While in Bar Harbor we are staying at the Narrows Too Campground. We chose this park for one reason and one reason only – because that’s where Nancy & Betsy were staying! Since we’re staying for a month, we ponied up for a waterfront site. The site was designed to be a back-in site, but to take advantage of the view we pulled straight in.
One afternoon we took a drive down to Bass Harbor and had lunch at Thurston’s Lobster Pound. We both had crab rolls and sat outside sipping on beers enjoying this view.
We’ve been eating lots of lobster in restaurants, but one thing we really wanted to do was buy our own and cook it at ourselves. Betsy and Nancy are experts in this area, so they bought some for us we had a lobster cook out at our site. I’ll admit the thought of cooking live lobsters still makes me a little squeamish. Deas and Nancy however seemed to get some pleasure out of playing with these poor little creatures that we about to become our delicious dinner. We also made some new friends this week – Corey and Jen of Jeep Gypsies – and they joined us for this fun evening.
One of the most popular places in Acadia is Cadillac Mountain, which at 1,528 point is the highest point on the Atlantic seaboard. It’s a famous place to watch the sunrise, but since the sun rises at 4:30 here I haven’t quite been able to get myself out of bed that early. You can either hike or drive to the top of the mountain – so far we’ve only done the drive. Even without the pretty colors of a sunrise, it’s still a pretty great view.
