I'm home from a really great vacation, but as always, it's good to be home.
Went to my sister's in NY State, Mid-Hudson Valley area. There I dropped off my pooch for my kind brother-in-law to take care of, and my sis and I drove to Maine.
The first and most wonderful thing that invaded my senses was that it's COOL there. Mid-70s, light breeze, low humidity. I've been to Maine twice before, but not when our local summer was so horribly sweltering, and at the same time my body temp regulation problems so severe. Even though I still had some heat issues, they were really minor in comparison.
Next, of course, was the beauty of Mt. Desert Island, just magnificent. My second time there, and I'd like to go every year. That's where Bar Harbor is, and Acadia National Park. A great place for MSers--you can actually enjoy the outdoors without being wrapped in ice packs. A pretty beach, cold water. And lobsters!! Mmmm. We had them or other seafood every night.
We also stopped in various towns, coming and going. Very quaint and picturesque. I couldn't possibly deal with the winters up there, but summers are heaven.
Back to my sister's house for a day or two, always fun. I had a bladder 'dysfunction' just while arriving home, but that's life. I'm 10 days behind on the forum, so please bear with me if I say various dumb things. Am also really tired, but a happy camper.
