Nature’s surprises

We went to a place called Schoodic Penninsula yesterday, which is a part of Acadia NP that is not on MDI (Mount Desert Island).  It was friggin beautiful and sparsely populated.  It’s my new favorite part of Acadia.  The link is to pictures of the place and the people I went with. The surprise came […]

The Crunch

These are my last days in Maine, and myself and my compatriates are all coming to the end of our contracts.  So we’ve been getting as much in as we can.  I’ve made some great friends here, and I’m super happy that I got to do this this summer.  Jen and Larrance rock, and Improvacadia […]

It’s fairly wild, and it has natural features with some elevation (up to 1400′ in some areas). It’s populated with a fair amount of groovy, hippy, artsy folks. I’ve chatted with a […]

Bar Harbor Diaries 7/7

Just got up. I’m a little down. I’ve got a bit of the ‘I miss home’ blues. My inbox is empty, and I feel a bit isolated here without a vehicle of my own to get around in. Although, I had my first hike and swim yesterday. We went to a place called Beech Mountain. […]
