The Best of US... and the Worst

Posted by Tyson Lemke on

Sitting over breakfast at our hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine, my wife and I enjoyed the views of the Atlantic Ocean dotted with boats.  The week had been just about perfect in every possible way.  We had eaten great food, enjoyed fantastic weather without bugs and had been able to hike...
