June 1: Baguette and Brie

Whenever we travel to Mount Desert Island, we always stop in Ellsworth at Rooster Brother for one of their homemade baguettes, a wedge of Brie, and a wedge of mousse truffee. And a few quality chocolate bars for the road, preferably bittersweet chocolate filled with marzipan or dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt.  On our way up the coast to the Acadia Birding Festival on Friday afternoon, the sun was shining. It was too glorious a day to spend so many hours in the car, so we took our goodies to a picnic table alongside the Union River and watched cormorants patrol the river while an osprey called nearby. Simple pleasures, enhanced by the adventure of being on the road to a fun weekend together.

Baguette, cheese, pate,
your company, riverside--
the joys of travel.
