But this morning!!! Too beautiful in a misty cool way-took the dogs out first thing and there was the sound, mist drifting over, sun coming up behind the mountains across from us, clouds, reflections, one or two anchored boats-almost saccharine in its beauty if it wasn't somehow hardy and New Englandish. I think I'll have to move here.
Off for a day of hiking around Acadia.

...is unbelievable, still, even as I sit here anticipating windswept storms, no power, no facilities, just battening down the hatches and getting through it. My 3 companions are napping, soft music is playing, crocheting awaits. Life IS good.

Arrived here around 4:00 PM so we made excellent time considering we left home at 4:30 AM and stopped about 4 times. Long drive, but worth it just to see the changing leaves and view here. It's mysteriously foggy, which creates a wonderful backdrop for the sound and the mountains and trees. Our temp landlord tells us that Somes Sound is actually a fjord - will have to research that.
Although.....quiet might not be what happens over the next few days - someone said there's a hurricane or at the very least a nor'easter headed this way? Gack.

Finished the baby afghan for Michelle's shower last Sat which I alas was not able to attend, but it came out pretty good. Also the goony-looking amigurumi penguin. Love that little bugger!bunny now and want to do the elephant, turtle and octopus. The baby is now due 11/1; still don't know what it will be except adorable!
