Can you believe it?? I am actually not behind in my blogging. It has always
been my plan to post the blog as soon as I leave the area and I just left Bar
I was in Bar Harbor May 20 – 27 and had a great time. The weather was a bit
cold and a few times rainy and/or foggy, but I would rather it be cold than
As my few readers know I love rocks and I love water, especially the
coast. So the Maine coast was great! Below are some shots that I took while rock hopping on some stops along the
loop road in Acadia National park.
I have found the panoramic shots look better if you click on them to enlarge
I hiked several trails while there. One of my favorites was Beech Cliffs.
It is one of the shorter trails, but I loved it so much I did it twice. The
trail starts of heading up a hill in a wooded area and then I came to the view
in the first picture below. I knew I was going to like it at first sight. Then

The trail was great, it included a bit of rock climbing and some
Another short trail I hiked was Wonderland trail. It lead to the shore in an
area known for it’s tide pools. I enjoyed it and was hoping to find a sea star,
While there, I stayed at Mt. Desert Narrows RV Park. It is a private park
that is ok. The restrooms were a bit dingy (old, but clean) and for wi-fi I had
to walk up to the community building. But the view I had made up for
everything. The campground was located along a basin (I think it’s Thompson
cove, but I can’t find that map!) in the gulf. I enjoyed watching it at
different times as the tide changed. The first picture was taken with my phone
on my last night there. (so no fancy camera to change the colors). The second
is a panoramic shot taken at close to high tide. At low tide most of the area
in the photo was dry (well muddy).
I took so many pictures I will post the others in part 2.
