Where's TF?
« on: Tuesday February 12, 2019, 02:50:17 AM »
When DH and I retired from our good government jobs in 2008, the plan was to sell our house and move.  Unfortunately for us, 2008 saw the housing market go belly-up.  There was no way we could sell when housing prices were so low, so we bided our time and found that northern Virginia wasn't so bad when one was retired and could go places during the day.  But in the back of our minds, we knew home prices would go up again and moving was still the goal.

In 2013 things were looking much better, and we spent the next year getting our home of more than two decades ready to sell.  In August of 2014 we put up the For Sale sign, eleven days later we had a buyer.  We closed in late September.

And where did we move?  Home for us became a little rural spot in central Maine, where the winters last six months and the summers are to die for.

One of my happy places in my new state, Pemaquid Point Light, roughly an hour's drive from our home.

Wow, that's lovely!
I'm more confused than a mood ring on a paranoid bipolar schizophrenic chameleon in a bag of skittles!

Isn't it?  Very indicative of the bulk of our coast.  I love the rocks.
