(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday

This common eider may have been sick or injured so we watched from a distance and then wrote “DO NOT TOUCH” in the sand around it!

This is Willard Beach, which provides a good vantage point for my upcoming swim (Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids: CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE!!)

The swim route goes past Fort Gorges (seen beyond the lighthouse jetty in the above picture).

Spring Point Ledge Light

In the above picture you can see Fort Gorges in the distance on the left; that is what I’ll be swimming past! And the instructions said not to get too close!

      Yes we can’t wait to one day have horses; for now once a week barn time is (just barely) cutting it ;) thanks for the well wishes for the swim!!! 💙

    Horses can be so sweet with wee ones, they seem to sense the need to be gentle.
    Summer in Maine is so lovely. I yearn for the seaside – the tang of salt air, gentle surf, beach, ah!
    How many miles will your swim be? Hope you have good weather and favorable currents. <3

      And the baby seems to also sense the need to be gentle with the horses! As my daughter said it “horses are so………..COMPASSIONATE!” ❤️ the swim is 2.4 miles! Thanks for the kind words and I hope you can take some time to get to the coast this summer!!
