Bay of Fundy...

We interrupt this regularly scheduled quilting blog to visit with a fellow Bay of Fundy-phile. I'm gonna post a few pictures if you guys don't mind. Nothing quilty. Well... I can't exactly promise that, can I? Here we go, Terri.

This is one of my favorite pictures that I took while in Maine. I can't say why, exactly... The quality is poor- the backlighting on the conservation officer makes the foreground grainy, the rain obscures the view out the lighthouse windows. Maybe I love it because it recalls the place so well. It was COLD. And as you can see, raining. And the wind was blowing so hard you could feel the gusts shake the lighthouse tower. I was completely enchanted. The conservation officer- I have no idea of his name, but it's a small place, bet we could find out... he kept trying to get out of my way so that I could get a good picture. I finally had to tell him that I wanted him in the picture. (I was probably as red as my hair! but my! doesn't he just look like a Mainer! He said he acts like one, too!) He keeps the lighthouse- the fresnel(3rd order?) is kept by the coast guard.

My word! Three posts in one day? I knew you were prolific in other ways but who knew you could post so much! I too have been making crafty messes all over the place - and somehow ignoring the messy house and the laundry crowding me in. Still have to finish a baby quilt and 6 table runners. But then I started a new crafty project yesterday and now i want to make a ton of those as Christmas gifts. The sewing table currently has two sewing machines plus piles of fabric everywhere. just enough room to work. Maybe i will take a while and clean it off tomorrow!! miss you!!

I think it may be your favorite because of the memory it invokes!! How fun to go up in the lighthouse. and a lovely view.

Did he have an accent? I didn't know we had a certain look but many of us do have a certain accent (not me): )

So glad you enjoyed our beautiful state.

Well, now I know a bit more about the Bay of Fundy! Before your post, it was just a geographic name, so I checked out Wikipedia. Thanks, girl! Love those stormy photos, but am glad to be inside with the fireplace blazing! Thanks.
