St Sauveur and Flying mt

We awoke to a sunny morning on Thursday..  the first in quite a while!  It was a perfect day for a hike so we packed our lunch and set out for the quiet side of the island… our destination  was a loop including St Sauveur and Flying mt… not a great deal of elevation, but some beautiful views and some great trails…

it was quite a nice hike..   we would highly recommend it!

we got home and showered and then I put on my best jeans and my good fleece, and we picked up a fellow camper and went to the Claremont Hotel for a lecture and performance on Bell Canto  Opera ..   I might have been slightly under dressed, but no matter..  it was a delightful evening, even for a guy who is not exactly a fan of opera..   another full day on mt desert island 🙂
