When we decided to take a detour on our way to Maine by way of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, we knew we would need to make another stop before getting to our final destination.

After consulting our good friend, The Google, we honed in on the
Good Sunday morning to you!! I don’t even know where to begin sharing about our trip. Our time in Maine so far has been full but relaxing. For starters, we’ve taken the boat out on the lake, made s’mores, hiked Blue Hill Mountain, toured the picturesque town of Castine, and biked Schoodic Point.

This edition of Saturday Coffee Talk is being broadcast from the great state of Maine! Warning: you are about to be bombarded by vacation pictures. You have been warned. I took this photo our first morning waking up at the lake. I took this with my Moto X that I’m testing as part of the #VZWBuzz program. Pretty impressive, yes? We’ve had quite an eventful trip already. It all started last Saturday when I was on my way to The Color Run and
