This seemed an appropriate shot for my last full day here. It has been a good trip though, as always, it will be good to get home. There is a feel to New England as well as to being on the water that I wish I could bottle and keep for dosing as needed to regain perspective. I'll have to work on that.

This was the view from the window this morning. Today's agenda is open, the lobster boat sail we thought of taking being fully booked probably by passengers from the several cruise ships we saw docked at Bar Harbor yesterday. There are worse things in life, though, than being in a beautiful location with long-time and cherished friends.

We took a train ride today after church and ice cream for lunch (mine was Maine maple walnut). Along the way we saw multiple dogs being walked, a beaver dam, birds' nests, and more tan a bit of fall foliage. We also performed a wye turn, which you are welcome to look up in Wikipedia for a complete description. Hey! That's what we did thanks to our smart aleck phones.
Having learned a bit about how the photos move between SD card, phone, and tablet, the photo above is the one I want to use, not the first one I could randomly get to load. We hiked in the mist yesterday; this was our view of the harbor below as we descended. While the yacht in the background might be nice to have, I think I'd rather have the blue sailboat in the foreground.

If the gods had wanted me to know what I was doing, they would have made it evident. This photo is not from today's hike which was in fog and drizzle and which featured an incredible garden. Hiking was followed by lobster spaghetti carbonara for dinner, with good wine, good company, and much laughter. Life as I know it is pretty darn good right now.
Once again there is magic involved to which I am not privy. Photos do not want to move from memory card to blog via the tablet, yet some seem to have made their way to the smart Alec phone and, from there, to the blog. This is a view from our hike the day before yesterday. We are hiking again this afternoon. What magic will the photos from that hike wield?

This post should be accompanied by a photo of the bald eagle that was breakfasting in the cove behind the house in which I am visiting. Unfortunately, Betsy the tablet and I are disagreeing on how said photo should be uploaded. Trust me. There was a bald eagle, and I do have a photo to prove it.
