Summer time in Maine

I am so lucky to live in Maine...the weather has been just absolutely perfect and look what my 75 year old amazing husband just built...just had to share.
This is looking off our back deck and the dogs are on the screened in porch, that he build the year before last!

We originally moved here from Chicago
(22 years ago) and have never been sorry....anyone coming up this way plese let me know and we can have a really good playdate...

How about lunch on the porch.....just to try and tempt you all.

Estelle

The Bella sisters want to tell you all that they have a fenced in yard and that they will play nice.

What a beautiful view and your husband is AWESOME! He built that at 75 years old? I love my DH but even in his youthful prime he could not have pulled that off. He's rather dangerous with a hammer, or any carpenter's tool for that matter.

He has always been able to do amazing things...big projects...moving buildings...rehabbing a 150 year old hugh house...loves back hoes and any moving and electric equipment, etc. etc.

Now when the toliet is leaking or the window is stuck or the faucet is dripping....it takes him forever (or never) to do it.

But I can't complain thats for sure. Wish I had half his energy...good old Missouri farm upbringing must have helped.

It is really nice in the summer...but you do have those wonderful winters I bet. It is really cold here and a lot of snow...so as per usual nothing is perfect.

The invitation is meant in all seriousness...great place for a little getaway....12 miles from Canada (at Calais, Maine) ...near St Andrews, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edwards Island. Lots of fun things to do in the summer...but we leave or hibernate in the winter.
