"Bangor? I Hardly Knew Her"

Spent most of last week in Bar Harbor, Maine (I heard the title's phrase three times while visiting). The trip really lent its self to photographs, but not much more. Between damp weather, a sick family, and oh yeah work (the reason we were there), we didn't get to do too much. But it was nice to be out and about visiting friends and seeing new sights.

Speaking of traveling, I recently came across this site which chronicles the travels of a couple of Canadians. In 2001 they went on an adventure visiting every tourist trap in the 48 contiguous states and in 2002 they traveled the perimeter of Australian on a tandem recumbent quincycle. Their sites are amazingly detailed and includes (fun, but) unnecessary information such as a photo and information regarding a kid that kept them awake while camping in the Smoky Mountains. It's a great time waster. The wife and I have taken plenty of trips, but never thought of chronicling them in this way. Personally I don't know if it's worth it, as I'd much rather be experiencing then recording. But it's fun to live through someone else's experiences.

    Traveling and getting sick with a little one blows. I hope it wasn't N that got sick; that makes it even doubly hard.

    Nice shot of the harbor though.
