I am a Findlay native, born and raised in Findlay, Ohio back in the good old days (really!!).
Findlay is my "Home Town" of which I am VERY proud. I like to keep up with what's happening there through a daily survey of The Courier Web site, which I really enjoy and that gives me a sense of "connection" with my past. I remember "The Republican Courier" as a kid growing up and being delivered to our house!
In 1982 I was working for Marathon Oil Co. in Findlay and got transferred to Houston, Texas. I still live here in Katy, Texas (a suburb) and am currently retired from Marathon Oil and paint murals in our area schools, churches and homes.
My family has been vacationing in Maine for the past 10 years. This year we stayed in a cabin that was located on Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park.
This area has it all! Mountains meeting the sea and every possible "land/sea" experience one could conceivably want. Just beautiful! Bar Harbor is a picturesque, shopping-lovers town by the sea, not to be missed. Neither Texas nor Ohio is anything like Mt. Desert Island!
The pictures in this post are of Balance Rock, a lobster boat and the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. Click HERE to see the photo I sent before of "Jordan Pond House" in the heart of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine.
According to the National Park Service, "Balance Rock on South Bubble (Mountain) in Acadia National Park is a fine example of a glacial erratic boulder transported by the last ice sheet." Click HERE to learn more about the terrain of the watershed.
