Visually Acadia

There is no way this small sampling of pictures could in any way represent the park, but its a start..

Image

After leaving Portland, we drove up the coast on Highway 1, this was our first potential lunch stop.

Image

We drove into the night.  Stopped at a great place called Jasper’s, then continued on into Bar Harbor.  Good Morning!

Image

Gordy and the Boats.

Image

This is a fountain.

ImageHalf way up Cadillac mountain provided a nice view of the town below.

ImageJust stopping for a while to take it all in. A lot of the pictures later are from along the coastline in front of us.

ImageNot a bad lunch stop. Jordan Pond. It kind of seemed fake.

ImageReady or not, here I come!  (Buttercup is not very good at hide-and-seek but I always let her pretend that she does a really good job hiding.)

ImageI’M THE KING OF THE WORLD!!!!

ImageGetting better at the hide and seek.

ImageHe’d getting into a bad habit of sticking his tongue out at me.

ImageWe got there about an hour and half early and not only watched the sun go down but also the crowd gather and disperse.

ImageIt was pretty amazing the amount of time we were able to spend in isolation in the park.

ImageHiking into Wonder Land

Image

This was pretty much the vibe of Wonderland.

There was much more but the camera got packed away.  It was a little rainy on our last day at Acadia and we said out farewells and headed out into the night.
