Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Maine vacation continues

Tuesday morning we walked around Bennington for a couple of hours.
All over town there are moose - 55 of them to be exact, all works of art that different businesses have painted and dressed in their own special way as a way to attract tourists to their town. Here is a picture of one of them. I have 9 more of them that I'll post another day.
We left Bennington and continued on our way.

Tuesday was the day we planned to meet Vee and her husband John for an early dinner in Naples, Maine. All went according to plan and it was so much fun finally meeting Vee in person after being blogging friends for so long. We had a great time talking and laughing.
Here we are just finishing up a fish and chip dinner. Me, John, Vee (she didn't want her picture taken) and Ken.After dinner we walked next door to an ice cream stand and had some ice cream for dessert. :-) I think John likes ice cream just as much as I do!!

Vee had a few very nice surprises for me. Chocolate chip cookies and whoopie pies and this note book for me to record happy times in.
I had a great time and am so glad that got to meet. :-)
All too soon it was time to say good bye and off we went to find a hotel for the evening. I had a cookie and whoopie pie and both are soooo good! Thanks so much Vee! :-)

Wednesday we arrived at the Acadia National Park in Maine and are still here today. We have been hiking on some of the many trails here at the park. We have seen lots of beautiful scenery as we hike along the rocky trails.
Here are just some of the many pictures we have taken.

That's it for now. It's just about time to go walk around the town and pick out a place to eat supper. Last night we found a place that had great pizza!!
Till next time.....
Happyone :-)


  1. I'm so glad you're having a good time!!! Maine looks beautiful!

  2. Oh I'm so sorry that my email didn't arrive. I sent it two days ago from my gmail account. I have just now forwarded it to you again. That's fine just as you did it. :D

    Glad that you are having a good time and your pictures look great.

  3. I should be more clear...the way you posted my pic is just fine. Probably couldn't be much more confused than I am right now after a day with Nan. 8}

  4. I've enjoyed this glimpse of your vacation. I got a kick out of the moose and his brief case. How fun that you had lunch with Vee and John. Those whoopie pies sure look good. Arcadia National Park looks like a very pretty spot to do some hiking.

    I hope you continue to enjoy your time in Maine and have a safe trip home.

  5. I want to see all of your pictures! We'll make a date for after your vacation and mine.

  6. I was at Acadia National Park many years ago. It's a beautiful place. Are you going to see the sunrise from Mt. Cadillac?

  7. Sounds like much fun. Acadia NP looks like a great place to go with lots of photo opportunities!

  8. Oh this is a kind of vacation I would love to go on... how wonderful to see such beautiful sights!

  9. Hi Happy One
    I am a long time reader of Vee's blog and I had to come over and introduce myself after reading her post today about you and your blog. I don't think I've ever been by to visit before. I told her blogs are like books --there are so many good ones and so little time to read them all. I hope not to be a stranger from now on.
    I've visited Maine three times and really enjoyed seeing the sights there! It is so rugged and beautiful. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.
    Hugs, Pat

  10. I'm traveling too, and checking a few blogs from the road. Glad you are having fun. Acadia NP is one of my favorite places on earth. I also have good friends in Naples, ME. :)
