After returning to Maryland and back to regular life. It’s hard to beat the amazing two weeks spent on Mount Desert Island in Maine. Everything here seems so mundane and my memories are so fresh of wonderful moments on the island.
During my stay, I didn’t share that when uploading my images to wordpress, the connection was a slow broadband. It would take up to an hour to load only six images. By the time the photos were available to place into a post, the creative juices to write were all dried up.
Spending just a few days here before heading south to Florida, I’ve been busy getting caught up with life, so didn’t have time to capture something new and interesting today. So allow me to share some of my favorite moments in Acadia.
Like eating a lobster lunch at Stewman’s Lobster Pound in downtown Bar Harbor on their waterfront dock.
Grabbing a handful of ripe Maine wild blueberries while on the trail.
Enjoying beautiful blue skies and even bluer lakes. Shimmering in the sun.
Foggy mornings, and mist covered mountains and evergreen forests.
Enjoying beautiful birds and blooms.
The seaside with the granite filled land lined with fragrant balsam firs.
Charming dinghy’s waiting dockside to take their owners to bigger water vessels.
And best of all, glorious sunrises and sunsets.
The wildlife kept me entertained. With the mushroom stealing red squirrel, the chipmunk that was so brave and ran between my legs. The two does and their fawns walking across the road. Multiple birds and several ‘lifers.’
An early morning with blueberry pancakes and maple syrup to fuel me for a half-day cruise to see whales and puffins.
The evening with Harbor dolphins playing in the harbor, and a harbor seal in the distance. While the rain lightly fell and created a double rainbow. With the backdrop of a stunning sunset.
Maine was completely glorious and I truly wish that each and everyone of you can make it there someday. It is truly paradise. Bella
