    Hey all. I wanted to thank you for the condolences and kind words you all had of my recent loss. [​IMG] I'm am now thinking a raccoon?? Whatever it was pried the little pop door on the run open just enough to pop out a the clasp of the locking eye hook I had on there. I told my neighbor two houses down about it (he has about 15 laying hens)and he's setting a trap. [​IMG] We usually never see coons around, but I guess early snow and cold temps forced them to look for easy prey??

    Anyhow, the 3 older Silkies I have left are doing good. I think Zeus was just scared out of his mind, but they are in my cellar (along with young ones I hatched out from Lisa) and doing good. My DH is none to impressed to have birds in the house, but he's also not pleased with the amount of money I spent building up the flock just to have them wiped out. I'll be able to rebuild my flock, well the blues and splashes anyway, with the nice ones I have from Lisa. The greys are going to be harder to replace I think. I bought Athena and Zeus from MN and Hera was just a luck of the draw who came from NH.
    Okay enough rambling. [​IMG]

    I took some pictures of our road trip yesterday and then today we went to my mom's. I hope you enjoy the pictures of my beatiful state!

    Headed east to the coast.
    This is somewhere around Belfast I believe.
    This is the new bridge over the Penobscot they built in Buckport, near Fort Knox (the Maine version). You can see the old bridge behind it.
    Here's the view from that bridge.
    This is about 25 miles from my Grandma's. You're looking out across the bay to Bar Harbor.
    Now the western end of the state, up to my Mom's. My BFF lives on this hill. My mom lives about 2 miles away from here.
    Surrounded by mountains.
    On the same hill
    Another angle on the hill
    Same hill.
    Hope you enjoyed!!

    Nice photos Angie. My family is from Stonington, so I have travelled that way many times. Always relaxing for me to see the water again.

    Really nice, I have not been up to Maine in awhile and it truly is a beautiful state. We had a sunny day here too but they are calling another Nor'easter tomorrow I think the weather said as of last night.
    And Angie I just want to throw in that last March I lost just about my whole flock and it was all my fault. I went to bed and left the pen and coops unlocked and you can only imagine what I woke up to. I definately wanted to give the whole chickens thing up after that, they were all young gorgeous hens who had not even really started laying yet. Butttttttt, we make mistakes, things happen, and chickens are predator magnets. I like them more in my life then out of it!! So on I went and rebuilt it back up and you will too. It has happened to just about all of us!!!

    Beautiful pics.
    My grandmother's best friend moved up to Belfast and my Aunt's ex is up there too, almost to Canada.
    And a lady I met on Freecycle, who I introduced to chickens, is up there too running a B&B.

    Beautiful pictures! That must be why no one from Maine moves to North Carolina! [​IMG]

    Maine seems very beautiful and remote. You are lucky to live in a such a lovely state that seems not to be overly exploited by people.

    Quote:It's a long ride... My Grandma and Aunt live in Milbridge, which is about an hour and a half to west of Lubec, the most eastern point of the USA. I used to spend my summers in Milbridge and we'd go to Bar Harbor, Campabella Island and Schoodic Point.

    Another cool thing, my Grandma lives across from the Wyman "mansion" it's kind of annoying because all the tourist stop and take picture of it from her porch. Wyman's wild blueberries anyone? [​IMG]
