Day 4 (Friday)

Acadia National Park-finally. Even through mist and fog, Acadia is gorgeous. Great visitor’s center before you enter the park, helpful staff, maps, drive along Park Loop Road, parked cars here and there, where people are hiking trails, tide-pooling, checking out the beauty of the park. Rocks, rocks, more rocks.. black and brown, red, grey, slate, white, spotted, layers upon layers… crooked and jagged trees sticking out from the rocks… waves slowly and sometimes quickly rolling in and back out along with the tide… lobster buoys, lobster boat, lobsterwoman, anemone cave, little girl, starfish, barnacles, iridescent tips of seaweed, tide pools, crashing waves… Sand Beach, our rock tower, Ocean Path hike to Thunder Hole/Thunder Flop, “you can’t miss it!”, dogs, Jordan Pond House-eating outdoors, popovers & chili, strawberry jam, coffee, waterbowls for dogs, Bubbles, kids playing, missing Kajsa and Jim and Abby, Carriage House Road and paths, Carriage House and gates…
