We just got back from a week at Acadia National Park in Maine, where we biked the carriage roads:

Watched the sea:

Saw a deer with his antlers in velvet:

And took in a sunrise from the top of Cadillac Mountain (the place where the sun first touches the US every morning -- at 4:30!  Kudos for Dennis!)

We had a lovely time with friends, perfect weather, and managed to avert all disasters (which is quite a feat for us, since for a while the word vacation conjured up all kinds of images of car accidents, illnesses, injuries, floods, and multiple visits to ER's across the US and Canada.  I still tend to avoid the word "vacation" and think of them as business trips (writing is a business, right?  And inspiration is necessary for every writer, right?)  Anyway, the nearest we came to trouble this time was a missing kitty when we got home, but he turned up eventually full of cuddles, so all is good.

  1. Do you "camp" camp or do you rough it?

    Also, one of our cats tends to take a little while to show himself if we are gone too long....seems like he is "paying us back" for abandoning him! ;)
