Just exquisite! So many people up there to take photos of it. I can see why... We took mom along for the week, made a few stops on the way to the cottage/house we were renting.It's sad to see the economy is hitting everyone. We happened to see this couple on the streets of Belfast... very picturesque town, but still, not for these two. At least they have each other.
This is a shot I took (my favorite) of the boats at the dock across the street from our cottage- at the ferry dock. I loved the flowers in the window boxes at the 'Gallery" across the street- the view of the harbor isn't bad either.This purple flower is amazing! I loved it... And the purple iris are some that the neighbor thinned out of her garden to send home with me. (I owe her my Rootbeer colored ones).This is a section on Park Road, in Bar Harbor (Acadia National Park), close to Thunder Hole ( which wasn't cooperating that day. Sounded more like a truck driving on a wet road, rather than thunder). It was like a field of Easter eggs. Must be the bunny's stash! This is a cute little place (notice the 'for rent' sign on the side of the cottage?) on the water... in Pretty Marsh area.Must show you a lighthouse, of course. This is Bass Harbor Lighthouse. A Coast Guard family lives there and operates it.
Oh, yeah.... the fabric. Well, I went to Marden's and got a yard of this and a yard of that... some for me and some for the quilters at church and even some for the Project Linus crew at church. All in all, I walked out of there with just shy of $200 worth of fabric. NO. If I had to buy it at home, it would have cost me 3-5 times that amount. So it was worth it.( I'll try and post photos of the fabric tomorrow after our church quilter's mtg.) Only problem I saw was that I bought it on Tues and then couldn't 'play' with it all the time I was up there. No scissors, no sewing machine... hmmmm.... maybe next year. ( I know I'd better be REALLY good all year after that trip!)
