Celia Thaxter’s Garden

The big day arrives! After planning this trip for years and getting reservations in the spring, we hopped on a boat to visit Celia Thaxter’s Garden on Appledore Island. After a tour of the Shoals Marine Laboratory, we wandered the gardens, had lunch and enjoyed all the beauty.

I sensed from mom’s expression on the boat ride back that she enjoyed every minute.
