The Good List 8-3-11

Today's list is brought to you by last week's trip to Maine (which I promise to stop obsessing about eventually ;-)

10. The smell of salty air.
9. What was likely the freshest seafood I've ever eaten.
8. The quintessential Maine coast architecture. There's just something about it.

7. Not hearing a phone ring for 3 days straight.
6. Not knowing or caring what time it was pretty much the entire time we were there. It's been a looooooong time since I've been able to do that.
5. Getting to watch up close one of the fishing boats come in and unload their treasure.

4. The sounds of the harbor. The faint voices of fishermen in the early morning hours, seagulls announcing their presence overhead, and the powerful and yet somehow at the same time wonderfully relaxing sound of waves crashing against the rocks.
3. The fantastically lush layers upon layers of flowers in every color, size, shape and design you can imagine.

2. The beach we had all to ourselves for long stretches of time. Total serenity.

1. Getting to watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean, which was a completely unexpected treat that I didn't even think was possible.
