The northern branch of the family gathered to celebrate the 60th birthday of David Underwood Sr. We all gathered at the Oasis Restaurant in Bristol and had a great time. Dave’s birthday is actually not until February 3rd. According to the DatesInHistory.com nothing ever happened on that date except:

1112 marriage of Ramon Berenguer III of Barcelona and Douce I of Provence, uniting the fortunes of those two states

1377 Cardinal Robert of Geneva (anti-pope Clemens VII) starts ter

1377 more than 2,000 people of the Italian city of Cesena are slaughtered by Papal Troops (Cesena Bloodbath).

Well winter is coming on fast and the Vermont house is still not quite ready for moving in. We did accomplish a lot this year and for the first time it seems as if we might be able to actually use the place soon. This year saw the sheet rocking completed (except for the bathroom). The inside is painted, flooring is in, windows and doors trimmed and we actually have workable lights.

Day 5 York Beach and home PDF Print E-mail

Today is Friday. We made it to York from Bar Harbor without too much of a problem from the noisy part under the front bumper. After a good but brief night’s sleep we headed out to find a beach. We made our way back toward Cape Neddick where we found a beach that seemed to go on for ever along the road side. We found a place to park and headed across the street to the beach. The beach was long and the water was quite a ways out when we arrived. I guessed that it must have been low tide. We soaked our feet in the somewhat frigid waters while Laurel and Woody went in a little further.  We had to keep moving our beach stuff up the beach as the tide came in. When high tide finally got there the beach had shrunken down to 10 or 20 feet in the wider spots. 

 

We had ice cream and headed back to the car for our trip home. Before we left York Mitch used strapping tape to tape the part under the car so that it would not fall off on the way home.

Day 4 The Sun Comes Out PDF Print E-mail

The sun came out today and we went back to Acadia. It was a great day for taking great pictures. We started out on Cadillac Mountain. The view was spectacular. We took many photos that we will post later. We have been getting in too late to process the pictures.After Cadillac Mountain we were off to the Bass Harbor Light. We got some great pictures from the rocks below the light. Thunder Hole was next and unfortunately it was low tide so the thunder was reduced to an anemic clap. Woody suggested that we go over to Otter Cove. That turned out to be a great suggestion. The views were spectacular.

 On the way home we ran into some problems. The car started making a noise, which got progressively worse as we continued on. At last the "whooshing" sound changed to a slapping sound. At that point we pulled off the highway in a service area and found that the plastic piece under the bumper had come loose. We pushed it back up, called the rental company and were told to continue on and call in the morning.

Day 3 Fog on the mountain PDF Print E-mail

After breakfast at Friendly's we headed out for Acadia National Park. We arrived at the Visitors Center and watched a short video on the history of the park.We set out to drive the Park Loop. It was raining and quite foggy. We made it to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. The fog was so thick that there were no views so we decided to leave the park loop for Thursday morning and head into Bar Harbor. We got there and took a few pictures and decided to head to the Bar Harbor Oceanarium. There we saw several programs on the Maine Lobster and went for a short marsh walk.

After the Oceanarium we went to the Log Cabin Restaurant for dinner and then to the greatest mini golf place  any of us had ever seen. It had a pirate theme and offered 36 holes of golf. As we finished up the mini golf it appeared that the sun might come out
