A Day of Ice Fishing in Acadia


We were the first to arrive at Eagle Lake in Acadia National Park this morning to begin a day of ice fishing. This was our first trip of the season. We decided to forego the lure of the free fishing that begins tomorrow, remembering it is always more serene on a week day.






I must have taken several hundred pictures here today, enjoying all the subtle changes in the light as the day progressed.




But I will show restraint in my post.








Eventually we got a little hungry.











Good thing I packed us a picnic basket.









Before we left, we took a walk on the trail that circles around the lake.







Except we did not circle around the lake, because it would have been dark before we even made it half way around. But that was okay, because I got to spend the entire day here with my favorite guy in a place that I truly love.

I've never 'met' an ice fisherman before! The allure still evades me, but it looks like you guys enjoyed it immensely.
