Vacationland

Just a few (I promise!) pictures from our vacation. Dean and Ken on the cliff walk trail at Portland Head Light.

Mr. Silly tries on the goods at Acadia National Park.

My own Forest Gnome heads off on a trail at Acadia; I love that he just blends right in. Of course, the fact that he talked and sang pretty much the entire time we hiked meant that while he visually blended in, the forest had no doubt that we were there.


Up, up, up to Connor's Nubble .


Taking the top! The best hiking we've done, with views to make all the effort worthwhile.
Ken and Dean at Jordan Pond (still Acadia), with the two points , behind them, to which we climbed -- Connor's Nubble and North Bubble.Ken and Dean test the water on Crescent Beach in Cape Elizabeth. We go early in the season to have all these places nearly to ourselves.

I'll leave it at that (nothing worse than being subjected to too many of someone's vacation snaps) and confess to you that should we ever win the lottery, we'd buy a small place up there in Maine so that experiences like these could come more than over the course of just a hand full of days each year.
