Vacation in photos

I have at least three different posts I could write tonight. But it was a long day at work. And then traffic was ridiculous coming home. And I'm too tired to put in the thought and effort that the other posts deserve so what follows is my vacation in pictures.

I've been back from vacation for what feels like months now, but is really only about a week and a half. I spent a wonderful week on Mt. Desert Island in Maine with a couple friends. MDI is home to Acadia National Park and the little town of Bar Harbor. And it's one of my very favorite places. I feel at peace there; there's not much more to say about it than that.

These are only a few of the 700+ photos I took. Yes, I am that person. I totally own it.

YO HO! We started our trip by going to a lumberjack show. Timber Tina was a bit intimidating.

Playing on the rocks and looking back toward Sand Beach. I love this part of Acadia.

Time spent at Wonder Land is time well spent.

We were told of, and found, a very awesome cave. Mr. A shown for scale.

Inside the cave we saw sea anemones, crabs, snails and starfish. And I nearly slide down the rocks which would have caused me to get swept out with the tide. Or maybe just completely soaked.

This year we decided to see sunset on Cadillac Mountain instead of getting up for sunrise.

I put myself to the test this year.

I literally have nightmares about things like this.

But the view was totally worth the fear.

This is where we sat at night to watch the stars.

Until next time Bar Harbor, jazz hands!

Great photos. I've seen the lumberjacking on television but it must be way scarier in person!

It was really fun actually. You could tell a lot of it was scripted for the benefit of the little kids in the audience, but that kind of made it more fun.
