things to do: Belfast Windjammer Festival 9/04/2010 - 09/11/10 04:22 AM
Living not far from the Town of Belfast, my wife Bonnie and I love to go there occsionally, just to enjoy the beautiful harbor.  This September 5th we got down there for a few hours to witness the Windjammer Festival.  There were vendors, displays, PIRATES, and of course, Windjammers.  It was a mild day (not too warm) and it was a pleasure strolling around viewing the festivities, and we even ran into some friends.

things to do: Schoodic Point, Acadia Park's Little Sister - 04/26/10 07:45 AM
There's a little known part of Acadia National Park at the tip of Schoodic Peninsula.  With dramatic views and loop road of its own, around every corner is another piece of pristine coastline.  This is what National Parks are there for.  My wife and I often go there on an extremely hot day because the ocean breezes are like sticking your head in the refrigerator.  Come on now, I know we've all done that on a hot day.  Anyway, the one way two lane road is a pleasurable ride with ample opportunities to stopand take pictures or explore.  At the southern … (0 comments)

things to do: Newberryneck on the Blue Hill Peninsula, A Peacefull Easy Bike Ride - 04/17/10 02:41 AM

things to do: Summer's Eve in Blue Hill, Maine - 04/01/10 02:34 AM
Summer on the Blue Hill Peninsula in Downeast Maine wouldn't be complete without walking to the Blue Hill Town Park and enjoying the music of the Flash in the Pans band.  This particular evening in July, my wife and I took in an art opening at the Blue Hill Wine Shop before strolling to the park where the evening light on the harbor was adding its own music to the atmosphere.  This out of the way New England town is steeped in culture on an old fashioned waterfront born of fishing and the shipping of granite from a quarry nearby.  In the summer … (0 comments)

things to do: Biking Acadia National Park's historic Carriage Trails - 01/29/10 01:28 AM
Even before moving to the Maine coast near Mount Desert Island, my wife and kids and I had already begun exploring the enchanting carriage Trails of Acadia National Park.  Even ten years after moving to the area and finding all the other great places to ride, we still return to the park regularly.  It's there for everyone to enjoy and we never tire of it.  See our photos below and check out the Park's own website
