JanMary asked a few questions that will require more than one post to answer; however, I’ll tackle two of her three questions today.
Where in the world would you most like to visit?
Because I was lured by a PBS special, I would love to visit the little islands off the coast of Greece.
Where was your best vacation?
When we have time off, we usually visit family. This isn’t bad considering most of our families live in the South. FringeBanker, my brother, and his family live in Florida and that is a favorite vacation destination for us. When FringeMan was in school, we lived about 2 minutes from my brother and his wife. The FringeChildren miss Uncle Jamie & Aunt Kelly, so their first choice of vacation spots is Pensacola.
Don’t even get me started on the beautiful white sand beaches…I may drive myself into a deep depression.
This past summer, we went back to Maine for our vacation and enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing week. We all enjoyed visiting our friends and removing ourselves from the hustle & bustle of New York living.
We stayed in this cute little cabin. Notice the tomato plant growing right alongside the stairs.
Maine’s coastline is rugged, craggy, and full of rocks. The entire state is full of rocks!
Every garden is a rock garden.
The water is freezing for most of the year, but the FringeKids just don’t care. They were born there.
Maine is called ‘vacation land’ for a reason. It’s an absolutely beautiful place to visit. If you’re thinking about moving that far North, just be sure to invest in several pairs of long-johns, a few space-heaters, and boots that come to your knees.
I tortured my family with a sunrise. You can read about it HERE.
I just realized that I have a few posts about our Maine vacation that never made it to publish. Looks like you may get another ‘summery’ post tomorrow.
Thank you for your questions JanMary. Did I mention she lives in Ireland? Go visit!
