Acadia - place I want to go back to...

Last week we took kids to Acadia National Park.
This is such a beautiful  and tranquil place - I have to share some pictures with you.
The pictures were taken by our 16-year-old, he has an eye for this, I think...

Back to knitting though: now I am thinking about making this shawl  by Melisa McCurley with an appropriate name:
Acadian Shawl

Happy Knitting everyone!
