Getting Ready

Things have been a little busy around here the last couple of days. We’ve been packing and getting ready for our annual autumn trip up to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park in Maine. We managed to get the cats up to their “Kitty Hotel”, despite some protestations and an unseasonably snowy nor’easter. With trees in still near full leaf, we feel lucky to have gotten only about an inch of heavy wet snow. Much more, and we would have been at risk of downed tree limbs and possible power outages. Happily, the weather forecast is much more pleasant as the week goes on.

We’re staying at a different hotel from the ones we stayed at on the last two trips. In addition to hoping it’s clean, quiet and comfortable, I’ve got my fingers crossed the internet access is swift and reliable. If so, I’ll be able to post pics as we go along. Because we are such creatures of habit you can get a feel for what we hope to be doing this week by clicking here for October 22 - 27, 2008 and here for October 15 - 26, 2007!

I'm jealous too, I'm betting the treepeeping is going to be stunning. Fingers and toes crossed you can access the interwebs.

Hi All -
Thanks for the good wishes!
I'm hoping the weather holds and we can still find some good foliage. But even in rain and fog this area is beautiful!
