I had a great vacation in the Northeast over two weeks, during which Hurricane Sandy made its appearance. My family and friends who I visited were not affected. My trip was only adjusted in that I stayed in Maine for an extra day, and rolled into my sister's driveway in Pennsylvania during trick-or-treating instead of the night before. I feel horrible for those who have had everything from inconvenience to real suffering, and am hoping the best for needs to be met and communication to be back up. Along with casting my vote this week, I think it's my duty to do a few things that will benefit those in that corner of the U.S. We all should--no? I will do what I can.
In the mean time, here are a couple of pictures from my trip. These were taken at Acadia National Park--a very beautiful place all around.
Cheers, and more is to come.
