We had a fun-filled weekend this past weekend with three friends visiting - Chris and Meredith, friends of ours from college, and Eric, a friend of mine from high school. All of them were doing "east coast" trips, visiting friends and family and they ended up here in Maine at the same time.
Friday we spent the evening at home, grilling and just relaxing. Saturday we went down to Mt. Dessert Island for the day. We did a short hike, walked around Bar Harbor some, ate lunch, and drove through Acadia National Park. The weather mostly cooperated Saturday, but it was a little chilly, especially for our Texan friends.

Saturday evening we ate lobstah, (some of us did, at least) and went candlepin bowling. Chris and Meredith had to leave at midnight on Saturday/Sunday to make it to Portland for their 5:40am flight so we said good bye to them.
Sunday the weather was pretty miserable - low 50's and rainy. We drove around on MDI some more, ate lunch, went on a tour at the local brewery (they have blueberry beer!), ate whoopie pies, and went to Schoodic Point to see the tide come in. The tide makes huge splashes as it comes in and is fun to watch. If it wasn't so cold, I could have sat there for hours watching it. We spent the evening on Sunday playing Settlers of Catan and talking.
Eric left early Monday morning and now we're back in work mode. We miss our friends and hope they can either come visit us again or we can get to where they are!
