Heading North to ME for Me!

Between the cold that has still lingered outside and the cold that knocked me for a loop last week, I've been feeling kind of overwhelmed and under-motivated lately.  Spring hasn't exactly sprung in New England nor has there been any sort of spring in my step either.  Time to change that I believe.

Now granted, I can't do anything about the weather even though I'm hoping Mother Nature decides to finally remove the grip that Old Man Winter has had on her and starts warming things up a little (minus quite so much rain) but I can do something about me and my general lack of enthusiasm and I shall be commencing that undertaking starting today as soon as I get the battery on my Nikon charged, my overnight bag packed, and directions programmed into my GPS.

I've been presented with the opportunity to spend the night at a Bed & Breakfast in Maine that I have been wanting to stay at for years - for almost ten years as a matter of fact! - and I'm taking that chance and planning on enjoying every single minute of it including the 3-hour drive to Kennebunkport, Maine to get there.  I'm looking forward to the drive north with just my iPod for company, the opportunity to take more pictures that are eventually going to need to be edited, and finally being able to spend the night in a beautiful former sea captain's mansion.

Even if the weather still isn't cooperating, I'm totally looking forward to this trip.  Hopefully you'll look forward to the posts to come that will tell you all about it!

    oooh, Kennebunkport? One of my favorite stores has a location in Kennebunkport -- The Best of Everything. Great jewelry, handbags, scarves, etc. for cheap! Also fun gift items...

    Have some seafood for me.

  8. It appears that we could be having a record cold April here in the northwest. I'm enjoying the gradually warming temps, because I just don't do well in the hot.

    I never mind the chill all that much. Just give me some blue sky a little more often.

    Enjoy your trip!

  9. Oh what fun!!! Look forward to seeing/reading all about it:)

    Safe travels. Big hugs, honey...
