Another wonderful place that was accidentally stumbled upon yesterday was Seal Harbor, which just basically found us as we were finding an alternate route out of Acadia. I didn't actually see any seals, but it was one of those picture-esque Maine harbors that you see on calendars for sale at a bookstore. It's amazing how little justice pictures provide to some scenes.
In other news there will be boating today, and for that I am psyched. I'm not a big sailing kind of guy, but it is cool to be out on the water and who knows, maybe I will get a glimpse of some flora and fauna. Pictures would be even better. One never knows.
As a final...all be it unrelated...note, as I was logging in this morning to post something I actually yesterday, Google asked me if I wanted to monetize the blog as, in their words "it looks like you have a lot of readers" or something along those lines. For the record I don't believe their assertion, but even if I did I have no plans to add any advertising to this, ever, no matter how few or many actually look at this spew. Why? I have a few reasons actually:
- The nature of my job requires me to get my employers permission before I engage in any outside business activities. Getting a dollar every month from Google actually would be considered an "outside business activity". Simply put, I don't want to ask my employer if I can blog.
- I've seen some left-leaning blogs that end up posting advertisements for right-wing candidates (although I have not seen the reverse), and it bothers me that my space might be advocating for some one or some thing that I disagree with.
