Bar Harbor Youth Hostel
On the morning of Friday, May 28, 2010 -- after 12 hours of driving -- I stepped out of the Town-and-Country minivan with my friends and cousin to take my first breath of fresh North Atlantic sea breeze. I finally made it to Acadia National Park! Excited like a child in a candy store, I ran to the most scenic spot I could find … reached down into my backpack for the Canon 7D ... composed my shot ... and nothing happened. In my rush to a lecture at the Robert F. Kennedy Building in Washington D.C., I realized that I had left the camera battery on my desk. LoL!! **Unbelievable**
Fortunately, I had a point-and-shoot spare and my friends have theirs; these photos are from their cameras. Together we explored the town of Bar Harbor, the quaint cafes, the park's high peaks, and the pounds....the lobster pounds. At $2.99 to $4.99 a pound depending on the size, I had my fill of the freshest American Lobsters. We even saw a rare blue & yellow one. Maine strictly prohibits the sale of lobsters of 5 lbs. or greater, but they somehow mysteriously make it to the market in other states. Hmmmm...
I hope you'll get to visit this jewel in northern New England. Safe travel everyone!
