White Christmas

December 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

On Christmas morning we awoke to “sea smoke.” It’s what happens when the air is much colder than the water below. Stunning. Then the snow started mid morning, just for Katy’s birthday. It was another beautiful, gentle snow, only about two to three inches in total. Enough to make everything beautifully white. Mark and Katy were visiting and Mark made great use of his new fancy camera. All the photos below were taken by either Mark or Katy.

The day after Christmas was gorgeous, sunny and bright. We took a drive off the island to Brunswick for lunch. Sewell Pond on Arrowsic was frozen and several ice fishermen were out there catching fish called black crappy. We ventured out onto the ice for some quick pictures and then made a run for the shore.

On Tuesday, Mark, Katy, and I took a drive up the coast to Rockland. We stopped along the way in Damariscotta to see the Whaleback Shell Midden. Had a nice lunch at the Thomaston Cafe. Stopped at the Owls Head Light. Saw the trap tree in Rockland. And ended the day at the Olson House in Cushing. A wonderful outing.
