I love to stream movies and tv shows. I really do. When I’m writing or working, I like having some kind of noise in the background. Usually, it’s an old episode of Friends, or a movie I’ve seen a million times.
I’ve been doodling a lot lately, and I really like how it compliments my writing. I’ve always doodled (claim to fame being a Tina Belcher Valentine’s Day Card), mostly for fun, during meetings or downtown at the bar.
Over Labor Day weekend, I climbed up Mount Battie. Utilizing the Mount Battie / Mount Megunticook Trail, I went up Mount Battie first, and then up to Ocean Lookout.
I have one rule about sudden staircases. You must go up them. As evidenced in my post about Green Lake, I’m not hesitant to do so.
Camden, Maine. It’s either the real life Stars Hollow or the real life Camden, Maine. Think boutique shops, lots of pretty sailboats, and super shiny shop windows warning not to even think about bringing a drink in there.
I was on my way to hike Mount Battie, when I passed through Camden and spotted these treasures. The sighting inspired an almost two-hour delay to my mountain top ooh-ing and awe-ing.
Sometimes I wander off, and end up somewhere I may or may not be allowed to be. Did you follow that?
The Breakwater Lighthouse in Rockland Harbor was one of the best parts of my time there. I walked out on the rocky pier, which reminded me a lot of the large rocks you can walk on in Reykjavik’s harbor.
For me, capturing a place in a few photos is all about characters. When I went back to review my Rockland photos, I realized none of them were of the downtown buildings or streets.
The trail is still. Sweat trickles down my back, although there’s a ton of shade. Somewhere in the distance, I hear two women softly speaking spanish.
