2011 Aug Vacation

I finally finished sorting the pics on the comp from our vacation so I could randomly upload some of them. Fam is welcome to stop by and see the rest on the comp if they like. Friends feel free to browse as you like. Leave comments if you feel like.

The ones from the kids first airplane trip is Here.
Maine pics are HERE.
Maine was AMAZING. BarHarbor was so much fun. Getting to go on the windjammer the Margaret Todd was so cool for our Sunset Cruise. Even if it was about 40 degress out on the water and we were soo cold. My back didnt act up once. And the Newfoundland sheep dogs that the owner lets onto the boat were as large as a small bear! We cuddled to stay warm. And it was worth it! Seeing Moose Crossing Interstate 1 was so funny. We never managed to take a picture of one of the signs but C bought me one. The whale watch cruise was, well nothing can really describe it. The pics are not at the best of times. But you try to watch whales, a 6 & 8 yr old, keep your footing and help them keep theirs on rough seas, keep distance from the sea sick ppl (if you do not know you have see legs take the sea sick pills ppl b4 getting on a boat!), and then stay still to let the camera focus when your in constant motion and the object of the picture is to. HAHA! There is nothing not to love. Even if the whale and puffin cruise was 20 degrees warmer then our Sunset Cruise we had to be up at 5am to get on our Whale and puffin cruise and on the way back to the dock we all cuddled up and slept on the yacht in the Atlantic Ocean. We napped on the Atlantic Ocean and it was the best nap ever!

We did take pics of the place we stayed in New Hampshire just 15 mins from the Hampton Beach water front. They Hotel had everything but I only took a few pics in the morning b4 we left because we wanted to get on the rode. They are HERE

Salem pics are HERE
And Salem blew me away. I knew it was gorgeous and rich in history. But no words relly work and seeing it yourself is the only way to capture it and really feel it. We learned so much about all sorts of things. Not just the Witch Trials but Pirates of the area through out history, And MANY MANY other things too. Oklahoma they said a few days ago on the news is in a 16month drought and green here isn't really green. Even in Bar Harbor I was in awe ppl were outside enjoying the outdoors. When we got to Salem the number tripled at least and the majority where JOGGING! Salem Willows is even more breath taking. If a house is up for sale when we retire from the Airforce if we can afford the place we are going to do what ever it takes to get it. Its that AMAZING! I didn't even take pics of that area well except a sea gull who was just checking out ppl as they jogged or walked by.
