Monday at Sea

While Carson and his mom and dad were here, we took a little trip on the schooner Surprise from Camden Harbor. Here are some photos from that adventure: Raise those sails!

The Good: Carson gets a chance at the wheel. 
And the whole bunch posing with Carson: Son-in-law, daughter, Carson, me, Jerry.


The Random: While we are away, our landscaping company is working on our outside patio: The short wall in the back is part of our drainage project, as our backyard neighbors are kind of uphill from us. We have installed a French drain along the fence in the back, and there will be another on the other side of this short wall.

The Fun: From my Facebook friends: I thought this was so funny, since my little Polly always follows me to the restroom.

And here is another nice thought for today. Happy Monday, my friends. This is our last week in Maine.

Linking in today with Tamar for Good Random Fun.  Be sure to check out other posts on this meme! Yesterday, the 9th, was my big brother's 74th birthday.... Happy Birthday, Dan.

regarding your meme...imagine what they think about us collecting their poop in little baggies to go.

Wonderful photos. You will not want this vacation to end.

Patio is looking good. We have a drainage problem to address, I am dreading the doing of it.

Have a wonderful week.

A nice family photo! And the paving looks good. You must be enjoying a bit cooler temperatures in Maine.

That looks like a great day. I always love it when I can get on a boat. Your project is looking great and thank you for those funnies.

The random is definitely the patio. When you get back tell them (just for fun) that you want a different crooked line pattern.

What a lot of fun.

Cherdo said...

An ocean jaunt AND a new patio installation, all in the same week. You're living high off the hog, Linda! Good for you, girl.

Hello Linda Kay, I have been MIA because of so much company this summer. Thank you for visiting me and for your kind comment. I am only a week late and I have missed visiting you.

Love the schooner and your fun trip with great bird photos. Especially the closeup. A great shot and the bird didn't seem to care one bit. I love the Ozarks so have fun visiting your brother and family before heading back to Texas.

Happy Blue Monday,
Jeanne

What fun to go sailing! :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

You're braver than I would be to go out off the shore. LOL

And love the flagstone patio.

Enjoyed the peeking dog in the john too.

Cynthia said...

Such good advice, and the perfect thing to do in Maine -- go for a sail with family and a little skipper. Enjoy your last week!

Nonnie said...

What fun! You have shared some wonderful photos. I'm thinking I would maybe like to do that next year. I thought Maine was beautiful when we visited, but we didn't get to stay but a few days there. You chose a great time to leave Texas.

Marie C said...

What a fabulous sailing experience with your family! Loved the quote. Hope you are having a great week! I've gotten about three weeks behind with people! I'll never get caught up! :(
