Vacation: the good, the bad and the ugly

I just got back from a week's vacation in Maine (a house on Little Cranberry Island, to be precise) and thought I'd share the good, the bad, etc.

The good
  • Little internet and cell phone availability (so you can really get away from it all)
  • Lobster
  • Very friendly people
  • Sea air
  • Local restaurant, library, artists
  • Close to NEHarbor, SWHarbor and Bar Harbor

The bad
  • Little internet and cell phone availability (difficult when trying to coordinate with people and/or when something major happens at work)
  • The ferry on/off island stops running pretty early
  • Really pre-thinking your meals
The ugly
  • Eight.Hour.Drive. (one way)
  • Driving through carwash level rain to get home
The incredible

It's beautiful there. Worth the drive? It would be to me, but I don't know how you feel about these things. *G* That rain really was pounding!

I'm glad that "good" and "incredible" outnumbered the bad, and that you had such a great time. :0)
