Signs and Surfboards

Love sign from Maine

 While visiting family members in Maine one summer, I remember seeing these blue letters and thinking this would be wonderful for Monday's memes. Have you been to Maine? It is very charming and magical, surrounded by lots of blue water. Photos for  Blue Monday

Our daughter has been enjoying her career over the years with props for movies and commercials being filmed in the San Francisco area. Awhile back she was working on a film in Santa Cruz with a story about a local surfer. The above photos show the surfboard props used in the film, Chasing Mavericks, which will be aired 10/26.

  1. Yes, I was in Maine one summer for a too-brief visit; however, I did get to enjoy some lobster! Thanks for sharing your beautiful blues. I look forward to your comment on my blog.

    Happy Blue Monday, D.

  3. I have never been to Maine but when I see photos on everyone's blog of Maine...I think I would love it...until winter that is...can't tolerate the makes me cry.

  4. Your daughter seems to have an interesting job! That certainly is a colourful surfboard too. I have been to SF, which I loved, but haven't been to Maine. I believe it is very beautiful. One day I hope to visit the US again and will try to get there. Thank you for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday.

  5. very nice place to visit! I like the quote from C.S. Lewis.
