Sunset near Acadia National Park, Maine

Hello, Sunday!  I enjoyed Saturday, visiting my son and daughter at college, seeing their new apartments and taking them out to dinner.  It's always so good to spend time with them and I love seeing how they are thriving in their academic environment and having fun with their friends. Continuing on my 'travel' theme for the week, here is another lovely poem by Longfellow that I hope you enjoy.

A Summer Day By The Sea

The sun is set; and in his latest beams
Yon little cloud of ashen gray and gold,
Slowly upon the amber air unrolled,
The falling mantle of the Prophet seems.
From the dim headlands many a light-house gleams,
The street-lamps of the ocean; and behold,
O'erhead the banners of the night unfold;
The day hath passed into the land of dreams.
O summer day beside the joyous sea!
O summer day so wonderful and white,
So full of gladness and so full of pain!
Forever and forever shalt thou be
To some the gravestone of a dead delight,
To some the landmark of a new domain. 

Bass Harbor Head Light, Maine

 What are some of your favorite vacation memories?  I'd love to hear about them!
