Grande Dames of Maine

Summer days in Maine were often similar to a Fall day in the south. The temperatures were cool and breezy, comfortable to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine and a fresh Lobster Roll as you became lost in your thoughts watching the sailing activity taking place out in the Atlantic. We took full advantage of day trips around the state of Maine, just strolling around the coastal towns, with no certain place to be, at any certain time. The day was ours to do as we wished.... walk, shop, eat and just people watch. This summer day, we toured Wiscassat, Boothbay Harbor and Bath, Maine. The homes were often majestical. What I would have given to just tour these homes and see the beauty and history inside of these Grand Dames!

We now live in a small Texas town that holds an historical district also. We can't wait to go exploring on an upcoming summer weekend and see what treasures surround us. I'll bet you too can find some interesting day trips to experience close to home that have yet to be discovered! Summer livin'.....ahhhhhhh! Be sure to treat yourself to something cool and easy at the end of your day! These refreshing sips are full of peach and citrus flavors!
