Maine in July

 Now that it is August and tomorrow we head out for another adventure I felt I had to go through July's adventures and share.

 July was the same as June, a trip to Maine, however so very different.  This time we headed to Islesboro, a short trip on the ferry and a world of change.  Blue sky, green grass, cool water, and everyone you pass gives you a wave.  It's a slower way to live.

 There aren't too many places to go on the island so we make do with what we have.  One thing we do have is GrandmaNan's enormous garden, I do think she could feed the entire island if they were cut off from society for the summer.   She had a jolly time setting up a scavenger hunt for Lila and Max.  They traveled under bridges, over bridges, looked under plants, and dug holes.  At the end each kid found an picture of an ice cream cone, then we headed to one of the shops on the island, The Dark Harbor Shop, to enjoy our rewards!


 There always seems to be one dark and story day on the island, which is nice and cool.  This time we spent the day with a puzzle, even Max got to help.  He was so excited to find the moon, and actually help make it fit.  Don't tell anyone, but dad kind of helped.

Every other minute was sent down the short walk to the water, where Max played with boats for what seemed like hours.  Mix in a few bike rides, some knitting, and more ice cream and you have summed up our July. 

Tomorrow we head to Iowa to spend time with my family.  maybe I will actually post a photo while we are in the middle of an activity... maybe I'll just enjoy the moments and get back to you!
