Aurora Around America Ep. 17

We spent some time in the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda area of Florida over the winter. Aurora wanted to try something new and we found a great beginners quilting class at the White Daisy Quilting Shop. It was a brand new business to the area and Cheryl was excited to take Aurora on as a student. I have posted a link to the Quilt shop and class Aurora took.

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

  • by Garrett Tershel

This is not a hike that is listed on the REI Trails app but it was a great walk and a very educational day.  The tide in Maine ranges almost 12ft from high tide to low tide.  During low tide great tide pools are created and available to explore.  We highly recommend the day walking along the shore of Bar Harbor.

The drive north to Acadia National Park in early October was one of the most magnificent. We spent two weeks in Maine and everyday the colors changed and the contrast of the trees, the sky, the land and the water seemed to only get better and better.

A Thousand Trails to Maine

A Thousand Trails to Maine

  • by desiertog

We could hear water so decided to walk into the woods a little. We ended up finding a little lake and little waterfalls. We spent maybe an hour and a half exploring. If we had packed water shoes and a lunch we would have spent much more time there. We came to find it was called Schroon Lake.
