Maine trip...part 2

We took our traditional canoe trip on Long Pond. We saw at least 2 loons and one of them called with its eerie call-- it was VERY loud, I've never heard one call so close by before. We also saw two bald eagles, one possibly with a fledgling. We'd never seen bald eagles at Long Pond before.



The light was really beautiful that day.



We picked some particularly wonderful blueberries just above Linda & Richard's house.


And made blueberry sauce for pancakes...yum!



We hiked up Cadillac Mountain for Eric's birthday, which we always do if we are on MDI on that day. It was incredibly windy. I only hiked up & then pooped out, Eric hiked back down and got the car to come pick me up while I sat around and ate chocolate (hey! it's good for pregnant women!).

The last picture serves as evidence that I am not as good as my wife at using the timer thingy on the camera to take our picture-- usually she does this, and with great skill. But this time, there was a bit too much scrambling-over-rocks involved, so I had to set the camera up, activate the timer, run back and pose. Not too bad for a rookie, but it is rather crooked....

actually, i kinda like the crazy tilty-ness of the photo. I don't quite get why *we* are all tilted too...but figuring it out would require thinking about physics or something. and that' too taxing at the moment....
