Spotlight On...

Okay, usually Tuesdays are reserved for Spotlight On... Books.
And though I did read a book last week on vacation, it stunk.
So in the spirit of if you don't have anything nice to say, I'm not saying anything.
Instead, I have a Spotlight On... My vacation (I'm trying to hold onto it as long as I can!)

Butterfly on Mt. Pico, near Killington, Vermont.

The kids and I admire the view from Mt. Pico.

Apparently there's been epic rain in Vermont--makes for a lot of mud on the trails.

We've been going on vacation to Vermont for eight years .
This was our first moose sighting.

Drying out boots after being caught in a downpour.

Our first trip to Maine: Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor.
If you hike up Cadillac Mountain, you'll see views like this.
Of course, you could also drive to the top, but I like to think the views
wouldn't be nearly as good.

Fellow author Jessica Conant-Park told me about Indian Point, near
Bar Harbor, a spot to seal-watch. They never really came close to shore but it
was so fun to watch their antics.

  1. Beautiful pix...New England is truly the most beautiful part of the country, but I'm probably prejudiced =)

    Too bad about spending vacation with a lousy book...over the weekend I read Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen. It's the first Plum novel I've read, and loads of fun. I especially loved Lula and Grandma...they're a hoot together.

  2. You're pictures are great. I especially love the sunset photo.

    Sorry about the bad book. I agree with Melissa, Finger Lickin' Fifteen is a riot.

    Have a good Tuesday.

  3. Melissa, I totally agree with you, so if you're prejudiced, then so am I! And I CANNOT believe that's the first Janet E book you've read. You. Must. Get. Backlist.

    Thanks, Dru! And I'll be reading 15 soon! Those books always make me laugh.
