Summer’s winding down, but still some great days left to enjoy the Maine Coast!

schoodic

My good friend Rick has a convertible and a few days ago the weather was outstanding, so he and I went on a road trip to the Schoodic Peninsula, part of Acadia National Park that’s on the mainland a little more than an hour from Searsport. Some of the wave swells came crashing in on the granite point, raising spectacular splashes that went high in the air. Of course, I wasn’t able to capture any of that action, so I had to settle for this nice shot.

From Schoodic we traveled to Bar Harbor, where there were two large cruise ships in port that day! It was quite a surprise to see the two ships, each with their tenders ferrying passengers to and from the wharf in downtown Bar Harbor. As we walked around downtown looking for a place to have lunch, we heard many languages being spoken. And as you might imagine, most of the restaurants were quite full. We ended up at Leary’s Landing Irish Pub, where I had fish & chips and Rick enjoyed his shepherd’s pie. They have a great selection of brews and a full bar.

In all, a great day on the road!
