In Maui

You can see posts are fewer and farther apart. After 26 hrs of awake time, we landed and made our way to the condo. I have to say the renovation job has had its challenges. The wrong tile was ordered and the soap niche was completely undersized. Fortunately we have the issues resolved and should be on our way by Monday.

A Day in Bar Harbor

Acadia Park

Yesterday was a rain day so we stayed close to home. We walked to a little beach to look for sea glass and then to Cellardoor Winery for a tasting. It’s a goal to try the wines from every state and country we visit.
Today was a beautiful day so we headed off to Acadia Nat’l Park and Bar Harbor. It’s our last day so we had to eat our last lobster.

Then we drove the scenic loop of the park to Otter Point. The views and fall colors are spectacular.

Camden, ME

Redo

So for those of you who read this earlier...there was a little technical issue.
Here is the quick recap:
Went to an art festival in Camden, then to the top of Camden Hill State Park for beautiful views and fall colors, then to Rockland for a killer lobster roll. It was a fun day.

Greta’s Birthday Trip

Departure from Durango

My trip begins a day early as the flights out of Durango tomorrow were full. I’m heading up to Denver to spend the night and then off to Chicago and then to Brussels. We are celebrating Greta’s 50th Birthday
As some added excitement, we became foster parents to a dog named Maxx. He is an 8 yr old, shepherd mix who is waiting to be adopted from the humane society. He’s keeping Greg company while I’m gone.

Back in the USA

June 6

We are back on American soil but we both felt we could have stayed longer, but are looking forward to getting home to plant our garden and work on projects.
Our last night in Lisbon was interesting. The bike company dropped us off at our Airbnb. We were in a good area...if you were 20-something and wanted to party all night. The place itself started out for Greg and I and the host said it was no problem to add more people. Let me just say the living room was wall to wall beds. It was fine for 1 night. Surprisingly, that was our only unpleasant surprise in the whole trip and it really wasn’t that bad so the trip is considered a success!
On the flight home we both got business class so a great way to cap off the journey. Now we are headed to Cape Cod for a few days to see Mark & Pam.
