We began our first day (Thursday) with Glenn (brother-in-law) and Laureen (TLE's younger sister) by meeting them at 'Eat-A-Pita' for breakfast about 10 am. It's been about 18 months since we have gotten together. The last time was at our school reunion in Las Vegas in March of 2017. We really had no plan for the day, and sometimes that is the best way to begin a day of touring.....just make it up as you go. Well, the first part was deciding at the last minute to have breakfast at our favorite local breakfast place. From there we drove both cars up to Southwest Food Mart where we left the VW in their parking lot, and continued on with Glenn and Laureen in their rental car to spend the day exploring the highlights of Acadia National Park. They are only here for parts of three days so there was not a lot of time!
Glenn suggested I play chauffeur, and I accepted the task. We began our drive over towards Bar Harbor deciding to hit Cadillac Mountain first. The other day (before Labor Day) when we were there with Charles and Bobbie we had a difficult time finding a parking spot, but this time (after Labor Day) we found a spot pretty quickly. As always we talked continuously as we walked around the various paved trails at the summit. The day had begun overcast, but by the time we finished breakfast the cloud cover had melted away. Nevertheless, it was quite humid, which restricted the amazing view from the summit a tad, but it was still amazing as always.
Charles and Bobbie joined us shortly after 5:30 and we placed our wine and entree orders (we all ordered their grill salmon dinner!). Just as we were finishing our dinners the sun began to set to the west of us......just beautiful!
As we paid our bills we took a few sunset pictures and then headed for our vehicles. We said our 'until next times' to Charles and Bobbie before heading back to Southwest Harbor for the evening. Glenn and Laureen dropped us off at the VW and we made plans to meet for breakfast again Friday morning. Friday will be their final day here in their brief MDI visit so we will make the most of our time.
