Today we arrived at Mt Desert Narrows Camping in Bar Harbor. It's a nice campground right on a lake, so the views are spectacular. Once my folks arrived we headed into town to meet with Rob and Kris for dinner and a ghost tour.
Dinner was amazing but the ghost tour we bought on Groupon was pretty corny. The one good thing about ghost tours is that you tend to see more of the town your in then maybe you would have just walked around on your own. Plus you get a bit of history. Sadly, this one was lacking in history. No worries, we had fun with our friends no matter what.
The next morning we drove through Acadia National Park. It's beautiful! We drove up Cadillac Mountain, taking tons of photos the whole way up. You really need to follow us on Instagram to see our photos. Follow us @theburkhartsabroad.
For the afternoon, we drove to Southwest Harbor in hopes of stopping by the Coast Guard Exchange. Sadly, it wasn't open, however, the biggest surprise was how pleasant the town was. It was the perfect seaside small town. I, of course, pulled up Zillow to see how expensive it would be to live there... It still seems to be out of our price range. It really is an adorable town - lots of water everywhere.
We decided to drive into the town and walk around, check out the shops, eat some homemade blueberry pie from a cafe, and we even found a FREE wine tasting. If there is a wine tasting anywhere to be found, Keith and I will find it! (That may be our superpower if we were to have one...)
That night we headed over to Rob and Kris' campground and grilled out for dinner. It was lovely to spend time with them - they are always enjoyable to be around. Sadly, we won't be seeing them again on this trip so we tried to get in as much time as we could.
On our last night in town, we met at 2cats for breakfast with Rob and Kris. Then we all wandered around the town, while Linda shopped and my Dad relaxed and chatted with strangers.
For our last meal, we met at a BBQ and Lobster spot - Smokey's BBQ & Lobster. My dad is trying to get in as much lobster as he can before we leave Maine. I think he succeeded! We enjoyed our meal but enjoyed the company even more. We will miss Rob and Kris, but don't worry, I am sure we will meet up again soon!
Tomorrow we head to Vermont - a state Keith and I have never been to - should be fun!
