My Sunday Picture....

My Sunday picture is of the Nonantum Lighthouse, perched on the edge of the property of the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. It guards the Kennebunkport River as it enters the village.  Note it is still festooned in a now dried up Christmas wreath even as we enter spring. This is typical in Maine, as you ride around, to see these brown wreaths still hanging on for dear life in various places.

Here is the Kennebunkport River as it heads toward the sea, away from the lighthouse.

All the boats are still out of the cold water, covered in their own personal shrink wrap to protect them from the harsh Maine winters along the coast. 


Here is a shot of Walker's Point, the President George Bush compound off of Ocean Avenue.

Kennebunkport is gorgeous in the summer and really quaint during the Christmas season when all the shops are decorated in tiny white lights and greenery. But even during the ugly month of March, it still has it's charm.

"...brown wreaths still hanging on for dear life". Loved the description.Thanks for the pictures from your part of the world. That's just a little holiday home is it, the George Bush compound? When they're up from Texas? 'scuse my cynacism.I was fascinated by your previous post about toilet seats. I've never seen or heard of a split toilet seat, and asked husband if he had. His reply was "Ye-ah!" as in what planet are you from.I obviously have to get my butt out to a few more places, preferably not where there's a square toilet seat - than would just feel wrong. Thanks for visiting recently. I enjoyed your comment.

Elenka, The photos of Maine are beautiful. I've never visited the northeast states and I think it's about time Phil takes me on a road trip.

Have a happy day

I'm proud to announce that my wreaths are long recycled by now, thank you, although there are many in my neighborhood which still cling to doors and windows.

Really nice photos! You represent us well.

I spent a semester in Portland back in my college days, and I always say I am going to sail there one of these days.
