Summer Travels ~ Bar Harbor, Maine

Though we travel the world to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.  ~ ralph waldo emmerson

We've visited Bar Harbor, Maine almost every summer for the last 22 years, beginning with an overnight stay during our honeymoon.  I am charmed every time and the trip truly feels like marking the beginning of summer! This year we stayed over in Bangor on Friday night to attend a concert on the river at the Waterfront Pavillion.  It was a beautifully warm and sunny evening with hundred of fans cheering on the warm up bands and then singing along to the familiar songs of Rascal Flatts -- they were fantastic!

Saturday morning dawned bright and we headed to the shore.  We spent the day wandering through the local shops and galleries, doing a bit of shopping and enjoying all the gorgeous handmade creations.  Lobster rolls for lunch, a stroll along the wharf and waterfront and a delicious dinner at Galyn's completed the day.  Happy Anniversary, love! xo


  1. Looks lovely; a fine tradition! I did the "opoosite" this past weekend; went to nearby BC. Float plane from the lake very near my house in Seattle to Victoria and then ferried with a friend to Salt Spring Island, where I've never been..and met some dyers and fiber artists and felters..and enjoyed our summer which has popped up this week.

  2. hi ginny! thanks for dropping by-- your visit to BC sounds like an adventure and a creative retreat as well! hope you had a fabulous time :)
