Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday and Happy T day to the lovely T day ladies. I hope your past week has gone well.
Last week was very busy for me with a few appointments, a mother-in-law heating emergency as well as few fun outings. One of those outings was a big one as I went on a day trip to Boothbay, Maine. I went with my walking friend and her sister. Although I see my walking companion frequently, I haven't seen her sister for quite awhile. It was great to see her.
Boothbay, Maine has been one of the sort-of-local places I've wanted to visit for several years, and the fact that the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens has these new troll statues this year made it a long but perfect way to spend a gorgeous autumn day. It was about a 2 1/2 hour trip by car each way, and when I finally got home that night, I might have been tired but I had lots of happy stories to share with my husband.
Our garden reservations weren't until the afternoon, but we left early enough to go into town, check out a few shops and have lunch. Unlike here in New Hampshire where you don't see many mask signs, it was great in Boothbay because most stores and restaurants had signs that said "It doesn't matter your vaccination status, wear a mask." I have been wearing a mask in public inside spaces even though I was vaccinated last spring.
