Bar Harbor–June 28, 2009

This was our third visit to Bar Harbor, Maine and Acadia National Park.  We had visited the area in 2006 and 2008.  We took a morning tour that included a carriage ride on the crushed granite carriage roads build by John D. Rockefeller Jr. between 1913 and 1940.  For some information on the carriage roads, check out the NPS site here.  The ride took us from Wildwood Stables around Day Mountain.  The weather didn’t cooperate and more than half of the ride was in the rain.  We didn’t let the rain dampen our spirits and had a good time anyway.  After the carriage ride, we visited Jordan Pond, before returning to the town of Bar Harbor.

Our ship had to anchor in the harbor and we used tender boat to ferry from the ship to the town.

We enjoyed the quick visit to Bar Harbor.  We watched as the ship pivoted and then slowly left the harbor.
