2013 The Eastside Story Day 17: If A Picture Could …

Rebecca and Mike were such wonderful hosts that leaving them was hard and it took until after 10 to get on the road. 

On US 1 views of the ocean are intermittent at best between Portland and Bar Harbor but with a little luck one might actually see the water and one will most definitely see a whole lot of roadside eateries featuring lobster....

...and really big coffee cups.

The heat wave has broken and with it came the overcast sky again. There was a hint of rain early on but as the day went by the dark sky disappeared. Today ended with a lovely sunset over the water.

As I walked through the campground I thought how wonderful it would be if I could take a picture that could let you smell the salt air mixed with smoke and hear the campfires crackling. Life is good.


  1. Lobster and coffee, what else would you need?

    Your image of salt air and campfire smoke sounds wonderful. I miss going to the ocean...

  2. AHH. I know those roads and it is such a wonderful view. Enjoy Acadia. Sigh...I'm just reliving good memories. :)

  3. Not to worry, those scents you mention are right here while I'm looking through your photos.

  4. I'm really liking that sunset photo!

  5. I am starting to get a little jealous, here on the middle coast. :)

    Concerning the giant coffee mugs - did they do a good job of keeping the coffee HOT?

  6. Nice post Karen.

    When I close my eyes and can still smell the sea air and the way it makes your body feel.

    Glad you are having more comfortable weather.

    You continue to lead, and I'll follow. Silly Bob.

  7. Here I thought that first picture was going to be a favorite then you went and posted a sunset picture. Very nice.
