Today I turned 47. I have decided that I will not officially feel old until I reach 50. The family had a special dinner with my favorites and I am seen here sporting one of my birthday presents. Maya preformed a small piano concert in my honor and Nicolai received his flute today and already has achieved a pretty good tone.
On the way home we stopped for lunch at a seaside lobster shack where Jeanine enjoyed a traditonal lobster roll. We also stopped to do a little antique shopping and briefly detoured into Kennybunkport where we found a quiet ocean overlook on which to renew our wedding vows to each other.
We really enjoyed the group we were hiking with. Each member was fascinating in their own right and we got a chance to know them well over the many miles of conversation. When we arrived at the B&B they had arranged a bouquet of flowers and bottle of chilled champagne in our room in honor of our wedding anniversary.
Everywhere you look in Maine you are sure to see something which floats on the water. The small buoys in the foreground are connected to ubiquitous lobster traps each color coded to identify the owner.
We stayed at a very lovely bed & breakfast on Hogsdon Island, nestled among the rivers and inlets which define the Maine coast line in this area. We were part of a hiking group which explored a number of land trust conservation areas.
