Day 7

First of all, the flowers we have found all over Maine in a variety of colors are Beach Roses, so we were told.  And the berry on them is used in Rose Hips, etc.

We did not get to do the whale watch today due to high winds.  So, instead we did some other sight seeing this afternoon and spotted a couple of small lighthouses and just enjoyed the beautiful afternoon.

Tomorrow we begin our approx. 20-hour trip home.  We will travel 10 hours tomorrow and 10 hours on Tuesday.  Depending on how Tim feels at the end of the trip, we may travel to WV after we drop Tim's mom off.  If we do, we will spend the night with Liz before traveling on to NC on Wednesday.

I asked Tim's mom if she has enjoyed herself this week.  She said, "Oh, yes!  It has been a dream come true!"  So, that's all that matters!  :D

I've had a sinus headache all day, so I'm calling it a night!  Nite!

Today was a beautiful day.  Much cooler and breezier.  So, here is the view we missed from Cadillac Mountain because of the fog yesterday.  The white spot in the distance is a cruise ship.  And that is Bar Harbor to the left of the cruise ship.

Here's one of the small lighthouses we found today.  I uploaded the wrong picture, so it is hard to see the lighthouse on the left against the backdrop of trees. But I think you can tell that it is not as high as the 2nd story roof on the house.

LOVE capturing the power of the ocean and the beauty of the waves crashing onto the rocks.

It is amazing to find this scene among the rocks along the shore.  I bent down to take the picture of the flower and the bee zoomed right in there like he didn't want me taking the picture without him!

Here's the other lighthouse we found.  You can't tell it from this angle, and I zoomed in from across the bay to get this picture.  But when we drove around to get a closer look, it was a Naval lighthouse and you could not get to it for a fence that had barbed wire twisted all along the top of it.
