Throwback Thursday!

Those were the days!  First song I heard this morning-'Moonglow'. Reminded me of the movie 'Picnic' with Robert Holden and Kim Novak.  See if this clip brings back memories.

An Hour at the Museum

We went to the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock this week to see the Mid-Southern Watercolorists Annual Juried Exhibition. It was wonderful. Especially since one of our fellow member of Brush Strokes Art Club of Hot Springs Village had a painting that was juried into the Exhibition.

Maine No. 27 of 50*


Up until August 2013 Maine had been in one of those states that I had been 'in and out'.  Chuck was determined that he would see Maine that year with or without me.  I decided I didn't like the 'without me' option so I jumped in the car and away we went on a 5,000+ Road Trip.  We hit several states before we arrived at Camden, Maine, to begin one of our most memorable trips. We added to our 'Top Ten.


We met Sherri and Scott in Camden at the White House Inn. An iconic Inn that was the setting for the movie 'Peyton Place' starring Lana Turner. We loved Camden-a lot of neat shops, a short cruise on the Penobscot Bay, a side trip to Rockland and the Farnsworth Art Museum/The Wyeth Center.










We didn't stay long in Camden before we headed to Deer Isle where we stayed for several days.  There was a lot to see and do, but we mainly 'hung out' with family and enjoyed our visit.


Enjoyed the Scenery

Played a little music

Bought some lobster right off the boat

Then ate it with corn off the cob

Continued to hang and read a little

Did a little sight seeing:










Our stay on Deer Isle soon ended and 
we headed to Bar Harbor 
and Acadia National Park.

with other travelers who took 'The Voice'
on their travels.

A blow hole.  We got there just
after it blew.  Didn't stick around
2 hours for the next time.

At the end of the trail
lunch at the Jordan Pond House.
Yumm!

What a wonderful place to end our Maine trip. The next day we left and headed home.  We had traveled 2,500 miles and had another 2,500 miles to get home to Arkansas. 
It's always fun to travel to faraway places,
but it's even sweeter to come home!
*For "new to my blog" friends...on May 17, 2010, I visited Wisconsin.
 I can now say that I have been in, to or through all 50 United States.
