Bar Harbor, Maine #7

Leaving Deer Isle behind, I trek over to Mt. Desert Island which is about a 30 minute drive from Blue Hill where I was staying at a small inn there. I pull into Bar Harbor, a busy little tourist destination where many tourists travel from all over the world to take in the "true" Maine way of life. I hiked the shore path along the bay which is about a mile in length. It was coming up on dusk as I arrived at the harbor via the shore path, just in time to see the Schooner Mary Day boarding for an evening cruise out in Penobscot Bay. Bar Harbor is a great little town to visit and see all of the sights and shop in some of the many shoppes in the town. Also as you leave Bar Harbor, you can take the direct route south which leads into Acadia National Park. Enjoy!

Postscript: I want to thank everyone who has commented on my Maine photos. I drove from Louisville, Kentucky to Downeast, Maine in my car, by myself, with my trusty Pentax in tow, for a seven day vacation. The longest road trip I've ever taken alone. It was worth every moment, with the possible exception of when I couldn't find a hotel for hours on end on the way home from Maine, as I was crossing the Poconos and there was a Nascar event that evening in the area. I had to pay hefty for a room that night, but by the time I finally found a room, needless to say money was no object . . . well within reason anyway.
