We had a nice site. Campground is very large and great for walking. There's a dog walk with great views of the bay. Campground about 1/4 full with mostly RVs and trailers, very few tent campers.

... land of lobsters and blueberries so I figure when in Maine do as a …. Mainenite? I have to say the beer was pretty good. I did not taste any blueberries but the beer was good. In fact it was good enough that I ordered a second one. Had I been within walking/stumbling distance of the hotel it may not have stopped there.
Dinner over, it was time to go into Bar Harbor and scope it out. It took us a few minutes to find a ...
