So after reading all about Maine and a little about Acadia, here is the post about this amazing National Park. Throughout the past weeks, I’ve been sharing with you our adventures on a recent trip to Maine. Of the nine days, we spent 5 in Acadia, and that was not enough. We barely hiked the park as there was so much to do. Thanks to a free bus system
sponsored in large part by LL Bean, we travelled throughout much of the park while leaving the RV resting and parked. We drove the Park Loop Rd the first day in the RV to get the lay of the land, and we had breakfast the last day on top of Cadillac Mountain, but a little after the famous sunrises it is known for. In between we had a wonderful lobster and fish meal in Bar Harbor while watching the lobster boats come in and out.
One day we went bird watching with a professional bird watcher. As you saw from the first blog in the series, we also hiked Jordan Pond which is an iconic place. We did not have an popovers at the Tea House, but did picnic on the terrace.
So what was the highlight? KI and I agree it was probably seeing Acadia from the water at sunset, but we also had so many other one of kind moments for us. While never saw a moose, (we are told they live much farther north) we did see lots of Red Squirrels. We slept in our small RV under the stars , hearing the wind rustle every night. It was amazingly quiet. We played low tech games before dinner, enjoying a beer or wine as we did not have wi-fi or cell service. We ate all of our meals outside the entire week, and the weather was sunny in the 60’s and 70’s throughout.
So enjoy today’s photos from the Park Loop Road, Jordan Pond and the waterfront at Bar Harbor. The last photo was an alley way in Bar Harbor, kind of funky, but I like the shot.
