Soccer (and coaching) season has started, and what with the whole heading back to school thing for Jack and Sam, I haven’t really had much time to update the blog lately. A rare fall Saturday without a game, however, meant that we could slow down and get back to doing what we like to do best… enjoying the beautiful weather in Acadia National Park.
A nice leisurely walk along the edge of the Jordan Pond Stream as far as the Cobblestone Bridge was the perfect pre-lunch activity. Tranquil and deserted, the trail felt as though it could have been deep in the wilderness, but instead it was within a mile or so of our lunch reservation… The Jordan Pond House. What a view, and the food wasn’t bad either.
Bellies filled, we couldn’t go home without taking a quick run around the island to the Loop Road to see the ocean. We parked down by Otter Cliffs and basked in the warm sun while using the huge granite boulders to gain some respite from what was a rather cool breeze. Even though the sun was shining and the temperatures were quite nice, there was definitely a chill in the air already… a sure sign that fall is just around the corner.
