We’re midway through the week and our vacation in Maine has been excellent so far! The resort is very nice with all the amenities.
On Sunday morning, MJ and I walked to the top of Jordan Mountain. It took us a full hour to walk up. We spent some time walking around the ski lifts and then came back down. In the afternoon, we drove to the top of Mount Washington, which is the highest peak in the entire North East. At the base it was 69 degrees, at the top of the mountain it was 21 degrees. It was an eight mile drive up with the road being just wide enough for 2 cars to pass each other with inches to spare.
On Monday we took ATV’s out. Cathy and I each drove one with the kids on the back. It was a blast. Its Wednesday and Cathy is still recovering!
Tuesday we went Horseback riding. Jill got to ride her own horse! In the Poconos we go on trail rides all the time. This was different. Everyone had to control the horse through the trails. We even got to trot with the horse. Jill and MJ had an absolute blast.
Today we went to Grafton State Park. I thought the trail we were walking was going to be a relatively simple trail. Whoops! It was a 900 foot climb to the top of Table Rock. We had a great view once we got there.
Tomorrow we’re planning to take the ferry to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
