We started off with a leisurely stroll at Asticou Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor.
Well, actually after a hardy brunch we got as far as the parking lot before we dug into our little white bakery take out bags.
Ever notice how fresh air makes you hungry?
The day was glorious, yet still a bit chilly in the shade.
But we had places to go and things to see.
Maintenance had to be called in at one point though.
When someone made a footprint in the Japanese Zen garden.
At least that's what I think I saw happen. Not that I have any incriminating evidence.
As you see, I was too busy taking pictures.
Creating enough havoc in the garden for one day, we decided to head over to Acadia to do the 3 mile loop around Jordan Pond.
A rustic bridge at the half way point.
View from the bridge looking up from the right.
Oh I almost forgot this shot Diane took of us posing at Northeast Harbor at the beginning of our day. You can just make out the tight grip Henri has on that white bakery bag.
What a great time we had enjoying a hike with friends.
And communing with nature.
