Angela and I took the trike into Acadia National Park and stopped at the visitor center to get brocures, especially on hiking.  We watched a movie on the park and bought a book with a map on hiking, biking and paddling.  Afterward we rode over to the western side of the park away from Bar Harbor where the ranger said there would not be as many people.  We decided on the Flying Mounain hike and although the parking lot was full of cars the number of people we ran into was not a problem.  We met some interesting people, one who was born with no arms.  We walked behind him for 15 minutes or so and talked to him a lot.  He was being led by his 5 year old grandson so we were going slow enough for me to keep up.  It was only a 284 ft climb but pretty steep to get there.

Afterward we rode along the road to Seawall and on to Bass Head Light where we walked down to the lighthouse.  Then we stopped in at the Seal Cove Auto Museum.  Angel wasn't too interested but was going to humor me but she enjoyed it.  There was lots of things to read about the history of the cars so she read them all.  I mainly took pictures and read the highlights.  There were some very nice old cars, none newer than 1928.

When we got back to the campground David joined us and we went out for a lobster dinner and had to choose between 10 ways to prepare it.  We all chose the standard boiled lobster with two vegetables.
