We spent the first day in this area exploring the first Eastern National Park- Acadia National Park. We drove the loop trail, went to the top of Cadillac Mountain and also drove up to the Schoodic Peninsula All areas were beautiful and the weather was great.. As an added bonus we also saw at least five bald eagle while here, although all were well over 300 yards away.
On our second day here we took a tour on the Bailey Louise Todd.Ship out into French Bay. The-Bailey-Louise-Todd We also strolled around Downtown Bar Harbor enjoying the various galleries and shops.
Of last note is the large tidal differential in this area (almost 8 feet) we observed each day while here. Take a look at the sand bar to Bar Island. For a four hour period each day (2 hours on each side of the lowest tide) one can walk/drive out to Bar Island. But this lasts just 4 hours so you need to watch the tide charts carefully. Enjoy the pictures of this beautiful area.
