My husband, Scott Moore, is a landscape painter. The above painting is "June Evening Sears Island". We have been taking walks on this island for twenty years.
Today we went to Bar Harbor for a small exhibit of paintings from Argosy Gallery. We arrived early and took a walk around town. There is my husband with my daughter and her boyfriend waking towards the water.
We took the cliff path, along the ocean. There are mansions and inns along the path.
And some lovely gardens.
There is something wrong with my camera and it won't adjust for sun. Scott kept asking me, "Do you have the manual?" Of course I have the manual, somewhere.
I love the precision and symmetry of this house.
And the asymmetry and cottage-y feeling of this one.
This faux Tudor house has been converted into a restaurant.
A garden shop.
It was a lovely day. Bar Harbor is a tourist destination, but also a charming town, and it was full of visitors. You can tell they are father and daughter even from the back.
The exhibit was hosted by Galyn's Restaurant, who catered delicious food, very artistically displayed. My daughter pointed out the mice radishes.
Scott had two night paintings on display.
And a blueberry barren.
We came home, Scott made pasta allacarbonara, and we watched Kenneth Branagh's movie "Love's Labour's Lost".
Yesterday, to celebrate Knit in Public Day, I knit with some lovely ladies and gave my Stories of Knitting talk at the Milford, Connecticut public library. It was a six hour drive, and we spent the night in a beautiful condo overlooking Long Island Sound. On the way down and back we listened to the audiobook "The Shadow of the Wind" which takes place in Barcelona and I knit a blanket for my daughter who graduated from high school this month.
Happy Father's Day!
