On My Own

(Holden, ME) Hi 75 Lo 63 -- We were up early this morning... too early! I had to get Jim to the airport by 5:30. He's off to North Carolina for the funeral of his uncle Willie, who died this past week. I dropped him off and headed back home just as the sun was starting to come up. Neither of us has seen the sun rise in a very long time.

Jim had a very long day. I followed the three legs of his trip flightview.com.  He went from here to Philadelphia, then to Charlotte, and then a little prop plane to New Bern. When he was in the air I would sleep awhile.  The rest of the time while he was in layovers, I would nap a few minutes then play computer games or read blogs.

There's a restaurant on site here at the park. I went there this evening for an all you can eat haddock fish dinner. They do a very good job and have quite a variety of foods. They even have lobster rolls, which I'll get tomorrow for lunch.

This evening I walked around the park and met a lot of people who were sitting outside enjoying the great weather. There's hardly any humidity and the temperature is in mid 60's. It just doesn't get any better for August.

I may get out tomorrow, but there's a Folk Festival going on in Bangor this weekend with thousands of people attending, so I'm not going that direction. I'm not sure what I'll do, so stay tuned.

Sorry to hear about Jim's uncle. Hope he gets back to you safe and sound real soon.
