Chebeague Island, Maine

I thought you might like to take a minute to escape to one of my favorite places.

It’s a small island called Chebeague, in Maine’s Casco Bay.
Just north of Portland.

Folks have been enjoying Chebeague's beauty since the mid-1700s.
You can imagine how old and wonderful some of the homes are.

The cars on the island don't need to be inspected,
 so there are some great old cars too.

Chebeague is the home of simplicity, and down-to-earth goodness.
And beauty that stretches as far as the eye can see.

The living is easy....

Island life at dusk.

Chebeague is a lobster & steamed clam lover's oasis.

The view from the porch of the Chebeague Island Inn.
Ooh la la...

As you might have guessed
I found some aging beauties on the island too.

Celebrating Chebeague's endless charm.

This beauty is about to turn 40.

And this one is already 70 if you can believe...

Aging gracefully, one day at a time.

Island joie de vivre.

Just one last picture...
this little wee-guy is only 10 weeks old. 
I could have taken him home.

Happy July everyone.


  1. What a lovely pictorial! I was just saying to my husband that we should make plans to visit Maine. We have never been! Coastal Maine looks beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Louise,

    What beautiful and peaceful pics of Maine! I too have never visited Maine but it sure looks like keeper!
    I love the pics of the scenery as well as the ageless beauties of Chebeague!
    Thank you for this post! It was enjoyable!

  3. Oh Lou, love these photos and I certainly escaped in its beauty with the scenery and lovely ladies....I'll never forget our wonderful girl getaway to Chebeague. Most friendly place I've ever been...everyone waves and offers rides, no matter where you are. No worries. Sand, warmth & pick up trucks...heaven on earth.

  4. Chebeague really is a very friendly place. I forgot to say this. Friendliest place I have ever been actually. Glad you all enjoyed the pictorial. I enjoyed taking the pictures! XO
