I love Maine. I have visited Maine at least once (and usually many more times) a summer for my whole adult life.
Last week we went to Bar Harbor. The photo above shows the 'bar' at low tide. It is a tide road and leads over to an island. Our timing on our first day visiting was perfect to go across the bar.
Here's Tess in the water.
It is a huge wide area that opens up at low tide.
This is in town. The last time we went to Bar Harbor it was earlier in the season and not nearly as busy. Last week it was full of people everywhere. There was also a cruise ship in port so that added to the crowd.
This is a penny squisher machine to make souvenir pennies. We make them wherever we see a machine and have quite a little collection.
This penny machine was near a restaurant where we ate called Geddy's - Yum!
Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor is a gorgeous park that I would recommend to anyone visiting the area. It is so scenic! This is the view from the top of Cadillac Mountain which you can drive to the summit of. I wouldn't officially declare myself as scared of heights, but I definitely don't like them. I was a little nervous as we drove up the mountain. It wasn't anywhere near the fear I felt when we drove up Mount Washington a couple of summers ago (I think that should be on everyone's bucket list), but I was a bit on edge.
At a beach in the park. The kids would have stayed for days I think.
So, I guess I'm back blogging again. I finished the I Spy Planet Hexy Quilt and will post it tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
