We’re Ba-ack! from an AWESOME trip to Maine!

We’re Ba-ack! from an AWESOME trip to Maine! - July 2013

Rich and I just returned from an amazing week-and-a-half trip to Maine.  If you like rugged coastline, Atlantic Puffins, picturesque lighthouses and bridges, fog, sunrises, and stars, then stay tuned to my blog for the next few weeks.  I have plenty of adventures to share! :) First we visited Acadia National Park, located on Mount […]


Atlantic Puffins on Machias Seal Island

Atlantic Puffins on Machias Seal Island - July 2013

During my recent trip to Maine I had the great privilege to visit a breeding colony of Atlantic Puffins on Machias Seal Island. Puffins are pelagic birds, meaning that they live their lives out on the open ocean. They only come to land to breed and raise their young. Can you image living your entire […]


Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park - July 2013

I think I saw a few pigs fly by the summit of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park as Rich and I stood watching the sunrise. Yes, you read that correctly. Rich joined me for sunrise during our recent trip to Maine! It was especially nice of him because sunrise that morning was at 4:55am. […]


Star Photography In Maine!

Star Photography In Maine! - July 2013

Rich and I are both interested in astronomy, so we were excited to go to Maine where there is so little light pollution.  Part of the reason we rented a cottage at Seaside Cottages was the easy access to a little strip of beach on the western side of Mount Desert Island.  We spent several […]


Whale-Watching in Maine

Whale-Watching in Maine - July 2013

Ever since my six-grade class did a study of marine biology with a video series called The Voyage of the Mimi, I’ve been interested in whales.  The Mimi focused specifically on humpback whales, some of the largest whales in the ocean.  So when Rich and I planned our vacation to Maine, I scheduled a whale-watching […]


Another Perspective on Maine: A Special Guest Blog Post by Rich

Another Perspective on Maine: A Special Guest Blog Post by Rich - July 2013

During our recent trip to Maine, Rich amused himself with his iPhone, taking pictures of me doing silly things with the camera.  I told him he needed to write a guest blog post after we got home!  At first he thought I was kidding, but then he started to like the idea.  He did tease […]


Sandy Point State Reservation, Massachusetts

Sandy Point State Reservation, Massachusetts - July 2013

On our way back from Maine, Rich and I stopped at Sandy Point State Park. It’s on the southern end of an island about an hour north of Boston.  My objective was Piping Plovers, who nest in the area.  We have Piping Plovers in Florida during migration, but I haven’t had such good luck finding […]


2013 Christmas Ornament – A Puffin!

2013 Christmas Ornament – A Puffin! - December 2013

Regular readers of my blog may recall that I cross-stitch an ornament every year for our Christmas tree.  This year’s subject was a no-brainer – what was one of the most incredible things we did this year?  Go see puffins, of course! I thought the ornament turned out pretty well.  It looks very similar to […]

Revisiting an Old Favorite – Milky Way Photography - June 2014

After reading David Kingham’s Nightscape book, I revisited an old Milky Way shot and redid the post-processing. I’m loving the result!
