Weekend Waterview: Coastal Maine Getaway

Happy Sunday! I’m taking you along on a trip to Maine to enjoy some beautiful coastal scenery, lobster and lighthouses! This was our first visit to Maine and it was more beautiful than we imagined. We spent 5 days there, just long enough for a taste and to whet our appetite for a return trip! We flew…

Weekend Waterview

I hope your weekend is just ducky! Our resident Mallards made a new friend recently. A domestic Pekin duck. . . They’re unable to fly, too heavy to get airborne. That combined with her lack of camouflage makes her a “sitting duck” on the lake. I breathe a sigh of relief when I see her swimming…

Weekend Waterview and Tidbits

Happy Sunday! We took an early morning boat ride, enjoying the sunshine and a nap on the pontoon. Flying our flag for 9/11 with some plane contrails visible in the blue sky. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on White Dog Therapy and your thoughts and prayers for our family. Your comments were so touching they…

Weekend Waterview: Boating with Dogs

We haven’t been boating much this summer for one reason or another. But it’s one of our favorite things when it’s not too dog gone hot. Early mornings or late evenings are our preferred times for a ride, avoiding the heat of the day. There’s nothing like feeling the wind in our ears. . . Or…

Weekend Waterview: Osprey Nests on the Lake

We always look forward to boating in the summer to check on “our” osprey nests. Osprey return to their same nest each year in March here on the lake, after wintering in Central and South America. They can log more than 160,000 migration miles during their 15-to-20-year lifetime. They build their nests on manmade structures . . . channel markers, duck…

May Day Basket and Weekend Waterview

Happy May 1st! I’m celebrating with a May Day Basket, hanging on our dock post instead of a doorknob! I’ve been Singing the Wildflower Blues this week, in praise of Bachelor Buttons, also know as Cornflowers, blooming in the field next to my Potting Shed. Ox-eye daisy, a common roadside daisy, popped up this week…

Spring Forward to Boating Season!

We’re enjoying our 3rd warmest March in 75 years, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s later this week, so boating season arrived with daylight saving time this year! Some elbow grease is required to spring forward to boating season. . . Which requires some bleach and a some Chateau de “Bateau” for the job. . . Best…
