The Good and the Bad of Bar Harbor

A travel blog entry by rollingstone54


... was OK but definitely not great. This continued into the main course as Karl's pork chop was overcooked, his potato's were cold and my Chick Pea Curry dish over cauliflower - boiled and crumbled - was tasteless. I actually sent it back – something I never do. I had the mixed salad instead and it was again OK but nothing to write home about. We went away disappointed and certainly did not get the value that we paid for the meal as it is a pricey place. To their credit they did ...

... layover, I hope to send this link off to you all via email BUT, my capabilities don't end there. I have learned that I can use this lovely mini as a Skype phone and call any of you for a mere fraction of a phone call cost .

The next stop was the lobster pound at the end of the drive here ...

Mainely driving!

... I think. We have just been out on deck and as a result of it getting dark early here and being on an island away from big towns, there is an amazing display of stars although just 9.30 and the moon reflected on the water is stunning.

So, I think we will have a good week here. Whether we can prise Phil off the deck is a question yet to be answered. We will do our usual getting bearings and planning our week tomorrow and see where the week takes ...
