Saturday we woke to this view and, frankly, had low expectations for the weather that day. The forecast was for clouds and some rain showers.
Bill and Laurie were schedule to arrive in the afternoon with the rain so we decided to get in a little paddling while we could. Chris fished and I kayaked around for about an hour.
I checked out one of my favorite areas with lots of grasses. I love paddling around in here and the sound of the grasses on the hull.
Around in another cove I found this little Mallard family.
After we came in we were surprised by clearing clouds and bright sun. We headed straight for the lake for some floating and sunning. The day turned absolutely beautiful and out friends, Bill and Laurie, arrived around 3. They are college friends of Chris' so I'm vastly outnumbered by Wahoos.
We did get some rain around dinner time and then had the most spectacular rainbow! You can see a very faint second one to the right.
It was a good ending to a good day.
In the afternoon Saturday I got another set of blocks marked for sewing and started some stitching on Sunday.
Yesterday was another day that was forecast to be cloudy with rain showers. Wrong again!
We got out early to get a parking space at Jordan Pond so we could hike Pemetic Mountain. It's probably my favorite hike in the park. It's about 4 miles with lots of steep climbs and a steep descent over a rock slide but it ends with a nice gentle walk around beautiful Jordan Pond. The work of the hike is worth it for this view.
There's an interesting section of the hike where you are give a choice of paths.
This is part of the ravine. It was very wet from all of the recent rain.
We took the ledge which was challenge enough for us.
Today Chris and Bill have a charter fishing trip and Laurie and I may go kayaking and then drive over to Schoodic Point.
Tomorrow I get my car fixed! Yay!
Don't forget about the giveaways starting next week!
