Hike to Sunsweep Sculpture
June 18, 2016 After we finished our tour of Roosevelt's summer home, we drove over a beautiful carriage road to the other side of the island and enjoyed the view of the Wolves - a string of little islands. Then we went on a beautiful hike to the Sunsweep Sc...

Cindy, I stop wearing jackets at a chill factor of about 50. We have had highs in the 50 - 60s until this past weekend, when it reached the 70s. Today was supposed to hit 80 but, in way DownEast, it is always a little colder. We were all freezing in our shorts and short sleeved shirts on Campobello Island last Saturday afternoon.
School finally finished up last week for the children of Washington County. As in all the schools I've been involved with, the children get to to on field trips. We had 60 children from our nearby town of Calais come to the...

Wonder Trail and Other Wonders
Friday, June 3, 2016 On Thursday evening, I  had noticed several parked cars at
sign for Wonder Land Hike which seemed to go out to the coast.
It was after sunset by the time I came back by the site on the way
home, so I decided to explore the west side of...

Bubble Rock Hik
June 4, 2016 I heard that one of the more
interesting hikes at Acadia was the Bubble Rock Hike. So, after I
got back from the Pelagic Trip and ate an omelet for brunch, I
decided to do this hike on the Eastern Part of Acadia, before heading
to my campsite ...

Moose Cove Birding HikeII
My blogging is getting put on the back burner, both because I'm working a LOT - I was cleaning the bunkhouse and doing woodcock surveys around other work - and also moving from the Fire House to my own trailer, which I'm sure I'll like much better, now that...

A Foggy Pelagic Trip
June 4, 2016 I had a pelagic trip on my bucket list,
so signed up for one at the Acadia Bird Festival. The weatherman had
suggested that we would start with fog, but it would clear. I got up
at 4:20 to get ready and then drove for about forty minutes to g...

First Visit to Acadia
May 14, 2016 One of the top things to do on my Maine
bucket list is to visit Acadia several times. So soon after I arrived, I looked up the
fees to go there and discovered I couldn't get a campsite until the
end of May. In fact, most of the park is shut u...

Our weather has been very spring like –
warmer with showers. Of course it mostly rains on weekends which is
when I'm off. So, if it rains, I don't want to spend my gas money for
nothing, so I usually plan to work. Spring is getting exuberant Last Friday it ...

I get my hair cut by April Holland. I have fine, thin hair that shows every mistake and is about the hardest to make look good. April has both cut it to look good AND to last between cuts. The only other really excellent hair dresser I've found in fifty plus years of searching, has won International Styling Competitions and works in Houston, Texas. I got a reference from a lady I met when I first got to North Carolina who had really beautiful hair in a stunning haircut. April is also very reasonable. So if you want a beautiful cut that lasts and doesn't break the bank, rush to make an appointment.

This is a very down to earth retail fish place with awesome meals. Even if you are gluten free, you can find some really good food. Of course their seafood mostly spent yesterday in the ocean, and their other foods also taste really fresh. The food is prepared with passion. And their prices won't break your bank.

I was amazed at this company's professionalism starting with my first conversation with them on the phone. They gave me a rough estimate before examining my car, which needed its 100,000 mile checkup. Then they called back without me having to check on it with the estimate. The car was finished in a timely fashion, by the time they promised and the bill was LESS than the estimate. It has factory parts and a 12 month warranty. And all the people I talked to there were superfriendly. I believe that this is a place I can continue to go to with confidence of getting only needed repairs at a great price.

These guys showed up fast and use their heads to work through problems getting my door opened. Got me back on the road in no time after I locked my keys in the car.

I went there with a large group of people - who were all ordering separately. We had excellent service, and everyone of the six of us at my table ordered something different. Everyone was highly delighted with their orders which ranged to meatloaf through Cajun food, to OBX seafood. Our service was also excellent and timely, even though there was a large crowd there at the time. I can't wait to go back. Oh yes, the prices were moderate.

I had a flat tire and tore up my tire. The man who helped me change it tightened the lug nuts too tight and striped two of them. Dino Lube sold me a new tire - and NOT at an outrageous price - and ordered in my new lug nuts. They finished the job two hours before they said they would have it done. They seem to both know how to fix vehicles AND have good customer service.

I've used them several times and they are courteous, friendly, and fast. The staff seems knowledgeable. They also have cold water for the customers which I've appreciated.
