It was Mother’s Day and we headed off to the ocean at Hampton Beach despite the gloomy, cold weather. It was our third trip to Hampton — and as with the last two times we had a wonderful, fulfilling lunch at ‘Jumping Jack Java‘ — our new favorite eating place south of Portsmouth. Suffice to say, given the weather, Hampton Beach was not crowded. But, it was. Still a fair number of people. My first trip there with my new Canon EOS RP. Only took my 35mm RF lens. I wanted to get used to it. That it has a macro capability helped.

Given the unusually cold Spring all the flowers were not out — even on the coast. But, they had two displays. I captured as many to share with YOU. Enjoy.

My Walk In The Woods, In Alton, New Hampshire — On Sunday, May 5, 2019.

This was 1.6 miles from home. Property belonging to some friends. They have a lot of acreage, with two large ponds — one manmade (by them) — lots of elevation and views to kill. This was the most I have walked on their property. They were around and I did get permission.

Yes, I was trying to get mileage. Pretty sure that GPS was wrong. First the trees and the other that I was doubling back on myself. So, after awhile I decided just to hike for 1 hour — screw the GPS distance. It was a true hike. Wasn’t easy. I am still wearing a locked brace and using a stick!

But, it was fun. The dogs went with I. It was very rewarding. Amazing views and sites. Saw a HUGE pile of moose poop.

Taken at Aubuchon, Alton, NH with my new Canon EOS RP with a 24-105mm lens. As some of you know I can’t resist taking pictures of flowers. So, please get used to being bombarded with more and more flowers as the weather gets warmer.

‘Indian Market’ 2019 In ‘Bar Harbor’ (‘Acadia’), Maine, At The ‘Abbe Museum’ Will Be May 17 – 19.

by Anura Guruge



Click for details directly from the Abbe Museum.




They are claiming that it is the ‘Fastest Growing Indian Market in the East‘. That is good.

Mid-May? That seems unusually early in the Season to I. Kids are still in school (in New England) and given that it is northern Maine it isn’t going to exactly toasty Summer weather. I am surprised that it is not in June or July. C’est la vie. I would like to see it but there is no way I am going up there is mid-May this year. We went in March last year — but that was different. We wanted to experience a bit of Acadia in the ‘Winter’. May is neither here nor there.

‘Bar Harbor’ (‘Acadia’), Maine To Start Using Parking Meters As Of Summer 2019.

by Anura Guruge

I can see and appreciate the good and bad of this. Parking, especially ‘extended parking if you are going out on the water’, can get crazy in Bar Harbor during the Summer rush. Legal, extended parking is only possible on a section of ‘West Street’ — close to ‘Eden St’ (i.e., Route 3). This part gets filled up pretty quickly in the morning.

This said we invariably manage to find a place to park in Bar Harbor: morning, noon or night. The meters could help. Plus, there is always the FREE bus.

Lets see what transpires. I feel bad for the locals and workers that will have to pay. Bar Harbor is an expensive place to live and work.
