We had a Wonderful Week! Weather was Wonderful also.Echo Lake Beach was Great for the Children and the water was warmer than the Sea ! We had lots of Boat Rides to choose from,We went Deep Sea Fishing and Caught LOBSTERS! which we ate for dinner! The BEST Fishing Boat was 'VagaBond ' at Beals Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor. Bike Riding was Great Fun. We Rode around Eagle Lake and Jordon Pond, my legs were aching after,but it was exilarating! And, Breath-taking views from Cadilac Mountain.This house was a Great Base and Well Equiped. A Memorable time was had by All! Sarah, Amy, Tom Morgan, and Ellie
