We knew the weather was going to be perfect last Friday, so we packed our old kit bag with munchies and water and headed out to Greenville on Moosehead Lake.
Oh, and what a wonderful trip we had! As we progressed farther west inland, Mother Nature's palette began to deepen with colors so intense we oohed and aahed over every tree, one more brilliant than the next.
This stop at Guilford is one of our favorites and I had to take a picture of the covered bridge!
This shot is taken from the bridge, looking north at the colorful trees and their reflection in the water.
Looking out the other side of the bridge gives a perspective of the rocks and the water streaming past under the bridge.
Not neglecting my class assignment to look for light and shadow, this shot of the far end of the bridge caught my eye.
On to Moosehead lake and Greenville, we stopped at Lily Bay State Park. The peace and quite of the park was so serene. If only we had spotted a moose, our day would have been complete.
Unfortunately, the only excitement of the day was being "mooned" by a stately pine tree!
We had lunch at the infamous Black Frog restaurant, where if you order the Skinny Dip beef sandwich, it's free of charge if you jump into the lake from their dock "au naturel". Needless to say, I paid for my lunch! We did, however, spy the tour boat "Katahdin" leaving her berth for a three hour tour. Unlike Gilligan's tour, I'm sure she returned just fine.
Outside, I spied a photo op in the bay. Leaves floating in the water.
A road trip in New England in the autumn would not be complete without a photograph of a picturesque white church nestled among the golden maple leaves.....
.... and, of course, my blog would not be complete without a few pics of the kitties!
His majesty, the Spikester sat still for one moment and allowed me to take a quick pic. Oh, those mesmerizing eyes!
Sluggo, of course, is always up for a glamour shot!
Yes, Life is Very, Very, Good!
