Later in July Kathy and I spent a week in a cabin on the coast of Maine. Neither of us had spent any time there before. The cottage was picturesque, in the woods, with flowers and a path down to the water. There was an upper deck (the picture of Kathy below on the left) where we sat in the evenings. The flowers on the coast enhanced Kathy's picture below on the right.
