|View from the balcony of our room. I could wake up to that every morning!|
|Our room even had a cute little fire place!|
After stuffing our faces, we went to the casino, ate dinner, then headed to a little movie theater where we saw The Account (great movie, definitely recommend it).

|This picture doesn't even come close to showing it, but the fall colors were amazing every where we went.|

|One of the many beautiful homes on the island. Kevin thought it was so weird that I took a picture of someone's house.|
|Took a little break on the carriage ride to let the horses rest. Beautiful views everywhere!|
|The carriage tour stopped at Arch Rock. One of my favorite places on the island.|

Saturday morning we were up early so we could catch a ferry to the island for our races! I ran the half marathon and Kevin did the 5.7 mile race. Even though I had been training, I was not prepared for all of the hills on this race. They were intense. And there were a lot of them. The first two miles and the last two miles were on the outside of the island, but the middle 9 miles were all run on trails through out the island. I didn't have a time goal for this, just to run the entire time, which I did, so I was happy. My time ended up being 2:30:17 (I could be off on the seconds...but it was 2 hours and 30 minutes). Kevin killed it in his race...he ran lot of hills too and his time was great! Just over 51 minutes.
|Ready for our races! Don't let the sun fool you, it was only a high of 49 degrees that day!|
|Heading to the finish line. Dead tired lol|
|I did it! 13.1 miles!|
|This was the area where our run started and finished. Like said, beautiful everywhere!|
Sunday morning we packed up, headed home, picked up Admiral, and spent the rest of the day watching football and doing laundry. It was such a great mini-vacation. Kevin and I had a blast relaxing and enjoying our time together. I love that we were able to take this little trip together, especially have after a crazy busy summer. It was nice to just relax and enjoy our time together.
