The second Island we toured on our Cranberry Island trip
Little Cranberry Island
Islesford is a picturesque harbor town on Little Cranberry Island just southeast of Mount Desert Island, Maine, providing spectacular views of Acadia National Park. Access is provided by a local mailboat or tour boats from Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Several interesting shops, galleries and artisans reside here. The Islesford Historical Museum (operated by the National Park Service) shows ship models, tools, and photographs that reveal island life during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Admission to the museum is free. (Islesford Photos) via Acadiamagic.com

Nestled just 30 minutes by ferry southeast of Mount Desert Island, with superb views of the mountains of Acadia National Park, the five Cranberry Isles host a year-round community of lobstermen, boatbuilders, and craftsmen, as well as numerous rusticators who’ve been returning each summer for years, if not generations.
Great Cranberyy Island
Great Cranberry Island, the largest of the Cranberry Isles, has a truly commanding and spectacular view of Mount Desert Island and the mountains of Acadia National Park in Maine. Located near the southern entrance to Somes Sound, you can view Manset, Southwest Harbor and Somes Sound to the northeast from the public pier. Sutton Island and Northeast Harbor are to the north. Little Cranberry Island and Islesford are to the east. via AcadiaMagic.com

Thanks friends and family~ so much for all of your caring comforting words.
Its been a while since I have felt like posting anything.
I feel like I am ready to blog again.
I am ready to talk about my precious fur boy Ballie. I miss him and tears come at least once a day. I will blog about my sweet boy soon.
Jeff and I have been pretty much out of cell and internet service for the past three weeks while in Maine and NH.
We are in NH for another week or so then back to Ct for a few weeks~I will have internet and lots of photos to show you all, of beautiful Maine and NH.
I hope you are all well, and staying cool. Its pretty darn hot in NH too. No hiking for us until it cools down.
See you all real soon!
I haven’t the heart to blog yet…My first post will be about Ballie and the decision to put him to sleep….
I haven’t visited many blogs either, or spent much time on Twitter…or facebook
I hope you all understand..I am working on getting my Happy Back.
