First Day in Bar Harbor

I have to admit that there's nothing quite like climbing up a rock wall with hundreds of feet in a drop below me for making me forget I have asthma. Maybe that's why I like adrenaline rushes, they really help make my breathing clearer, and I have something else to focus on.

Of course, the day started out a lot easier than that, and it was a lot easier going on 'a hike up to Beehive' when no one knew that clinging to the face of cliffs was going to be involved.

Second Day in Bar Harbor

John was up early, finishing details on how to meet up with folks when we're done here, and he found that he does, indeed, have my cold. I hope his Coldeze will help him more than my Airboure did. I had a really hard time with my breathing this morning, but by the time I'd downed a mug of coffee at the bakery a block down from the hotel and coughed up some stuff, I was better...

We weren't that ambitious with today, but Jet really, really, really wanted to climb Cadillac Mountain and go to Sandy Beach.
