Friday was the last day we would play tour guide this summer. We met Glenn and Laureen at a local restaurant called 'Sips', just around the corner from their hotel, for breakfast around 10:30 am. I love spending time with Glenn and Laureen, because they, like us, just let the day come to them. We had no real specific, definite plans for the day other than to show them some of the highlights of the 'Quiet Side' of Mount Desert Island.....the west side.
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and then retrieved the VW having Glenn and Laureen follow us back to our home to drop off our car, and for me to resume my duties as chauffeur of their rental car. Our first stop of the day was at the Bass Harbor Head Light, which we last visited on our first, or second day back in mid May. It was quite stormy, and cloudy then, but on Friday it was quite sunny!
TLE and I split a Lobster BLT, and she added a cup of Lobster Stew, and I a cup of their wonderful potato salad. We talked away the afternoon, often remarking at what a relaxing, enjoyable day it had been.
By 4:30 pm we were on our way back to our home where a little single malt Scotch sampling was in order before we retired to the lido deck for an 'until next time' campfire. What a perfect way to end a very pleasurable two days of sightseeing with Glenn and Laureen!
As I sit here bringing today's missive to a conclusion I cannot help but reflect pleasurably upon our time spent with good friends and relatives over the past 9 days showing them the sights and sounds of a place with which we have come to feel quite at home. We do not feel like strangers, or interlopers anymore. We have become somewhat integrated into the community, made good friends and seen just about everything important to us. As our time here rapidly draws to a conclusion our memory banks become filled to overflowing with time spent with those we love and getting to know Mount Desert Island.
Thanks for stopping by!
