1 Moosehead Lake is a super special place! It's the largest lake in Maine- 40 miles long! And just 3 hours south of Quebec Canada!
2 But the specialist part about it is that my mama- Dr. Pia- spent every summer there until she was about 25... that's even older in dog years!
3 This was mom's first time back on Moosehead Lake since then!
I even got to see her drive a boat...
4 It was super windy on the boat! But it was fun too!
5 Mom's family went to a place called Sandbar Island every summer- and she says she just loved, loved, loved it!
6 There is a mountain on the lake- it's called Kineo and mom said her family would look out at it and watch the sun set every night!
7 Here's a snap of me with Mt. Kineo behind me- just above my nose... see it?
8 It seemed like this place was really important to my mom- sometimes I couldn't tell if she was happy or sad... maybe she was both...
9 I'm really glad I was able to be there for my mom... to offer moral support and a super soft- but strong- shoulder to lean on!
10 Mom always brought her cat Seymour up to Maine. Here they are on the front porch when Dr. Pia was little... kinda like me...
11 On our visit to Sandbar Island, mom and I took a matching picture of the two of us... Not sure why but, I like this one better...
12 Mom said she always dreamed of bringing her own kids and family to Sandbar one day- so she thanked me for helping to make that happen...
13 I'd go anywhere with my mom- and I'd do anything for her! After all, she adopted me and we're family!
14 I could tell mom was having lots of fond memories of her summer's on Moosehead Lake!
15 I tried to imagine my mom as a kid- running around taking care of all the local creatures! She was really little- like me. Actually, she still is. Mom and me are really similar in lots of ways!
16 Sandbar Island is super special- There is so much to do and explore!
17 I can see why mom loved spending summers on Moosehead. I'll tell you more about our adventures next week!
