|Jordan Pond is a great place for a walk before indulging in the famous Jordan Pond House popovers.|
We planned our arrival date to coincide with the Taste of Bar Harbor's Pub Crawl (and if there is something I consider myself pretty good at it is pub crawl). We love the energy of Bar Harbor and the endless calendar of events – whether it is birding festivals, art walks, or wine tastings – we are set to try it all.
We hit the ground running trying to make the most of our time before work starts. The days have been filled with hiking the trails and carriage roads in Acadia National Park and our nights having dinner with Mark and friends. Our busy schedules mean that we haven't been spending much time around our campsite but from the people we have met we are sure to have a fun summer.
One of the reasons we picked Bar Harbor for three months is to spend time with Betsy's brother, Mark, (who runs the Maples Inn in downtown Bar Harbor) and other friends we have made over the years. We've introduced you to Mark before but in case you forgot here is a link to a past post about the Inn and a reminder picture.
Getting settled in a town you're familiar with is very pleasant and comfortable. We already know the important things like where the grocery store is, when the farmers market opens, where to drop recyclables, and who has the best clam chowder. As a bonus, our RV park is located just a short drive from an L.L. Bean Outlet store and there are 3 lobster pounds within a quarter mile. That's right, I said “three” lobster pounds within walking distance. At $5.49/pound I think we can justify eating lobster a couple of nights a week.
So stay tuned as we settle into a fun and familiar town where we can't wait to share our adventures as the summer pushes on. Some friends have already said they will stop by and see us and hopefully more of you will head this way so we can show you around a place we love. That is . . . on our days off.
