We stopped at Gifford’s for ice cream.

Ran the PFBF Half Marathon.

Went for a swim in McGrath pond.

IMG_20130715_143205_414We both agreed that it was possibly the most refreshing and peaceful swim EVER in the history of swims. And there have been many swims…

We took the ferry over to Mount Kineo.

Climbed Mount Katahdin.

We stopped at Coos Canyon and jumped off rocks and acted like 10-year-olds.

Although, the actual 10-year-olds who were there were jumping off much higher rocks.

We stayed in New Hampshire’s oldest Motel.

Kurt got a little hungry on the drive back to Virginia.

    Those are beautiful pictures. And you make all the exercise look so easy and fun. Granted I love climbing on rocks and being in the mountains, but your ability to make it look relaxing and peaceful is really impressive.
