Throwback Adventure – August 2015 – Cadillac Mountain

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In August 2015 Shadow, Buster, My Mom, and I visited Cadillac Mountain in Desert Island, located in Acadia National Park in Maine. Cadillac Mountain is at an elevation of 1530 feet, making it the highest point along the North Atlantic Seaboard.

We had had a mystical, magical, and quite an unexpected visit to Cadillac Mountain. Although Cadillac Mountain is known for sweeping, breathtaking views, our journey began on a fog filled day, leaving no view at all. The fog was mystical, and caused us to be drenched by the end of our visit. This did not cause a damper in our visit as it wonderful and unique visit, which left us with smiles, and precious memories. So as you see the photographs do not do this spot justice, they hold a special place in our hearts. The adventure was highly magical, and we do hope to visit on a sunny, and clear day in the future (Rating; 4)

Throwback Adventure – Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse, Maine – September 2013 and February 2018

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Flashback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In September 2013, Shadow, Buster, my Mom, and I visited Neddick Lighthouse, and in February 2018, Shadow, Wilma, my Mom, and I visited Neddick Lighthouse.  As many of you know Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures.  He was an amazing boy, and will always be missed!

Cape Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse is located in Cape Neddick, York, Maine.  It is on Nubble Island off of Cape Neddick point.  It was initially put into use in 1879, and continues to be a working lighthouse.  The area is popular for visitors, and even has a small gift shop and restrooms (available in season).

We enjoyed our visits to this beautiful, scenic lighthouse.  It is the perfect place to take photographs, sit on a bench and enjoy the breeze, lounge in the grass, or jump from rock to rock along the ocean shore.  It really is a true New England landmark (Rating:  4).

Throwback Adventure – Jordan Pond, Maine – August 2015

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Flashback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In August 2015 My Mom, Shadow, Buster, and I journeyed to Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine.  Sadly Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures.  He had an amazing zest for life, led by his joyous howl, and happy tail.   We made many memories on adventures, that we fondly treasure.  He will always be missed!!

Jordan Pond was formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet during the last glacial period.  It has mountains to the west and northeast.  The loop trail around the pond is less than four miles long, and is mostly flat.  On arrival I found the area to be quite touristy, but as we began to traverse the trail around the pond we were surrounded by nature, and stunning beauty.  The perfect shaped rocks, gorgeous water, and the mountains, combined to provide a picturesque landscape.  The day of this journey it was a bit foggy, which added a mystical feature to the photos.  As per usual I took numerous photos of the boys on our adventure, and the stunning landscape.  This was definitely a trip I will always treasure.  It was one of the most gorgeous spots we have visited on our many years of adventures (Rating:  5)
