Where We Be
Bar Harbor, Maine -- Autumn
Bar, Harbor Maine -- Winter
The rumours are true -- it does get cold here. But watching
the snow fall, minus the commute to work, suddenly makes
it prettier. And the sunsets in between snowstorms -- wow.
Maine's fall foliage is spectacular this year

We arrived at Robin's parents' house near Bar
Harbor on October 17. We got ourselves settled
into Little Cottage, a wonderful home away from
home, and began enjoying the golden days of
Indian Summer. Most days were sunny and crisp,
and the foliage was some of the best we've ever
seen in New England, period. There really is
nothing like spending autumn in New England.

We got to meet mom and dad's new puppy, Bijou,
for the first time. She's a white poodle with the
energy of ten puppies. She went crazy when she
first met us, jumping and nipping and scampering
around the kitchen like a complete nut. Thankfully
she calmed down as the evening progressed. She
loves playing with her hedgehog toy and instantly
took to me as I sat on the floor and played with her.

Note: Ten days after we arrived Robin's dad
passed away. We were so grateful to have arrived
in Maine in time to be with him. His passing was
peaceful and he was surrounded by family and
loved ones.
