It’s dark.
But there is enough light from the moon to see the silhouettes of the islands in the bay.
I can hear the waves lapping gently against the shoreline.
I can hear a bell buoy ringing.
I can hear a what might be a fog horn far in the distance.
And occasionally, just often enough to lift your spirits, I can hear a loon call.

The air is cool and crisp, even this close to the water.
The temperature is in the 40sF (5C), but I can’t bear to close the door and block out the beautiful sounds.

Yes, we’re back in Maine.

Hi Gail -
Excellent idea! But with the spotty cell and MiFi coverage on MDI, I think it will have to be from the balcony!

Hi DMM -
It's absolutely on the schedule! Chuck and I both made your claw gesture with our hands when we read your comment!

Hi Irene -
Thank you! It is and we shall!

Hi Roo -
Tee hee right back at you!
There's a winery here in the US called "Smoking Loon". We love their Pinot Noir. When Chuck heard the loon last night, he made comment that it sounded good - not like a smoker!
