Sunrise in Rockland, Maine

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

Ok, so I didn’t actually get to see the sun rise because I had to get back to LimeRock Inn to take care of the dogs and serve breakfast. But….I did get some beautiful shots of the pre-sunrise light over beautiful Penobscot Bay and Rockland Harbor. Check out some pictures here.

Penobscot Island Air

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Two years ago, a wonderful guest of our from Lancaster PA named Donna invited me to go along with her on a plane ride over Penobscot Bay. There were several lighthouses that she wanted to see that could only be viewed by boat or by plane. Since it was winter, a boat was out of the question so she chartered a flight with Penobscot Island Air. The offer scenic plane rides in the area. Last year, Frank and I won a plane rider for four at our local chamber auction and since Donna was visiting again, we decided to return the favor and take her with us. Our neighbor Bill also came along for the ride. The fall leaves are at their peak right now and it was a beautiful warm autum day here in Rockland. We took in several sights during the plane ride including flying over Wolsgrover Island, which is owned by our neighbors Lucy & Bill. The highlight of the trip was a flyby of the LimeRock Inn! It is amazing how different everything looks from up above. We had a wonderful trip although I find the older I get, the less tolerance I have sharp banking in small aircraft!! Enjoy the pictures here.

Fall Weddings in Rockland Maine

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

Yesterday, guests of ours got Married at Birch Point State Park. They were a very nice couple from Ohio. At LimeRock Inn, we have a small wedding, elopement package that includes lodging, wedding cake, the bouquet, boutinierre, cake topper, champagne reception and a wedding officiant. I also photograph the entire ceremony and put the photos on a CD for the couple. We have done several in the past in our backyard gazebo. This one took place right on the rocks at the beach. You can check out the details of the package here.

Although the weather was uncooperative most of the day, we got a small break right during the ceremony. Even on cloudy days, the coast of Maine is just beautiful. We are nearing peak for our falls colors and the gray of the sky brought our the reds and oranges of the leaves even more.
