Headed Down East

According to Down East Magazine: “When ships sailed from Boston to ports in Maine (which were to the east of Boston), the wind was at their backs, so they were sailing downwind, hence the term ‘Down East.’ And it follows that when they returned to Boston they were sailing upwind; many Mainers still speak of going ‘up to Boston,’ despite the fact that the city lies approximately 50 miles to the south of Maine’s southern border.”

To my blogging friends and readers: tomorrow my family and I will head to Maine for a 1 week vacation on the beach.  I expect my internet access to be limited, perhaps only via Hubby’s iPhone, so I don’t plan to be doing any posting and will probably catch up on reading all of your blogs upon my return.  I plan to take lots and lots of photos to share! I should probably clear out my 4GB memory card, just to be sure!  I will be keeping Scott Thomas’s photo assignment in mind, and I hope you will too!

Have a wonderful week and keep your fingers crossed for nice weather for us!  I’ll leave you with some shots from last year’s vacation.


  1. Oh, have a WONDERFUL time!!! I hope the weather is kind to you! My hubby is off next week as well but we are just staying home and relaxing.

    Safe journey, Karen! Hugs! 🙂

    • Thank you! Unfortunately, the snotties place is gone! 😦 There’s a restaurant called “Buffleheads” there now.

  3. Buffleheads? I don’t feel inclined to say it with quite the same gusto as Snotties, but it’s not bad!

    Have a great time!
