Our Word View – Word of the Week = QUAINT

SUNDAY POSTING ~ A COLLABORATIVE BLOG BETWEEN TWO FRIENDS (ME AND MY FRIEND BARB) WHO’S PATHS WERE SEPARATED FOR 20+ YEARS AND HAVE FOUND ONE ANOTHER ONCE AGAIN ONLINE. BOTH SHARE A LOVE OF THE OCEAN, NATURE, FAMILY, PETS AND OF COURSE PHOTOGRAPHY! A FONDNESS FOR INSPIRATIONAL SAYINGS HAS SPARKED THIS PROJECT. EACH SUNDAY WE WILL POST THE “WORD OF THE WEEK” AND OUR INDIVIDUAL INTERPRETATION OF THE WORD VIA TWO SEPARATE PHOTOS ON OUR BLOG “OUR WORD VIEW”!

If you want to see the very definition of the word “QUAINT” then you need to take a trip to Paris Hill, Maine. It feels like you are driving to the middle of nowhere. Up a slow, meandering hill and boom, there it is, a town full of many large old, beautiful historic and quaint New England homes. The houses are centered on a green space, which is a large open field smack dab in the middle of a square of homes. And of course you have the town church. Behind a row of the homes the hill drops off to open up a vista of mountains that is unequaled. The town might be quaint but it’s also outstanding in its beauty!

Oh and I forgot to mention that each year the town has an incredible antique car show. http://www.hamlin.lib.me.us/founders_day.html
