Fun in Bar Harbor!

We had a great time in Bar Harbor! At first, Mark wanted to revisit what we did on our honeymoon, but we ended up doing almost all new things instead. One of the first things we did was go on a nature cruise of Acadia National Park. (Last time we took a trolley tour.) It was interesting to see the park from a completely different view point.

We stopped at Little Cranberry Island and visited a 200 year old fishing village. I can't imagine living on a tiny island year round! There are only about 40 year-round residents!

We had a very full itinerary for our trip, and while we were in Bar Harbor, we decided that we would cut out Prince Edward Island and come back to Bar Harbor after going to Nova Scotia. I wanted to stay a few extra days then, but the Cat didn't run from Bar Harbor on weekends, so we had to make it two separate trips.

When we went to make reservations for our room for the next week, we found out that it would then be considered "high season," i.e. our hotel room would cost $60 more! Needless to say, we had to go elsewhere. We ended up at the Wonder View Inn next door. The room was smaller, but other than that, it was fine. We had a small balcony overlooking the ocean. The view wasn't as great, but it was still good. Mark was excited because we got a room with a queen bed instead of a king. It saved us $10, and Mark said that he could actually find me at night!
