The little white thing is a cruise ship.
Hi, All --

Here are some photos taken from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, the highest point on the Atlantic Coast of the US and the first place touched by the sun each day in our country.

On this trip we've been on the top three times to watch the sunset. In past trips, we've also watched the sun come up and seen the stars late at night.

As sunset draws near, we've found that you have to find a spot where you can see the horizon -- so you can see the sun go down -- and then stick to that spot with a degree of firmness. And if you look around, you see determined looking people standing in little bunches on rocks with horizon views with their camera on the ready. It's well worth the effort.

Tomorrow we're off to Quebec City.

Take care,

Paula & Bob
