First few days of Bar Harbor area

Trenton, ME
Narrows Too RV Resort

We had made reservations here along with some great friends for the whole month of July.  Dan and Tricia arrived with us while Bill and Nancy arrived shortly before us.  They are morning people and had a fairly short drive down from Lubec, ME.  Gail and Rick were suppose to join us all here but had a family emergency to take care of.  Things are ok with them now thankfully.

We arrived on my birthday and all of us went out for a lobster supper at the nearest lobster pound.  One of my favorite sweets is brownies, and Tricia had made a batch.  Great with ice cream!

Our first whole day was a bit foggy but Gin, Pam and I drove up to the Acadia Visitor Center and Cadillac Mountain to get an idea of the beauty there is to see in Acadia National Park.  Unfortunately, we didn’t see a thing!  It was in a thick cloud.  We did at least stop at Seal Harbor when we came down the Park Loop Road.

Acadia has a free LP powered bus system sponsored by LL Bean that makes a stop at this cg along with several others.  In order to get our bearings, I joined Bill, Nancy, Dan and Tricia for a day on Mount Desert Island on the buses while Gin and Pam relaxed.  It was a beautiful day and we decided to walk the Ocean Path beside the Loop Road from Sand Beach up to Otter Point passing Thunder Hole along the way.  The scenery was just spectacular!!  Many people were out relaxing on the rocky cliff where the mountain meets the sea.  I’ll just close out with a few photos of the walk since words cannot do it justice!

Seems like the Carolina Clan is having a Maine reunion! :c)

Excellent pictures, you've picked a wonderful time of year to visit (but then you knew that, didn't you?).

Thanks for those gorgeous photos! Beautiful! Anyone interested in repeating the trip in a couple years? :)

Happy belated birthday. That looks like a great place to celebrate.

Dan and Tricia said...

Yep - we sure do like Maine. And it's even better sharing it with friends!

Bruce and Laura said...

Wish we could have been there. It's been great though living it through all of you!

Bill and Nancy said...

Yep, were in for a repeat. It was just a wonderful place with so much natural beauty! Add good friends and it just doesn't get any better:o))
