On the one hand I want to keep it a closely guarded secret. On the other hand I want everyone to be able to enjoy it. I’ll err on the side of inclusiveness. Here are some photos of our trip over to one of the loveliest parts of Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula.

First of all, we found Fred. Or, more accurately, Fred the Herring Gull found us. Chuck was napping in the car at the time. I believe Fred was so concerned that someone was not actively appreciating the scenery that he flew up onto the hood of the car and stared at Chuck in amazement!

I let Chuck and Fred commune and headed off with my camera and my Sassafras walking stick to find this beautiful sight.

Soon Fred was able to rouse Chuck and he (Chuck, not Fred) joined me as the waves crashed up against the rocks. Fred was totally right about the importance of enjoying the scenery!

Fred is one wise bird.

Chuck napping, why am I not surprised.

Hi Irene -
It really is even more beautiful in person!

Hi DMM -
Young, but wise - he is indeed!

Hi Gail -
We say that the way Isabella can sleep in any position at any given moment shows that she takes after her Uncle Chuck!

Gorgeous photos of your trip. I love the one of the boat in the moonlight - stunning. Looks like a really gorgeous part of the world. I am saving up for a holiday across the ocean... :)
