May 7 - 9.
On Saturday we drove from Richmond to Bar Harbor in Maine which is on Mt Desert Island and spent 2 days driving and walking Acadia National Park. The coastline is rugged granite rocks rising in some places to 100ft high.
One of the highlights was to drive to the summit of Mt Cadillac named after a Frenchman who lived on the island before founding Detroit and having a car named after him. You can see 360 degree views of the island and straight out to the Atlantic.
Another highlight was the walk to South Bubble, a granite rock, which has views over Jordan Pond. A fantastic site and well worth the climb to experience. We even had a warm sun to bathe under for for short time.
The weather was cold and blowing a strong wind on Monday so we spent most time in the van driving the loop road. Short walks to see vistas and take photos when appropriate. This is a lovely place and would be nice to see in the warmer months as well.
Our final morning was spent walking Bar Harbor and having breakfast in a funky little cafe. The afternoon saw us driving to Bangor, Maine for the evening. Catching up on emails and football scores after a day or so without connection.
