We are very fortunate (and grateful) that Granny and Grandpa have rented a cottage in Bass Harbor for the past three summers. It truly is a little slice of heaven, with a level of privacy that affords peace and tranquility, and as you can see… a million dollar view. Easy access to everything that the quiet side of Mount Desert Island offers makes for a very pleasant and slower paced vacation, with time being spent on the deck, in the garden, and down on the shore. Oliver made himself right at home, and we enjoyed walking both the Wonderland and Ship Harbor Trails at first light every morning. Sons, daughters, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, nephews, nieces and grandchildren all spending time together in a remarkably beautiful Acadia setting… like I said… a little slice of heaven. Here are a few of my favorite non-landscapey images from around the cottage… thanks Granny and Grandpa!
