As some relish the thought of winter time fun, enhanced by a good ole February Nor'easter burying parts of Maine even as I post, other people rely on visual stimuli, and just about any other distraction to get them through the blah grips of a Maine winter.

It's for the latter audience that I offer a few glimpses of spring and summer I captured in Coastal Maine last year. Perhaps some of these images will bring a moment of comfort and warm memories to distract you from your symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.
