We spent a sunny morning biking around the carriage trails in Acadia National Park, making a loop from Jordan Pond up to Eagle Lake, then Bubble Pond, then back down to the Jordan Pond House just in time for lunch. We got to sit on the lawn overlooking the lake having their famous popovers and tea. Really was a perfect day, even though the kids were not so much into the biking at first. Eventually, they did warm up and have a good time, but I'll be honest, the first hour there was lots of walking the bikes up hills and lots pleading and begging and cheerleading on our parts to just try riding the bike, please!! Well, no one promised family vacations would be easy and all's well that ends well, I say. A bit more on Maine tomorrow.

Also: Justine from Designskool featured our gray house on her blog this week. I love her take on it!

And: I'm thrilled to have my red stripe tote bag included in the Poppytalk Lookbook for July!

I went there years ago. The popover and the view were amazing. Merci for reminding me.
