The final leg of our northeast family vacation was spent in the glorious Southwest Harbor, Maine. We had a darling cabin nestled in a quiet little neighborhood, just steps from the harbor. Most days, we ventured into Acadia National Park, a short drive away. Between the hiking, exploring, crabbing, boating, and all manner of FUN...we had such a memorable and wonderful time.
If you've never visited Maine, I would highly suggest spending some time there in the summer or fall months (at least a week to really enjoy it). I love the costal areas especially, such as the picturesque town of Camden or the historical area of Penobscot. Staying close to Acadia was really a treat, as we frequented the park so often, biking the carriage roads and hiking the trails. Bar Harbor is another great spot on Mt. Desert Island, but a tad touristy...great for shopping and eating though!
After this trip (which my third time in Maine), I half-way jokingly mentioned to Blake that we need to figure out how to have a home up there. In my dreams! But really...it's THAT amazing! I described it to someone the other day as "feeling like you're in another country". I hope and pray we have many more memories to make as a family visiting the state of Maine, and who knows...maybe even someday call it home.
Or summer home. ;)
