Vacation Update

We are 5 days into our vacation and having a fun time. We arrived in Bangor late Wed. afternoon and chilled out for the evening. On Thursday morning we walked around downtown Bangor. That afternoon DH took a nap while I took myself on a little shop hop (more about that in another post). Thursday night DH and I went to dinner at Longhorn Restaurant. On DH's suggestion we ordered dessert first - a wonderful Golden Nugget Fried Cheesecake sundae. It was a great way to start dinner. We've decided to make it a tradition on our vacation to have dessert first for at least one meal.
Friday was our trip to Bar Harbor, ME to have a late breakfast with an on-line quilt friend of mine, Maggie. I've known her for four years and even though we only live three hours apart and she comes to NH at least once a year, we've never met. She brought me a bag of goodies that included two Australian magazines, a needlework book, a Redwork pattern, and a package of charm squares.
I made her this couch companion and included two FQs and some chocolates.
The weather was still cloudy and gloomy at Bar Harbor.
I took a couple of photos of boats in the harbor.
I love this photo. I'm thinking I may enlarge it and hang it up somewhere.
Today we are off to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of some friends and then on to Saint John, NB.

I hope everyone had a great July 4th and/or a lovely weekend.

Sweet P

I like the picture as well - kind of has an air of mystery about it. Hope you have a wonderful remainder of the trip - and lots of yummy desserts.

I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip. That is neat meeting a friend in person. The dessert looks great.

Sounds like a great vacation, dessert first and meeting a new friend! I love that picture to Paula. So mystical with the ship in the mist.
I'm way jealous. Bar Harbor is so on my list of place to visit. Glad you're having a wonderful time!
