what a great weekend… and it definitely went too fast!

Richard flew into Bangor late on Wednesday night, and Brisbee and I collected him from the airport… we spent the next three days packing as much into just as little time.  We headed to Two Cats for breakfast, walked around town for a little shopping, into Acadia National Park to see Sand Beach and Thunder Hole, and then out to Ellsworth for some more shopping!

Friday, the Holland America Veendam was in town, and Richard and I went for lunch on board, and headed out for dinner with Mike and Vera at the Town Hill Bistro that night.

On Saturday, we hung out at my apartment in the morning, and then decided to head to Bangor to spend some (more) time shopping before Richards flight!

Jumping back in time, to September 25 —

I headed down to Uncle Billy’s for two nights, and three days of relaxing nothingness, and it was fabulous!  The drive down was such a gorgeous day, I decided to stop at the Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Observatory…. and it was totally worth it.

So, today was such an awesome day….

3 ships, the HAL Veendam, the HAL Eurodam, and the RCCL Enchantment of the Seas were all in port…. first time in my four seasons that I have had three large cruise ships in together on the same day!  Overall, it was controlled chaos and we helped raise money for the 2012 MDA Fill the Boot Campaign with the BHFD, http://iaff4666.unionactive.com.

Me and the BHFD!
