I’d planned to to do a Sunday Post* yesterday, but we got back from our trip and I needed some time to recuperate from the vacation…LOL. We had so much fun in Maine. The company of my sister-in-law and brother-in-law was wonderful and the yummy food. bright blue skies and gorgeous scenery all combined to make a great trip. Here are a few photos from the Portland Head Light we visited the first day. This is the oldest lighthouse in Maine and it’s automated now. The Sunday Post returns next Sunday at its regular time! *The Sunday Post–hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
