Maine Trip Report

The state motto of Maine is "The way life should be" and after visiting, I can see why. We started our trip in Bar Harbor, which is located on Mt. Desert Island. The primary attraction here is Acadia National Park, which for me was the highlight of the trip (besides WEBS, duh).
On our first day in Bar Harbor, it rained. We spent most of the day relaxing and wandering around town, and around 4PM the rained started to clear. We strolled along the shore path in downtown Bar Harbor.

That night we went up to the top of Cadillac Mountain to see the sunset. It was beautiful but very chilly!

The next day we spent in Acadia. It was truly stunning...the blue waters, green trees and rocks made for many great pictures.

One of many lookout spots. We got better at taking pictures of ourselves as the trip went on.

Sand beach within the park. The water was quite cold!

We took a slight detour out of the park and explored Seal Harbor.

We then went back into the park and walked the trail around Jordan Pond.
After leaving Bar Harbor, we spent 3 more relaxing days in Camden. The highlights of Camden were some off the beaten path lobster pounds we found. I think I ate lobster at least once a day for the entire trip. Yum!

Hello. I am your dinner.
It was a wonderful week and we had beautiful weather. This weekend I'm getting ready to head back to work, knitting and visiting with family. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend as well.
