Hanging with the Main-e-acs

Acadia National Park is one of the most popular and busiest vacation spots on the East Coast. The park has just two campgrounds (although there are many private parks on Mount Desert Island (MDI) should make a reservation waaaay in advance if you want to assure yourself a place to stay. WE DIDN'T. Until about a week before we were headed up. We got 3 nights with the promise we could check back daily for cancellations. This is fine with us, we are flexible, right? RIGHT. Blackwoods Campground is beautiful....our spot #82 was a pull electric water or sewer, but for $10.00 a night, we were thrilled.
Our very nice spot

There's been a lot of rain, but it is still so pretty. This is the entry gate to Blackwoods.
free transportation all over the island on these buses powered by propane!
The sun came out and our solar worked like a champ. We spent four days AND nights here and our battery remained fully charged. Hooray!!!
Our first day we went into Bar Harbor for...
....this lobster Cobb salad....
...and this burger. We remembered from last year and we were not disappointed!
I re- visited the tea more good tea, a teapot and a cozy!
Bar Harbor has to be one of the most picturesque places in America.
This is where we ate
The flowers were gorgeous
lots and lots of good places to eat...and drink😊;-)

Tomorrow, we take you on a walk to the rocky coast of Maine. YOU WILL LOVE IT!


  1. Wow, you are sure a long way away from Quartzsite, in more ways than just distance. Gorgeous tho.

    1. Hi Glenda, yes we are a long way from Q.! A totally different kind of scenery, still both have their beauty and we just soak it up. The temps here are so cool and, in January, we will be soaking up the beauty of the southwest once again...while the snow and ice are up here! Gotta love this nomad life, right?
