Flat Kendall and I went to coastal Maine this past week. I had a workshop to do in Bar Harbor midweek, and we decided to make it into a little sightseeing vacation. One of our many stops was to Acadia National Park near Bar Harbor, ME.
We drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain for some breathtaking views.
Later that day, it was time to visit the lobster pound for some fresh lobster for dinner. You pick out your lobster, and they cook it right there for you.
We did some shopping in downtown Bar Harbor where I saw this colorful display of pinwheels for sale outside a hardware store.
On one of the docks was a full-size replica of a whale. We don’t see any fin back or minke whales on the west coast like they in Maine. We mostly see grey whales off the coast of Oregon during their migration and some Orca whales off of the Washington coast.
The weather was beautiful and a sunset cruise on a four-masted windjammer seemed to be in order for the evening. The conditions were just right for a sun dog to appear. Do you know what a sun dog is?
It wouldn’t be Maine without a foggy day.
We took a boat tour of the harbor, some of the surrounding islands and light houses, and the coastline.
We had a great time in Maine. Don’t worry, Kendall was home having fun with her brother, Bailey.
