Maine Retreat

I am back in Maine for a two week "retreat" to write, recharge, and create.  This is the first time I've been alone this long since my son was born (twelve years ago!).  I was full of trepidation as I set off with our two dogs and the car loaded down with all the supplies I might need for two weeks.  By the way, the car was as full as it is when all three of us head to Maine for two weeks!

I arrived in Eastport late Friday afternoon, picked up the keys to the apartment I have rented, and was greeted with this fabulous view from the deck:
I can watch the scallop boats head out early every morning.
The deck in the morning light -- such Maine light it is!
I have been having my morning coffee as I watch the sun rise over Campobello Island and the Cobscook bay.  Pretty sweet.

Before I head back to relaxation, research, and gathering sea glass, here are a couple of windows that I finished before I left home last week:

Enjoy this precious fall weather!
