The cottage in which we had the pleasure of staying for the next three days was just right. It was both quaint and comfortable.
I stayed in this room upstairs in the bed closest to the camera view.
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!

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

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