We had a wonderful time at our convention at Bar Harbor in Acadia National Park. I'm sure some of you have been there but if you haven't you should put it on your list of places to visit. The scenery is breathtaking and there is a lot to do. While the men were golfing we went to the little downtown and did some perusing in the wonderful little shops. There is something for everyone there including the youngsters. D bought a black lab stuffed toy at The Barkery and T did the stuff your own bear, although she picked a bunny.
Once you get them stuffed you have a whole store full of accessories to chose from to dress your new friend in. There has to be at least a gazillion different outfits!
The finished product! :0)
The air was heavy this weekend and it looked like something out of a Stephen King movie with the boats shrouded in the fog. (I've always wanted to use the word shrouded in something!) heehee! Quite an eerie look at times. But the sun came out and it was beautiful too.
There are all kinds of interesting shops, restaurants and such to go in. I thought of Moose Buyer so many times as there were moose things everywhere!
It was a fun time with my whole family there plus Sherri's Mom, Mimi who was 'Nanny In Charge'of D and T when we had a function to attend. This convention was very family friendly and invited people to bring their children and had children's events planned each night that the kids loved. Some conventions won't allow you to bring your kids or grand kids. It also was nice not to have to fly all day to get home but just jump in the car and drive about an hour and fifteen minutes! :0)
