Tim accused me of having spoiled the cat during the three weeks I was on the road. HA! He turned around and insisted on taking her for the longest walks she has had to date. Kitty is really getting the hang of walking on a leash. Of course, she is usually the one leading the way. Kitty has also forgiven Tim for abandoning her to three virtual strangers and is now sleeping on his legs at night.

Today we began our exploration of the park. I’ve been to the park on several occasions, and I was looking forward to touring one of my favorite parks with Tim.

The views from the Park Loop Road are glorious – the rocky coast and leaves just starting to turn shades of orange and red. There were no crashing waves today; the surf was amazingly calm. We were able to take our time, sit out on the rocks and enjoy the warm sun, gentle breeze and view of the waterfowl dipping for their lunch.

Afternoon tea at the Jordan Pond House was as good as I remembered. The restaurant is known for its popovers served with butter and strawberry jam. The popovers were to die for, warm and melt-in-your-mouth. I easily could have eaten more than the two that came with tea, but I restrained myself.

Tonight we entertained company. Jane’s youngest sister Lizz and her husband Paul happened to be camping in Acadia in the same campground where we are, and we asked them to join us for happy hour. Lizz is the third Caporelli I’ve seen on this trip. First Jane, then Mary, now Lizz. Who would have thought? Good conversation was enhanced by wine, local blueberry soda, Cabot Creamery cheese and fig and pecan dip. We do eat well.
