the press of my foot to the earth

you're going to think i'm totally crazy, since i just returned from my uitwaaien less than a week ago, but zoë had yesterday off and she needed one. so the two of us jumped in the car before the sun came up and i drove us back to acadia. i guess it's my new favorite place.































































































































































some things we saw: fog rising off rivers as we drove; pink granite and silver sky; chickadees and red squirrels; a beaver couple working hard on a dam at one end of jordan pond; germans on the summit of cadillac mountain.

i had to show her blue hill too, so we got coffee from the co-op and walked around the village and down to the water.





























































and finally we drove down to stonington, where we ditched the car and walked all over the town, running in to only three other humans (though we could see plenty of people in boats).
















































































and we met one enormous, battle-scarred, extremely friendly cat.

Oh, what a great day! At least one of my girls has never been to Acadia, I'm ashamed to say. Can I hire you for a tour when she's home next time?
