Travels with Mom

Had a great time the past 2 days traveling around the countryside with my mom! (Dad went off with Rock to Owl's Head Transportation Museum and got a look at the cars from the New England Car Auction awaiting transportation to their new homes. Rock would live at OHTM if he could!)

Mom and I hit the lighthouses. I had a list of ones that I wanted to see and it turns out mom wanted to see them, too. Of course, we also went to Popham Beach! Even though the weather was a bit stifling yesterday, there was a great breeze on the beach. Both mom & I find the beach to be our 'happy place'. And it seems it has moved on to another generation as one of the grandkids (great grandkid!) also would spend his time on the beach with a book and some chocolate.

A couple of pix from our adventure...

If you are a lighthouse fan, or just like to get out near the water, be sure to ask for our lighthouse guide to get directions! Mom did a great job as co-pilot using the guide.
