More Maine Pictures

Here is the beautiful "Monet" like pond and one of the gorgeous sculptures, "The Man of Assisi"

Pictures from the Maine trip

Here we see Liz, Jeanne, Erin and Pam standing on the bridge by the pond, which is reminiscent of Monet's garden, on the grounds of the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, where they also had a plein air experience and had the opportunity to do watercolor and photograph the landscape and sculptures. Finally, this is Perkins Cove from our balcony, what a great view to wake up to!
