Homecation Day 8. It was a gorgeous day so we packed a picnic and took it to the Schoodic Peninsula which is part of Acadia National Park where we were on Day 6. The entrance to Schoodic is in Winter Harbor – about 30 minutes from home. (Click on images for a larger view.)

Only two more days of my homecation left. I’m trying not to think about it!
