A Trip to Acadia

We started a long weekend trip to Bar Harbor, Maine by going to Acadia National Park. We climbed Cadillac Mountain overlooking the Porcupine Islands, finding the geodetic marker at the top, climbed the Bubbles and went out to Bubble Rock, went to Schoodic Point to watch waves crash on a shore that is rocky and craggly and everything you think of when you think of a Maine coast, took a boat ride out to the Cranberry Islands and saw seals and an ospry (in addition to the many gulls who followed us around) and ended our last day there with a sunset on top of Cadillac Mountain, where we met a puggle named Stella. I think she was enjoying the people more than the sunset. In addition to days of hiking there were evenings of enjoying the wonderful seafood of Maine. Lobster stew the first night at the Bar Harbor Inn was the absolute best ever!! I even tried (on a dare from my friend) lobster ice cream which was being served at a local ice cream parlor, Ben and Bill's, in town. We even got to watch the conference championship clinching game (Blackhawks vs. Sharks) in a restaurant in town the day before we left.

Don't ya love Schoodic Point? I can - no, I HAVE - sat at SP for hours on end! I think Sea Wall is my fave, though.

What fabulous pictures!! Then we kept scrolling and saw a smiling Puggle!! (hee hee) Too Cute!!

Rob's been there a lot as a child and brags about all the lobster him and his Grandfather would eat!! I don't eat lobster, but once I tried it at Red lobster and had to hear him the WHOLE time talk about the lobster there!! He has fond memories of the place and I can see why!! Very beautiful!!
He's parents are going to join his Grandmother soon in NH and he would like to take me there someday!!

Thanks for sharing!!
