…my travels have taken me back and forth across my home state, via the loveliest country roads, through rolling hills and along craggy coastline. This past weekend I ate potato pancakes at a restaurant named The Happy Clam; I stayed in a strange motel ruled by an insane parrot; I wandered the paths and lawns of The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens; I watched movies at the second oldest drive-in theater still in operation in the country, while being eaten alive by mosquitoes; I ate waffles at my parent’s house; I drank Tarbox Cream Stout on a deck overlooking the Saco River; I discovered Rt. 220; and I came home to work for a few days so that I could continue the adventure at the next opportunity!

The only downside to my life at the moment is that I managed to delete all but a few of my photos from this trip during an odd moment with my still new-to-me computer… *sob* Ah, the digital age… Oh well.

On that note, here finally are a few other pictures from the summer’s travels:






  1. Ah, here it is all in one piece! Looks like a great trip. Isn’t the botanical garden a trip in itself?

    • The garden was totally amazing! I can’t believe I lost all my pictures – I’ve got about an eighth of my photos. Guess that’s just an extra incentive to go again sometime soon.

  2. I love that top one!

    • Thanks! The botanical garden was really quite lovely.

  3. Just beautiful! Your summer sounds wonderful, and I envy you that tent by the water. The computer difficulties seem out of place with the rest of the summer tale. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ugg, I know… Can’t believe I had such a stupid moment! Oh well. Got my memories still, and some scribbled notes, and plenty of other weekends I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. It looks like you’re having an AMAZING summer! I’m so jealous of your camping; we haven’t gone yet this year because it’s been so chilly (and, let’s face it, because it’s easy to let the time get away from you). Hope you keep having a fantastic time, lady!

    • I plan to do so Emily! I feel like the east coast has stolen the good weather from the west coast though… Maybe you guys will have the most exquisite fall to make up for it? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What lovely photos ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like you are enjoying the summer!

    • Thanks Ti. I’ll stop moaning about the lost ones…in another day or so!

  6. Ohhh Sarah.. how sad about the deleted photos. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Good thing you had a few left.. your summer looks lovely..

    • The accident of finding this post has brigetenhd my day
