Central - and Cozy!

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).

... out of the Side Street cafe with " I'm never going to over eat again" agony and went in search of a DC to make the pain go away. As the rain clouds started to move in, we said goodbye to the Atlantic and pointed due west, searching for a campsite for the evening. Stopping at a tourist info outside of Bangor, we received yet another abundant gift from the universe. Asking about local camp spots, we met Jim Corliss who invited us to camp at his Christmas tree farm, Piper ...

Tuesday Date Night

Last night Mark and I had an impromptu date night in the Bar Harbor area. It would be nice to take a long(er) car ride together knowing we were in no rush and our final destination was not another hotel.  After an abbreviated 3 mile run through the "burbs" of Bangor, we hopped in the car and drove almost an hour to Trenton, Maine to visit the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound (same place my mom and I visited this past weekend). Mark had never been ...

We arrived in Bar Harbor to the coldest weather of the season. Bundled in layers, we headed to the tenders for the transfer to the island. We were surprised to find a quaint town with multicolored buildings, plenty of picture posing places for tourists, and friendly people. Bar Harbor is located on Mount Desert Island and is so named because of the large sandbar in the middle of the harbor. One can walk or drive across the harbor via the sandbar for two hours a ...

... spent the summers there, building huge estates and mansions. That era of extravagance ended with a terrible fire in 1947 that raged for 10 days across the island, destroying many of these magnificent estates. It was thanks to the power, influences and money of these social elite, however, that the preservation of the island has been set in place. Much of the credit goes to the ahead of his time conservationist George Dorr, who in 1901, formed a corporation that ...

... with an insight into the history and previous residents of the island. Ten minute tour and we were back on the street. As we wandered up to the combination country store and post office we passed an honest to goodness lemonade stand! The proprietor was a darling little ten year old girl, who, being a shrewd business person, had diversified into offering to paint fingernails also! I passed.

Returning from Little Cranberry at around 6 p.m., we returned to ...
