I’m back from vacation!

I’m back! I was without internet and couldn’t post for the last two weeks because I was with my family on the beautiful Maine coast, my favorite place in the world! We had a relaxing two weeks on the beach, although the weather was foggy and miserable pretty much our whole first week there. Luckily, during the second week the sun came out and it was hot. Just the way I like it. Below are a bunch of pictures I took on our trip!

I enjoyed watching the natural wildlife in our cove, including ducks (and super adorable ducklings!!), seals, and gorgeous herons!

For much of the first week, we had nasty fog. But it was still good for practicing golf swings and going for sea glass walks…




Christine came up for a few days!! We went into Kennebunkport for shopping and lunch on one of her days up.



Our friend Katie also came up twice. The first time, she brought her dog, Faith, who just happens to be Maddy‘s mom!




My sister, Hannah, rocked it on guitar both at an open mic night and a campfire!



Katie, my brother, Tom, and I had a blast playing with sparklers!!



Sunsets were appreciated…




Inukshuks were built on the seawall…this is just a sampling, we basically built a whole village. My favorite was Katie’s giraffe that she made!




Lobster was eaten!



And an all-around awesome time was had by all. It was yet another amazing summer vacation at the beach. So perfect.









And now, back to the real world! More work, more applying to jobs, and more seeing friends. Oh, and more blogging :) I missed this over the last two weeks and I’m really excited to post again!
