Well I'm off, back on the road to Maine. This trip will include myself, my daughter and three of my granddaughters. I thought I'd have a little fun and created some vinyl images to put on the van windows. This way everyone outside knows what we're dealing with inside!
The pictures aren't very clear, but I have to say the vinyl came out great and look pretty good on the windows. I applied them to the far back windows so as not to obstruct any vision while driving.
While the reason for our journey is to bury my mother, who died April 11, we are looking forward to the family gathering and just being in Maine. It's our favorite place. We'll be staying on Deer Isle, but Mom will be buried on an island 6 miles out in the ocean called Isle au Haut. She grew up on there. The island is beautiful. My grandparents are buried there and that's where she wanted to be buried as well, so we are fulfilling her wishes. We have a very small family cemetery behind the church you see in this LINK of Isle au Haut pictures.
The one room school house just celebrated it's 100th anniversary a couple of weeks ago. Mom went to school there. Right now there are 3 students at the school.
When the lighthouse was a working lighthouse, my great-grandfather was the light-keeper. Such a great place with a great family history! Population is about 50 year round, with a few dozen more during the summer.
