First Stop--Blue Hill Maine

O.K. This picture is way out of order, it belongs at the end with the dinner pictures. Silly me can't figure out how to move pictures around, but I wanted to add this one!

Well, we finally made it after a long 13 hour drive. It took a lot longer than we thought. We were pulling a trailer because my husband wanted to bring his motorcycle, and all the pee stops with Stella and us humans, and of course food.
This is a shot from the parking lot of our hotel. (first stop.)

We stayed at a place called Eggemoggin Lodge. It was beautiful and right on the water. This is a morning shot, and is very foggy on the coast of Maine. The dock goes out for the lobster boaters.

Morning breakfast. Yes, it is doggy friendly and welcomes all dogs. Stella had bacon and sausage. We stopped in Blue Hill, Maine for the first 2 days to meet some friends my husband works with.

They had a great view and wanted to take us out on a island. Getting ready to pack-up and go out on the boat. So beautiful!

Here we go, heading out to an island to have a picnic lunch on the beach. I have no idea where we are going! This is the very next morning after we drove 13 hours, and I'm trying to keep a smile on my face.

Here we are on sum-beach, having some cheese and crackers. It was just beautiful. Stella didn't know what to do. There was no grass anywhere to be found! We where there for a few hours, then the fog started to roll in.........we had to pack-up quickly!

Before we left the island beach, I got a picture of "THE SLEEPING GIANT". I know there is a lot of versions of this, but I was told to get a picture!

OH MY GOSH!!!! How cute is this? Have you ever in your life seen anything this cute? I can't even believe that I found this cute little tiny baby, itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, darling little CRAB!!!! (In the sand, on the beach??)

Now off to dinner.

Sandy and Rich put on a fantastic lobster dinner. Rich picked up a bunch of lobsters at a local lobster shack. Sandy is at the end of the table.

Thank-you Rich for a wonderful dinner. Can't get any better than lobster and corn on the cob!

Stay tuned for part 2 & 3.

    As for your pics, next time when you're making a post, click on the tab that says Edit HTML. Insert your pics. They will be in an HTML format with words and codes. Just know where one pic starts and another begins. Anyway, you can cut & paste the pic anywhere you want it but you must be in this tab as opposed to the "Compose Message" tab. Start with one pic so you get an idea of what the format looks like. This is where I always correct my spacing too. It doesn't always work in the compose message tab.
