    Our port of call today is the smallest port on this trip - Bar Harbor, Maine. It has a population of only 5000 but of course, cruise ship days can almost double it like today with our ship and a HAL ship, the Masdam, in port. Bar Harbor is on an island called Mount Desert Island - Maine is home to over 3100 islands. We took the Lighthouse by jet boat excursion which transports you to 5 different lighthouses in 2 1/2 hrs. We also glimpsed some 'cottages' owned by the rich and famous, such ...

    ... the view despite the rain.

    After the loop road (took about 2 hours), we picked a hike I had read had the best view of Somes Sound. Somes Sound is one of the only fjords in North America (Bar Harbor claims it is the only one, but there are a few other sounds in the states including Washington and this little river called the Hudson). Technicalities aside, the Sound was suppose to be gorgeous but hard to see, so up we ...

    ... day before we were swimming in 58 degree weather), and then concluded the days activities with a hike on the trails around Sand Beach. The beginning of the hike was mostly wooded paths, but gradually became more rocky as we made our ascent (which is more enjoyable for the kids...they love to climb all the rocks!)

    The final day began with an early morning pool session and then a late big breakfast at Two Cats. During our vacation we had learned how the town got ...
