I left for Maine on the 2d of October and was back home by the 5th. I had a cold when I left here and by the time I was headed back, I had bronchitis and a sinus infection. I needed to be home to get to a doctor and to rest in my own bed. I'm starting to feel better after resting for the last week and antibiotics. The flight into Portland was so beautiful with the islands and the blue water washing up on the beaches. Julie, it made me think of you and your island home.
I did get to take a ride and take some wonderful photos during the few days I was there (when I wasn't in bed trying to sleep things off). We took a drive up to Sunday River and took a road along the river where I spied a beautiful pool between the fast running water coming down the mountain. My great son-in-law was kind enough to pull over so I get some shots of the amazing view.
This is beautiful little pond that lies between the upper and lower streams. I could have stayed here all day.
Here is the river flowing on after pooling in the spot above. I could just imagine wading into the water with a fly rod, trying to catch trout, something I've always wanted to do.
This is a shot of the river flowing into the beautiful reflecting pool. It was heaven. You can see the fall color on the trees in the background. The leaves haven't started to change this much in Virginia yet. I don't think we've had enough chilly weather yet.
The new photo in my header is another photo of this magical and beautiful place. Can you tell that I LOVED Maine?
