A couple of Volkswagens left out a little too long by the ocean
Got back from Maine late Saturday. I have a ton of pictures but haven't had time to download them from the camera. The picture above I snapped with my Blackberry. I'll get my Volkswagen Beetle someday; these just weren't quite right for some reason.
I spent all day yesterday doing laundry, as well as some grocery shopping. The lawn needs to be mowed but I haven't been able to motivate myself to do it.
The vacation was great! We stayed at the same place that we did last year. And even booked it again for next. We love it up there. If it wasn't so far (5 hour drive), I'd seriously consider getting a vacation home in the area.
Speaking of vacation homes, on the way back we stopped in the Ogunquit area. There is a new seasonal-cottage development that we'd been meaning to see so we figured we'd stop in for a tour. Beautiful place. Cute little cottages with great amenities including a club house, several pools, workout room and much more. We were tempted to do it. It's not too far from downtown Ogunquit and would only be about an hour drive from home. It's a completely different area than Bar Harbor much more developed but still beautiful. I don't know. We probably won't buy, right now anyway, but it was still fun to look.
We had some great Mount Desert excursions. We learned all about George B. Dorr, the father of Acadia. We went on a couple of boat trips: saw a bald eagle and seals playing in the harbor. And of course plenty of hiking. The hardest was Mount Dorr which Bandit loved. Though afterward he was exhausted (as were we).
Vacation may be over but traveling is not. I have a GLBTA conference in upstate New York this week. I'll be leaving Wednesday and back on Friday. Then for Thanksgiving it's down to Florida to see my mother. After that nothing till April - which sees us in Florida again but this time for a Harry Potter visit to Universal studios and then to the west coast of Florida to visit Chris' family.
Now that I'm back I promise to visit my favorite blogs. While we had Internet access up there (the owner recently put in free wireless), we kept computer usage to a minimum.
Over and out...
P.S. Bandit says hello! Oh and wants to remind you that Wednesday is my birthday.
