as promised, all these eons ago:
Here are my people on the first day of vacation: Miss M. out front, Sir I., Grampa, David with the Baron in the backpack. They all look chipper because they *think* they’re going on a “very easy” one-mile walk. In reality, they’re doing the “moderate” 3.2 mile loop around Jordan Pond (the one they were going to be careful not to do!) . But that’s okay. They don’t know that yet.
Look! An interesting dead tree by the side of the pond. One or both of the mountains in the background is called Bubble:
Can’t go to Maine and not visit a lighthouse. Here’s the view from the Bass Harbor Light at the southernmost tip of the island. Nice day for a sail. 🙂
Look! Something shining comes from the west.
We saw these beach roses all over the place:
