We celebrated Joel’s birthday while on our vacation on Moosehead Lake in Maine. We started it with a birthday breakfast of blueberry pancakes, bacon + coffee. We ate on the porch and when I opened the door to bring out the grub, there was a whole line of ducks waddling up from the lake! Within a few minutes all the deer who had been snuggled down in the grass on the shoreline had woken and also joined us at the porch. Apparently not even animals + birds can resist the smell of bacon in the morning.

It was a bit of a chilly day, so spent the rest of the day reading and napping. When the sun did shine for a bit we headed to a local stream so Joel could do a little fly fishing and then went on a Moose safari on the way home (ie drove dirt roads with my head popped out of the sun roof, camera in hand). We finished up the day with birthday s’mores around the campfire.

Happy Birthday, my Love!!
