With company over the past week, it’s been hard to find time to post. So, you get two-in-one today! Jim and I hiked part way up Beech Mountain last night to try and catch the sunset. The trail that winds up the mountain high… Continue Reading “Photo a Day 7.28.21”

Yesterday, I just never got enough of a signal to upload a photo. Tonight, no problem – and it’s drizzling and heavy with fog! It’s a mystery! I had some errands to accomplish in Bar Harbor today, so I took a stroll along the… Continue Reading “Photo a Day 7.14.21”
