We had a short dinghy paddle (short YAY!) to the guest dock at Bar Harbor and checked with the harbor master to be sure we were in a good place. Waiting for us in the lawn just beyond the docks were Martha and Kyle; they had taken quite a detour along their travels from PA to NH for a family wedding they would attend on Sunday. There was a lot to see and do for Martha and Kyle’s visit, so we started by popping in and out of some downtown shops. It didn’t take long to find entertainment while we chatted to catch up on each other’s summer plans.
Brian and I suggested we explore the tide pools at Otter Cliffs. Kyle drove us into Acadia National Park in style behind the wheel of the Camero. We were a bit early for low tide, but still had success finding sea stars, snails, and crabs.
We awoke bright and early on Saturday morning to meet Martha and Kyle for breakfast at Jeannie’s Great Maine Breakfast. Jeannie wasn’t kiddin’ breakfast was great! Afterward we took another ride in the Camero to the trailhead for the Beehive Trail. We had the whole trail to ourselves and it was lovely! We bid our farewells afterward back in Bar Harbor. Martha loaded us up with her home-canned jams, peaches, pickles, and tomatoes. Thanks! We’re already looking forward to tasting those. Safe home, hope to see you again soon!
