I don't have a lot to show for yesterday but that doesn't mean it was a bad day! Bill and Laurie had never hiked Beech Mountain so we hiked it with them yesterday. It's no officially our most-hiked mountain. It's a really good hike because it's not too long, had a lot of variety and has a few different trails that you can take. This time the trail that overlooks Long Pond was open so we got a view of the house where we stay. YOu can see that the weather wasn't great. It was forecast to be cloudy all day but it cleared up around 11 and was beautiful until about 4.
After lunch we picked up my newly-repaired car and I just drove around for about an hour, well, just because I could! The horrible noise is gone and the car handles much better. I had not even noticed the handling "problem". It wasn't that bad. But the noise was awful. Now my drive home will be more pleasant.
My body is a little sore from the hikes so today I'm glad that it's raining. For once the forecast was right! I've sewn the corners on all the blocks that I got cut out and will probably get them cut apart. I think I'll spend the rest of my time working on the crochet baby blanket. I have quite a lot more blue blocks to cut out when I get home.
We'll head into Bar Harbor the the mandatory shopping expedition so I can get a toy for my brother's annoying-but-cute little dog.
This may be my past postcard from vacation. We will get in another hike tomorrow before we had home Friday. I'll have book reviews tomorrow and next week will be giveaway week!
