Cobblestone Kisses

 Kisses: Keep It Simple, Soft & Especially Sweet

Because not everyone likes their bears, 
mice and bunnies dressed, I am 
introducing a new line called 
Cobblestone Kisses.

Cadbury is the first of these and is
 now available on my website

Hope you like her!

You never know what you're going to see in the Camden harbor. 

A few days ago, replicas of the Nina and the Pinta sailed into town.

Can you imagine crossing the ocean in these?????

I cannot imagine a more perfect day!

I celebrated a birthday recently.  The custom 
Mr. Cobblestone and I have is that the 
birthday gal/guy decides how we spend the day.

Mine started with a lazy morning of coffee and emails, 
which, truth be told, was not 
that different from my usual routine.  

We grabbed some picnic food and lunched 
at the top of Mt. Battie.  
It is one of my favorite places, just a few miles
 from our home in Maine.  From there you look
 out over the tiny town of Camden, 
and the islands in Penobscot Bay.

Such a view!

After lunch we poked around some of 
my favorite shops in Camden.  

Sadly I found nothing I wanted to 
bring home at the antique shop. . . . this time. 

A quick stop to wet our whistles with  a
delicious Cole Porter and we were off to Owl's Head 
to see Captain Rod to get the makin's for our dinner 
that Mr. Cobblestone was going to prepare.

I just love that we get our lobsters right from the fishermen
and in such a gorgeous spot. 

The lobsters are molting early this year, and I learned 
that they are referred to as shedders.  Well, our shedders 
were so soft shelled that we didn't even have to 
use any tools to eat them.  They were literally more 
like eggshells ~ and super sweet.  

Our last excursion took us to Lincolnville for a 
craft beer at the newly opened Andy's Brewpub.

  We chose that spot because we knew it 
would be the perfect place to watch 
the super moon!

I suppose I'm a simple gal with simple needs, 
because I really cannot imagine 
a more perfect day.

Thank-you, Mr. Cobblestone!

Picnic on the breakwater

One of our favorite things to do in the 
summers here in Maine is to take a picnic 
dinner out on the breakwater.  

It extends almost a mile out into the harbor 
with a lighthouse at the end.  
Neither Mr. Cobblestone or I are fond the 
heat and humidity that sometimes descends on us, 
and we can always count on 
nice cool ocean breezes out here.

That's me!
On our last visit, we were treated 
to a show from from seals.  
I had heard they were around, 
but this was the first time we saw them for ourselves.

Ah well, we'll try for better pics the next time we see them.

I have just learned that today is 
National Teddy Bear Picnic Day, 
so we'll be dining out there again tonight.

Monday, July 7
