We haven’t blogged much this year, but our annual weekend at Ferry Beach near Saco, Maine is a favorite subject for photos and blog posts.

We went from a super soggy Saturday of rain and fog, to a spectacularly sunny Sunday for walking the beach.

There were some fun indoor things to do during the really rainy parts of the weekend, including LHB and friends leading a yoga session and both the girls appearing in the Goodwill Fashion Show portion of the traditional Talent/No Talent Show.

June has been wet and cool, except for that one crazy heat wave. The garden is happy, and this columbine is perfect for capturing big fat raindrops.

Fortunately, the sun has been breaking through in time for softball and nobody minds a few puddles.

We are still in school for two more weeks, with lots of field trips and excursions planned, so we’re hoping the sun continues to make timely appearances, especially when Grade 4 ferries out to Georges Island in Boston Harbor, and for our Canobie Lake day. But today, we’re hunkered down in the library, watching the rain.
