Giddy's Most Excellent Day Off

Wednesdays are my day off from work and it's always a struggle to decide whether to stay home and do something around the house or pack up the backpack and head over to Acadia for a hike.
Today loomed gloomy and foggy, but since we had not had the opportunity to hike in a while, we decided to pack all our troubles in the old kit bag and hike, hike, hike! We hit our favorite trail, which runs along a normally cute little creek and we generally stop for a picnic along the trail, at a spot on the water, next to the trail. This is a picture of our "spot" in mid September:

This is the same spot today after 2 inches of rain on Monday!

Needless to say, we did not stop for a snack! After our hike, we stopped by a favorite watering hole in Bar Harbor and had a lovely lunch overlooking the harbor. On our way back home, we stopped by Home Depot to pick up a couple of sconces for our bedroom. Our bedroom is quite small, so we look for anything we can to make room on our end tables.

You really are way up north! Lucky you to be so close to be able to pack up and hike there! Oh bliss :)
We've finally had some lovely weather too after all our rain. It's given us the opportunity to get a lot of cleaning up done outside. Thank heavens!
It'll be all gone by the weekend, so the forecast says. Back to brrr again!
