Looking Up

We took a short road trip yesterday down Route 127 to Georgetown, Maine. You've perhaps heard of 'daily devotions'. Well, Elenka and I like to call short day trips like this our 'daily adventures'. Along the way we stopped off at Robin Hood Cove, took an extremely narrow loop road in a driving rain, stopped at the serene Five Islands Harbor for a respite and eventually made our final destination, the beach at Reid State Park. We spent most of the afternoon here watching some pretty amazing cloud formations work their way across the canvas above. We remarked to each other that the there has been some astonishing clouds the last few days. I'm sure the threat of thunderstorms and just the daily passing showers have been the prime culprits, but it's still pretty neat. It also gives you another activity to do on the sand when you tire of napping and people watching. Here the grassy dunes provide a pleasing backdrop for some late afternoon, fast-moving clouds.

  3. Magnificent - the bio sky coming at the edge of the greenery- a hill?- makes for a good angle.

  4. So you're saying your daily devotions consist of daily adventures where in a meditational state you get caught up in the clouds.

    Sounds like fun. I think.

  6. Sounds like a perfect daily adventure day -- a daily ritual of mine is to look up and check out the daily cloud formations, if any are there. Nice shot of your beach clouds -- barbara

  15. Nice clouds. We have had pretty blah skies here for the past few weeks. I could use some pretty clouds in a blue sky.

    But, get tired of napping and people? Surely, you jest. At least, so long as the people watching has a big component of lovely ladies. If not? More napping.
