Sunday and Monday were absolutely beautiful here. Chris and Win wen fishing Sunday so Ian and I tackled Saint Sauveur and Acadia Mountains. Both of these are relative short at about 680 feet but the hikes are quite steep. We attempted this the first year we came but cut our hike short after the scramble on Acadia. This time I was able to do both. The views are incredible on both of these hikes and we discovered that going counter-clockwise was better than going clockwise.
This photo is from the top of Acadia looking over Somes Sound and the ocean beyond.
Today (Wednesday) is quite misty and overcast. It rained pretty heavy last night so there will be no hiking. We are hoping for some kayaking time this afternoon/evening but we are headed into Bar Harbor for lunch. Actually I'm leaving the boys at a pub and will walk around the shops for a while.
On previous trips we have noticed a lot of hummingbirds around so this year we brought along a feeder. We've been very entertained by the bird fights over the feeder. Eventually they get tired enough that they will all come in to feed together.
I can watch the lake and the feeder while I'm sewing and listening to my book. This morning I got the sawtooth spikes added to the center of my star. Next up is more color planning and cutting the next sections to sew. So far I'm loving the quilt and really enjoying sewing it.
The star doesn't get sewn together until the very end so these will be put away until all of the blocks are done.
Onward to the next section!
