Sorry some things didn't work out for you, glad you had fun with the family.

Love the picture.

Oh wow. Sounds fun with a bit of not so nice.

I get SO sea sick.

Tales of Whimsy said...

What's in the water? I zoomed but can't tell.

Penny Watson said...

Hi Amber! The views at Acadia were gorgeous. Thankfully the fog lifted right before we left so we could see a few things.

Penny Watson said...

Hi, too. Both Natty and I got seasick, but she was worse. I felt so badly for her. Of course, as soon as we got off the boat, she was asking for ice cream!

Penny Watson said...'s just rocks! hee hee

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

Oh, hubby sails and I get so bloody seasick! As long as we're going downwind on a fast tack or whatever, I'm fine, but as soon as we wallow - blech.

I love the dead fish story. Sorry about the weather but I enamored of your family and your adventures.

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

Uggh, seasickness - I get it too! (Julia, my DH sails as well - same thing!) So, how many times did you have the best blueberry pie and clam chowder in Maine? LOL! I think I recognize that pic! Welcome back!

Penny Watson said...

Hi Julia! In addition to getting seasick, we got stuck in the fog and had to use the GPS to get back to the harbor. We couldn't see anything!

We were sort of expecting the fish to croak. He was in that downward spiral of death.

Penny Watson said...

Hi Julie! Blueberry pancakes, muffins, scones, crepes, etc etc. And I had lobster bisque and/or lobster rolls at every restaurant...hee hee!
