Maine-ly For Fun, Part 3 - The Lake Cottage
Kevin was happy to join us for 4 days of R&R after his event planning experience. We headed for the home of my dear blogging friend, Midlife Mom. As she said in her post about our time together, "This is what blogging is all about."
It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed exploring a bit of their beautiful property - - -
We enjoyed meeting the horses . . .
. . . and Kevin especially enjoyed an up close and personal encounter with Kipper.
My grandgirls would be green with envy if they saw this great play house for MM's grands --
MM and I hopped in her vehicle, Kevin and DC followed us to our home for the next 3 days - their beautiful lake cottage.
If you follow MM's blog, you will remember that the cabin was destroyed on the inside from a broken water pipe which ran all winter long. What an amazing blessing in deep disguise, as the cabin is now pristine, brand new, beautiful inside and out. We felt so privileged to relax and enjoy this lovely place. We felt like we were at a first class resort.
Kev fixed breakfast for us the first morning - what a treat!
The views from the deck, across the lake, were blissful.
The trees on the other shore changed colors every day --
The guys took the canoe out that first morning - forgetting to hunt for the life jackets. Fortunately, the neighborhood warden didn't see them out on the water.
A walk down the country lane ---
My favorite tree, at the end of the lane just as we entered the highway. . .
Have a great week - stay tuned for Part 4, Acadia National Park
