Maine, the last state in New England for us to visit. CHECK!
We drove up after dinner on Friday night. It was late when we rolled in, so it was to bed for a big day on Saturday. Unfortunately, the FOG was what we woke up to. If you are ever wondering why Steven King almost always has a fog in his books... it's because it is REALLY FOGGY in Maine. Especially on these islands. But we don't let the weather stop us. We got in the car and drove into Bar Harbor to walk around and eat some breakfast.
This fountain is near the harbor... Can you see it?
One of my main goals on this trip was to walk along the sand bar. Apparently at low tide you can walk between the islands. I thought this would be really cool. So we went to check it out at high tide for a comparison.
We shall see...
After breakfast, at this cool dinner, we drove up to Cadillac Mountain. Again, the fog put a little glitch in this plan. It was sort-of fun driving up and not really seeing ANYTHING. So we parked the car and decided to explore on foot.
We got back in the car and drove into the town again. I thought we should check out the tide situation before lunch. I'm so glad we did!
They weren't kidding when they said you can WALK on the sea floor to the neighboring island. You know us, we did it!
We found a trail that leads into the island, so you know we had to check that out too!
We crossed back over the sand bar and went to have some lunch. There was this cool theme-restaurant called "Route 66". It had some REALLY good lobster and crab. Maine sure does know how to make seafood.
We went back to the hotel to rest for a while. Then we ate dinner at a cool restaurant called "Geddy's". The weather wasn't as super as we would have liked, but we weren't staying much longer.
After a leisure morning, we packed up and drove back to Cambridge. Honestly, it was the perfect length of a trip. Next road trip... THE DRIVE HOME!!!
