A Day Spent Working On The Tax Return

This is one of the many views we get to enjoy each day during our walk along Ocean Avenue in Sorrento.

If you happen to stop to take in the above view, you may notice a gravel footpath that will lead you down to a place that not everyone knows about.

At the end of this path you'll notice the remains of a fallen old oak tree with it's branches spread out along the shore.

Those are some of the mountains of Acadia National Park that you see across the water.

If you look behind you to your right, there's a place to sit down.

Nothing fancy, mind you, but it serves it's purpose well.

And it comes with a special reminder.

Seated, when you look out starting from the right side and continue your gaze toward the left, here are the views from this bench.

I'm glad I have this place to go, especially on days when I need a little reminder.

What a gorgeous place to sit and ponder. Lili, you sound to take so much enjoyment from life (even when faced with a tax return!) I love reading your blog. Those art sessions with your friends sound such fun.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I havent checked out our lake here yet but I have, the beach. And there are some driftwood logs people use to just sit and think and watch the waves. For now, thats my spot.
