During high tide, especially with rough weather, water rushes up this canal and makes a sound like thunder. We saw better than this last year & the year before.
Hi, Friends --

I thought I'd begin our fall trip blogs with photos of Acadia National Park on the coast of northern Maine. We've been here for a full week which is quite a long time for us as we usually only stay in a particular place for a couple of days. But then we did get married here on Saturday which took up a little time.

We've seen gorgeous, sunny days; rainy days like today; cold periods, in the 30's one night; and lots of wind. When we were on the top of Cadillac Mountain last night for the third night straight, it was blowing around 30 miles an hour with gusts a good bit higher. And we've loved every bit of it. When we got too cold, we head back to our cosy camper and our warm, fuzzy cats. Our camper was made in Canada so it's well insulated. And how many times in the past half year have we had a chance to get cosy in hot, humid Florida?

We've also been eating lots of lobster. Tonight we had our third lobster dinner, a nice sized lobster with corn on the cob, for $12.50. That's hard to beat. Apparently there is a glut of lobsters this year.

The cat in the last photo is a Bengal. His owner came walking by our camper with this cat on a leash as we were walking our cats -- which we scurried into our camper in a hurry. He told us he paid $5000 for this cat and that it will soon weigh around 30 pounds. And it occasionally bites and claws him and his wife if they're not careful. I love cats and this is a gorgeous animal. But to pay $5000 for a pet that mauls you when you irritate it?

If you're new to these blogs, here's a tip. You can double click on any photo and it will change to full size. Then you can move forward or backward by clicking on the arrows on the side of each photo.

The next blog will be of twilight and sunset photos from the top of Cadallic Mountain. Hope you like sunsets.
