We still had a two hour drive from Quebec City to the USA border and, unfortunately, we didn't think ahead about getting gas. Figuring there would be nothing but trees and moose between Quebec City and Bangor, I pulled off the highway at the biggest town I could find to fuel up. The station was extremely clean and everyone looked normal. The gas …
We took the Ocean Path Trail from Otter Point to Sand Beach. It was a beautiful hike of just over 2 miles along the rocky coast of the Atlantic Ocean. There were several coves and one place called Thunder Hole where the water comes into the rocks and bounces off the rocks making a sound just like thunder.
We had taken our lunch and as we were eating we watched some rock/cliff climbers. It was cool to watch but isn't ...
... but I really wanted to see a seal. So, I was a happy sailor! Last night while we were walking through the town, we smelled the delightful smell of pizza - Sidestreet style! So, as soon as we got off the sailboat we found that great smell again. After our yummy pizza, we had one more stop to make in Boothbay. We found out that the rock church we were looking for was literally just around the corner from where we turned around the night ...
... of the sea against the rocky shores of Maine. On calm days you may wonder what the fuss is all about. But wait until the waves kick up a few notches. Thunder Hole is a small inlet, naturally carved out of the rocks, where the waves roll into. At the end of the inlet, down low, is a small cavern where, when the rush of the wave arrives, air and water is forced out like a clap of distant thunder. Water may spout as high as 40 feet with ...
... in Main Street. This is where most of the shops, restaurants and cafés are. I wandered through the stores and pick up my little Christmas ornament. Eventually I ended up back where I started. I went back to the sand bar to find it fully accessible. So I walked over to bar island. Here I followed the trail up to the summit where you get a view back across the harbor.

TravelPod Member ReviewsWonder View Inn Bar Harbor
Wonder View Inn and Suites is the perfect place to stay for guests who want to enjoy excitement of downtown, but prefer to retire to the "country" for bedtime. Situated on top of a hill, less than a 12 minute walk from downtown Bar Harbor, the Wonder View Inn and Suites provided us the perfect oasis without breaking the bank. Wonder View rooms include a refrigerator, access to a pool, continental breakfast in the lobby, enjoyment of the glass-encased restaurant for food or cocktails and access to it's sister resort, the Bluenose, next door. For those lucky enough to have the 38-45 rooms, you will have a fantastic view of the Harbor (particularly on the 4th of July!) from your balcony.
