The colors of the leaves changed from pretty to gorgeous and awesome.. glowing today.
We started with a surprise at First Impressions and Nancy King surprised by her first appointment Sarah Dunn !
.
Then to Moore School for a tour by Joan Preble and meeting MuM’s writing group and Malissa the yoga/fitness instructor who whipped MuM into shape for the visit
.
Lunch at Martha’s our own tradition of eating there for Mother’s Day for breakfast.
We had lunch and each had a BLT … a favorite of my Mother’s.  At the Jordan Pond House,
we had one of my mother’s favorite treats, popovers, which she learned to perfect making
at home.
Shopped at Reny’s a Maine establishment for souvenirs and headed off to MDI again.
We drove around the perimeter of Mount Desert Island today…
BarHarbor to Manset.

If Stacey or I could have climbed out on the rocks or come in by sea this is the view of the Bass Harbor Light house.

Stacey walked down to the base of the steps at Bass Harbor Lighthouse and and down to the keeper’s house.  It was quite the walk for her, but she accomplished it in fine style even in
the rain.
.
We visited the the Swan’s Island Ferry terminal in Bass Harbor and then to Manset and to Seal Cove … places that I travel to but Stacey lived in Bar Harbor and these were mostly new sights to her… and and then home.
,
Joan, a close friend, stopped by and brought Stacey some treasures to take back with her and 
the three of us had a wonderful time talking and marveling how Joan has been a part of our lives our entire time in Maine (1971)
.
Dinner tonight at China Hill with friends.
The rain continued to drizzle all day with downpours in Bar Harbor.

The weather didn’t stop us from having fun…
.
This brings us to the end of the 3 day whirlwind visit to relieve the homesickness of
my daughter.  I think the trips down memory lane helped us both… and we agreed
that five years was too long to be apart.
