The Good and the Bad of Bar Harbor

... of your damn business!!!


Deborah's restaurant review:

First night we were there our host recommended a restaurant called Café This Way located on Mount Desert Street (actually tucked away in an alley off the street)… while it came with high praise we did not enjoy our dining experience. Considering the price, the food was not up to snuff (at least ours). We ordered The Littlebits as an appetizer and were expecting great things – we were let down, ...

Day 28 - The Cruise - Bar Harbor, Maine

... and walk off that enormous cone and soon found ourselves down by the beach. When the tide goes out in the morning, a natural sandbar appears between Bar Harbor and Bar Island, so along with several others on this warm and sunny day, Laetisha and I wandered across the sandbar and back again. It was surprising to note just how much the tide had come back in on our return trip, and even more about thirty minutes later when we sailed passed on our tender back to the ...

A Whale Hunting I will go

... t be used for whale watching, and the only whale watching boat going out was a small boat carrying only 20 passengers. It was a lot more money, but you get much closer to the whales and it was really my only choice. The weather wasn't supposed to be good any other day, so it was this or nothing. So I bit the bullet and paid the extra money. When I went to buy my ticket, there were only two seats left and I got one of them. Apparently the Gods were with me. Or so I ...

... hiking trails. The second one was a hoot with ranger Tod who had an alter ego Ted , whom he called his brother . Ted sang and played guitar and was very good. He changed the words to a few songs, one being the Beatles “hey jude” and made them more nature oriented. his talked was on the sounds of Acadia. He did bird songs and some mammal sounds. He was very funny and we both sang and laughed, I would pay money to see ranger Ted and ...

... if the whole hotel had to be booked out to house all the protective service guys?! Before dinner that night we had also driven all around the coastal drive, seeing more evidence of how the other half live. This included seeing several prominent American politicians houses, and that of former President George Bush senior. Apparently he and his wife spend most of their time here, rather than in Texas. A guardhouse, high fencing and an impressive looking black jet ...

    It's unique for us to be traveling without the motorhome, so we were pleased to find this cozy inn right in the middle of Bar Harbor at an affordable price. Although the bed didn't look like the Queen size described, it slept like one, and was firm, comfortable, and just what we needed. In the sunroom, a Keurig coffeemaker stood at the ready 24 hours a day, with a variety of coffees, teas, and decaf versions of both drinks, as well. The little cafe across the street was perfect for breakfast the next morning as we prepared for our second half-day exploration of Acadia National Park (5 minutes away). As an historic building, it's been beautifully updated and maintained for the comfort of today's guests. Cleanliness to the "nth" degree, and a welcoming manager/hostess. Their free Wi-Fi didn't work in the front lower level of the inn (we were in room 101).
