Honda 21" Push Mower


Over 12 years of faithful grass cutting I reluctantly spent $325 for this honda mower all those years ago. There are so many products where quality count and spending the extra money pays off. The only regret I have was getting the self propelled model. It was the first thing to go after several years and had to be cut out to free the mower to move more easily!


Yesterday the replacement arrived with a little something extra!



Back in action yeeee haaaaw!

The Cottage.

Along the Shore

The cottage in which we had the pleasure of staying for the next three days was just right. It was both quaint and comfortable.

At The Cottage

I stayed in this room upstairs in the bed closest to the camera view.

At The Cottage

There were all kinds of plants surrounding the cottage that added to the beauty of the property and many of the flowers had very pleasant scents!

The whole area was good for the body, mind and spirit!

Day 1 Took a Plane to Maine

 

Thanks to two generous friends I found myself flying to Portland Maine on May 30th. It was an early morning flight and the plane rose with sun as we left Tampa International.

Through the air

We had a 3 hr. layover in New York and then it was on to Maine.

Through the air

The air travel was smooth and uneventful and after landing in Portland I knew that most of the future movement would be by boat and golf cart.

Upon arrival in Portland we took a harrowing cab ride courtesy of an energetic Somali man and eventually made it to the ferry terminal. But not before feasting on an “Italian” featured in the image below!

If you find yourself fresh off a flight to Portland and want to refuel I highly recommend one. They can be procured from Amato’s.

Or destination for the weekend was a comfy little cottage on the South West coast of Great Diamond Island. More about that tomorrow!

Checking the top bar hive

The bees have had the top bar to themselves all Winter and Spring so today I decided to take a peek inside their operation.

Wild Honey

They were very calm and I was able to harvest a small portion of their honey stores. The 16 minute video below chronicles what I found!
