Adventures on the Lupine Way

Two days ago, LM suggested I accompany him on a trip to Maine!  No urging was necessary, as Maine is one of my favorite places and a chance to enjoy its late Spring beauty was not to be missed. Our mission was to drive a very large truck to a small town a ways north of Augusta, AND to bring a 2014 neon green Mustang convertible back to Cape Cod. The trip up was beautiful as the Maine turnpike was lit up on both sides with masses of wild flowers. Most spectacular were the deep blue, pink and white lupines and the wild daisies amidst the buttercups and tiny wild iris. We didn't even mind several slow downs as it gave us more time to admire all the beauty.
 Green, green, green and buttercups
 A very large moose and a family of bears at a rest stop.
 This same scene was everywhere....

We finally arrived in Oakland, and made the switch to our ride home....I had not been in a convertible in many, many years and the feeling of the wind in my hair was so wonderful. We both felt like teenagers and with 50's music filling the air, we were back on the lupine highways to bring the mustang to its new owner in Chatham, but not before we stopped for seafood and some lobster stew.
Wind on my hair...
 The one who made it all possible and such fun, too!

Home......goodnight sweet chariot!
