a very rainy day

It was a good day, but oh, so rainy!

Denise and I started our day with a walk at Schooner Head. The clouds were low and there was a bit of fog too. We couldn't even see a line of horizon where the ocean and sky meet; it seemed that both blended together. It was very beautiful!

After our walk we headed to the airport in Bangor to meet Denise's sister and her mom. We waited just a few minutes before they walked into the airport... it was time to head back towards Bar Harbor and Acadia. Our first stop was at the LL Bean Outlet store in Ellsworth to see if we needed anything. It was a good thing that we stopped because Suze & Sherry both found rain jackets - and they really needed them today! The jackets got a good work out since shortly after that the rain switched from an off and on to a very steady all day type of wet. (I have to admit I stayed dry in the camera bag; I could have jumped into a pocket in Denise's jacket but I was pretty cozy where I was!)

Lunch at the Jordan Pond House was soup and yummy popovers. Afterwards we were going to walk on Sand Beach and stop at Thunder Hole but the cold rain changed our minds. We'll try again tomorrow!

It was a good visiting day, a good start to our long weekend in Acadia.
