|After leaving CT. and it's Lobster Rolls,we headed for Bar Harbor,ME.
When we arrived at our campground on the Island of Mt.Desert,we were anxious to start exploring the area.
After getting our RV set up,we did some sight seeing. We soon found out that checking out the Harbors,Acadia Nat. Park,and other interesting sights,would take some time. So we planned on at least a couple of weeks to check out the areas. It's a tough job ,but someone has to do it.:):)
One of our first stops was in the little village of Bar Harbor. This interesting little village sitting on the bank of Frenchman's Bay,was easy to like. We walked the "shoreline walk" and watched the beautiful sailboats in the Bay along with the Lobster fishing boats. There were so many sights to take in,we knew we had to make at least one more trip through that village in the near future. We also could see a Maine Lobster Roll in our future.:):) We wanted to compare the ME. Roll to the CT. Roll.LOL
Just couldn't think of a better excuse to eat another Lobster Roll.:):)
There are many Harbors on the Island and we covered several,but not all of them. Also checked out several Light Houses.
We made several day trips up and down the ME.coast, traveling about 100 miles each way.
During these trips we visited Campobello Island,Canada. Here we toured FDR's summer home,which had 18 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. We then checked out the Island and found two Light Houses and more Harbors. We even saw a couple of whales in the water by one of the light houses,which made our day.
The other day trips we made found us looking at more beautiful harbors and Light Houses. There are 70 Light Houses along the coast of ME., and no, we didn't see them all. This just gives us an excuse to make another trip to ME.in the future.:):) We both thought that ME. is one of the most beautiful states that we've seen so we will be back sometime in the future.
Soon we will be heading across Maine,New Hampshire,and Vermont,so fasten your seat belt,hang on, and look for more adventures with the Kirk's on the open road ahead.
