This is our last week here,
so we wanted to make one last loop
around the park, and get those pics
we felt we had missed. . .
Sand Beach in morning light. . .
a reflection of The Beehive
Otter Cliffs as viewed from Sand Beach
Otter Cliffs as viewed from Thunder Hole. . .
Coastal Maine – being there just never gets old
love watching the water and hearing the sound of the waves
Otter Cliffs in the early morning sun. . .
no matter what time of day we have been there,
there is always someone climbing
up and down the Otter Cliff face. . .
Dave would so love to join them. . .
ummmm. . .not happening Babe. . .sorry!
I was utterly intrigued by the Cobblestone Beaches. . .
and by the story that ships would come and load tons and tons
of cobblestones to take down to Boston and ports beyond. . .
in fact. . .the cobblestones of any street you see in the
New England Area probably came from the beaches of Maine. . .
and when the surf comes in and out. . .
the cobblestones roll, and make the most amazing sound. . .
everywhere you go along the beaches,
you will see these little rock pile creations. . .
Dave loved them so much,
he created a couple of his very own. . .
Iconic Acadia National Park. . .
this is the shot you see in the calendars. . .just beautiful. . .
Sand Beach as viewed from the Ocean Walk. . .down by Thunder Hole
a pretty little waterfall just down from the Park Loop Road. . .
and we got in a few more bridges to add to my collection. . .
Triad – Day Bridge connects the Triad Mountain
to the Day Mountain Carriage Road. . .
Bubbles Pond Bridge
very, very popular place to bike. . .
no parking to be found. . .I jumped out to get the pic
while Dave circled the parking lot. . .
glad we got to see it. . .
Duck Brook Pond Bridge. . .also easily accessible. . .yaaaa!
a view of “The Bubbles” from Duck Brook Pond Bridge
and a pretty little bubbling brook,
which flowed under Duck Brook Pond Bridge. . .
reminded us of the beautiful streams
found everywhere in the Colorado High Country. . .
a huge surprise on our way back into town. . .
these wild turkeys crossing the road
probably half a mile from Bar Harbor. . .
and our last stop of the day. . .
Porcupine Islands as viewed from the Compass Harbor Overlook. . .
and the last treat of the day. . .
a late lunch at Jordan’s with RV friends Paul and Margery,
whom you will remember we also met up with in Niagara Falls. . .
We’ve had a great time comparing notes with them these past two weeks,
and although we haven’t done any touring together,
several afternoons we’ve had what Margery refers to as
our debriefings. . .LOL. . .
we’ve usually gone different directions during the day,
so we compare notes, decide if it was, or was not worth repeating. . .
I can honestly say, there have been very few duds in this part of the country. . .
We’re gonna miss Margery and Paul when they leave in a couple of days,
but think our paths will cross at least one more time in Cape Cod. . .
yaaa. . .a last supper there. . .ha ha!
‘til next time,
Janice and Dave
