Bar Harbor: July 15, 2021
I got me some new shoes! Snazzy huh? So, follow me on this mornings walk along the shoreline trail. By the way, have I mentioned how sore my feet have been. These puppies are not use to being stood on for eight to ten hours and walking another three to four miles a day. I am not complaining, that's what Ibuprofen and Tylenol are for, it's all good!
I have to pass this ice cream shop whenever I leave my apartment. Believe it or not, I have not been in there. Most nights, the line is around the corner for a good block or two. This is only one of many ice cream paradises. I have not had lobster ice cream yet, but I'll be sure to keep to let you know when I do.
I brought two bottles of Michigan wine with me. I am going to have to go shopping soon. Found this little place this morning but did not have time to wonder in and check it out. There are some wineries in the area, so road trip in near future.
My pod buddies are beer drinkers . . . go figure.
Look what I discovered, a quiet little secluded park. It's not easy finding quiet little spots like this. The crowds here are amazing. I figure in time for pedestrian traffic when I walk to work. I read an article about a letter a woman from Boston wrote and sent to the Bar Harbor town council. In her letter she complained about all the visitors to Bar Harbor this year.
I love walking the shore path. It's about one-half mile along the shore and the scenery changes every day! If I walk early in the morning or later at night it is quiet and serene. The smell of the ocean air is a treat.
It was really foggy today. This is either the end or the beginning of the path, depending on where you start. This entrance is the furthest from town.
Little garden site along the way and getting closer to town.
It's been nearly three weeks since I have been here. I am really enjoying my time here, even though I work hard! I started this entry three days ago, but just now having time to finish it up.
On my way home from work, I checked out the kayaking tours. I love kayaking at home on the small rivers. I really need to try out kayaking here and plan to do so soon, so stay turned for that adventure.
I did get to Acadia National Park one day, just long enough to ride the bus around the park loop. It's just as crowded, if not more so, at the park as it is in Bar Harbor.
I am hoping in the fall it lightens up a bit, however then the colors will be calling to everyone to visit.
I wish you all could have just a slice of this juicy delicious experience. Let me know if you are going to join me next year. In the mean time, I wish you all much joy!
Love from Baa Haabor xoxoxo!
