This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip during the month of May through eight New England States – Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
Part 2 – It rained through our first night at Bar Harbor but had stopped when we awoke. Although it was very cloudy as the pictures show, some blue skies began to break through.
First things first – we made a trip to the local supermarket and picked up a cooler, cheeses, crackers, fruit and some drinks. Each day, throughout our entire trip, we would find a nice place to stop for lunch, pull out our cooler and enjoy a simple meal surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.
We had three main goals for the next two days; 1) visit as many lighthouses as we could, 2) see Acadia National Park , 3) tour the town of Bar Harbor.
We took a tour boat to visit the lighthouses, which was great way to see many of the historic dwellings. Acadia National Park is best seen by car so we drove through and stopped at each of the touristy attractions. And finally, to see the Town of Bar Harbor you should get out and walk. It’s small enough and you really need to go in and out of the many shops to enjoy it’s true character.
I have included some photo’s showing our adventure in Maine. Each photo has a caption giving a bit of information about the image. If you would like to learn more about any of the locations, click on the appropriate subject title listed below:
