I am exhausted!  Firstly from the 8 days of rain, downpour after downpour.  Then we had a wonderful treat for the weekend:  our older son and his girlfriend got up here late Friday night and stayed the weekend.  It is the first time in a few years that all of us have had a chance to spend time together.  They had an awful drive up from north Jersey on Friday in the rain and the wind, but today their return trip should have been a breeze!  Because of the rain, we didn’t do much until today when we did many of the Pemaquid Peninsula touristy things. We spent some time at the Granite Hall Store in Round Pond, and then took a leisurely visit down at the lighthouse on Pemaquid Point.  The lighthouse tower was open and the kids and John went up, so I took a picture from below (I have been up there many times).  It didn’t come out too badly, either, even though the camera was pointed almost into the sun.

Right now I am doing my imitation of a vegetable.  A little knitting as well as keeping my feet up! I am definitely not ready to go back to work tomorrow.  It feels like we just got a nice day and now it’s over too soon.  Ah well. It was a great weekend, one of the nicest ones that I can remember. Lots of food, laughter and fun with the family. Can’t do any better than that!

  1. So nice to see the granite hill store open! I think Robin will be coming back to visit just for that.
