After this photo, I run back to the camera, turn around again and he has a small box in his hand. He drops to his knee and asks me to spend the rest of my life with him. I say yes, of course, and he slips this beauty on my finger:
We're overwhelmed with joy and so happy - and are still on the high -we climb back up on the path and arm-in-arm, aimlessly continue along... The best day of my life so far!!!!
After we finished the walk on the Shore Path and contacted our family and friends to tell the news, we found a restaurant for dinner. Adam continued his tradition of drinking the local beers. He enjoyed this one, named after a mountain we will visit the next day.
Our celebratory dinner included clam chowder, lobster, clams, rice, fiddleheads...
... and blueberry pie and a mudslide for dessert! It was a wonderfully fresh, seafoody meal!
The next day week spent the morning trekking through Acadia National Park.
Adam atop Cadalliac Mountain. Don't let his bare legs fool you - it was 40 degrees and very windy on the mountain!
And if you're wondering, wedding plans are in the works for Summer 2011!
