Late Spring in Spy Garden

Very mysterious morning.

LILACS EVERYWHERE!!! The fragrance is divine!

 

The two pictures above were taken during a surf lesson at Corner’s Surf  in Old Orchard Beach! I stood up twice! Very fun but I like it when the waves are small(ish); during the lesson some of the waves seemed huge (and scary! haha!)! One of my favorite things is to just float/paddle around on the surf board: very relaxing. We have already amassed quite a bit of gear but an SUP would definitely be really fun around here too. If you are ever in OOB definitely consider a (FREE!!) surf lesson at Corner’s; they are awesome!

Ahhh the sea. Looks like a perfect place for a swim? How about a 2.4 mile swim?

The Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids is one of the oldest open water swims in the US! It begins at Peaks Island and ends at East End Beach in Portland; and I qualified! Yay! So excited to be a part of this cause!

Your donation will help more [southern Maine!] kids to participate in YMCA summer camps, swim lessons, and classes like tumbling, dance, karate, forest exploration, art, and more!

Last year, the YMCA of Southern Maine served nearly 10,000 children and provided more than $1.2 million in financial assistance and program support, ensuring children and teens in our community had the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. The money raised during the Peaks to Portland is a big part of that.

Passions for MOVEMENT, the ARTS, and the great OUTDOORS are the reasons why I serve others in their path to health as a nurse practitioner. I named my primary care practice Atlantic Family Health because I find the Atlantic ocean to be such a wonderful source of creative inspiration for health!! I am so excited to to support this wonderful cause and help promote the health of southern Maine!!!

Thank you so much for visiting my donor page and for any amount you can give; it is so appreciated!

Very tropical looking! And the vegetable garden is growing too!

Lily!!!

She is a Maine coon. Maine coons are a more hypoallergenic breed, they are indoor/outdoor great hunters of mice, cuddly, fun and smart: and we are sooooooo excited to have a kitten she is ADORABLE!! It is the first cat I’ve ever had (since I was always prone to allergies) but haven’t had any issues! We did however give Freya back to the bunny farm; she just didn’t seem happy and we thought she missed frolicking with the other bunnies. We see her owner regularly and get updates and pictures; Freya looks really happy to be back at Holland Heart Rabbitry. If we built an outside pen/area (Freya was an indoor bunny!) then we would consider getting bunnies again, but for now we are definitely enjoying this kitty/glad Freya is happy. <3

Summer nights are nearly here! In Maine you can definitely tell it is still spring; still a dozen days until it is officially summer; we are soaking up every minute of the chilly mornings, warm days and cool evenings; it is divine! Happy Monday all and thank you for visiting!
