Let’s see who get’s it. I will be on spring break next week – well let me clarify that – the kids will be on spring break next week and I will be joining them. DH cannot come with me so watch out world here she comes! Then again, how much mischief can I get into when I will be with a 13, 11 and 4month old?
On second thought don’t answer that 😉
These photos were taken with my mobile phone after having a nice dinner and some drinks at the Bar Harbor Beerworks on Main Street. The duck confit tacos I had were amazing (yes I know, not your classic taco but I was enjoying them so much a table next to us asked what I was eating and proceeded to order the same) but the blueberry soda was too too sweet for me. It was like drinking a melted Popsicle.
Now at another drinking establishment a few doors down there was this “scientific” sign which answers a question not sure that was asked 🙂 Be careful out there today if celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Those green drinks can get to you if you aren’t careful.
I can only imagine how beautiful the Acadian night sky is because we always rose very early to beat crowds; by the evening it was dinner and done for the day! To learn a little more about this historic theater – such as the theater’s founder being a convicted bootlegger who went legit after serving his time in federal prison – read here.
As you can see from this shot, Main Street in Bar Harbor ends at the harbor where you can walk in the park that is directly across from the shops here or take a boat ride out to some of the other islands from the harbor. It was still very early when this photo was taken otherwise it would’ve been crammed with workers and tourists. It was very peaceful that morning.
Bah Habah if you are so inclined to say it that way. Bar Harbor, Maine a town on Mount Desert Island in Maine is where it is said that you can see the sun rise first in all of the United States. I was going to go down to the harbor to take a sunrise photo anyway – the other best option was from the top of Cadillac Mountain but I knew my chances of actually getting there and getting a spot were better at the harbor – the first sunrise bit just gave me the will to get up so very early.
It was worth getting up early for and a great start for my return to Maine series. Picking up where I left off last… again.
This weekend has been very busy around Casa de Dashfield. DH celebrated another trip around the sun which we celebrated by taking him out to dinner at his favorite restaurant and surprising him with a birthday cake – and no fire trucks had to be summoned to extinguish the flames from the candles 🙂 I think I had more of a headache from eating too much sweets (which I normally don’t do) than from the martini when celebrating with DH.Then there was his mom’s birthday and daylight savings times has everyone looking at their clocks and watches wondering if they reset themselves or what.
Those moments and the fact that next week I will be back home visiting the now almost four month old were the happy times. While I thought I had gotten used to it, today started off with some melancholy as it is my mother’s birthday. She has been gone now for six years but every once in awhile I feel the loss. Circle of life and all that stuff… sigh. I will be back tomorrow with a return to our trip last September that took us to Maine.
Cya tomorrow 🙂
