Color me Maine

Yellow, yellow everywhere at Cape Elizabeth

When it’s cold and raining outside, like it is right now, I’m glad to have pictures from our summer trip to lighten up the mood.  Maine in the summer time was bursting with color.  Coupled with beautiful weather, the scenery was truly a feast for the eyes.

  1. Apa Khabar, Nanette? That’s all the Malay I know. I’m from Malaysia. Anyway, thanks for the nice comment on my blog…it’s nice to know someone’s reading it.
    Your pictures of your Maine trip are gorgeous. We used to live in Boston, so I’m familiar with all the places you visited. We used to go to Old Orchard beach almost every summer. Did you eat at the lobster shack between the Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth?

  2. These are gorgeous photos, Nanette! It’s been a long since since I visited Maine, but I haven’t forgotten how beautiful it is. You’ve captured it beautifully!

    • Maine is definitely one of my favorite U.S states to visit. I love the rugged shoreline, lighthouses, and colorful flowers during summer time. And of course the abundance of lobsters! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

We are fortunate to live a relatively short distance away from one such marvel.  Ruby Falls in Tennessee's Lookout Mountain is located 1120 feet underground and is 145-foot high.

Usually we simply pass by it on the way to visiting other cities/states, or at most to make a quick stop to grab something to eat. 
But this week I have had enough of hibernating, and managed to convince the husband to do a day trip to Chattanooga.  One of the city's most well known attractions is Ruby Falls.  The falls is located underground, and to get to it we have to go through a cave located within Lookout Mountain.
