This is what I imagined Maine would look like! It’s the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Acadia National Park. Quintessential Maine. We spent the better part of a day exploring the park by driving the loop road and stopping at virtually every stop. But first – obligatory campsite photo with master fire builder Sarah.
The Rockefeller family funded miles of carriage roads throughout Acadia. We walked out from Jordan Pond and saw some of the historic rock bridges.
We timed our visit to Thunder Hole for high tide but the conditions weren’t prime for the tide to “thunder” as it rolled into the slot. Still a pretty sight. And can you believe the folks laying on top of the cliff overlooking?
Peaceful scene from Sieur de Monts Wild Gardens of Acadia.
The two food groups in Maine are lobster and blueberries. Wild blueberries grow outside the Jordan Pond House and they let you pick them!
And then there’s lobster. First picture is of Red’s Eats in Wiscasset, recommended by Jan Fisk and featured on CBS Sunday Morning the weekend before we left. We waited in line for 2 hours for amazing lobster rolls. The second was a more refined lobster event. 🙂
