Yesterday brought a bit of relief from the howling winter winds and bitter cold. We took advantage of the "balmy" temperature of almost 30 degrees and headed out to the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park to get a bit of fresh air and exercise.
A slightly misty atmosphere and light snow gave an ethereal look to the landscape. Walking carefully to avoid slick spots in the road, we managed to renew our winter weary souls with the stark beauty of our rocky Maine coast - it is exhilarating and breathtaking in any season!
We were the only ones out there and felt we had the whole park to ourselves. We are so blessed to be surrounded by this bit of serenity. The howling winds return tomorrow, but today is food for the soul!
