Enjoying a porch in Bar Harbor, Maine

That’s “Bah-Hah-Bah”, to the locals. Each time we have visited Bar Harbor, we end up staying at the same B&B. We spent many hours on this porch in the evening, working on photos and the blog. We love the old fashion feel of just kicking back, enjoying the outdoor weather, with no T.V., no radio..ah except for the modern day vices..our laptap! I guess we could have gone without it, but that didn’t sound like any fun.

Enjoying the Calm of Boothbay Harbor

I don’t know. With all the crazy weather and so many folks struggling to get back to normal in the Northeast, I just had to go through my arsenal of photos and find a more peaceful time when I was there. One early summer evening in Maine, when I was sitting on the harbor in Boothbay, enjoying the stillness of the unseasonably cool night, I took this photo. It’s nothing special. I just remember the peace I found just sitting there alone. I was actually freezing, while people back home in Phoenix, were unseasonable hot, smelting in the desert. A few days later in Maine it became unseasonably hot in the 90’s. We decided to cut our trip short because it became too hot in Maine. A 105 degrees in Phoenix feels better than 90 degrees in Maine. Go figure!

Most of us just want things to be normal. I wish for folks that our struggling with the cold and their losses, will soon find their normal again. Things always come back around. I guess that’s hard to believe when you’re sitting in the midst of a crisis. But it will happen.. in time!

Red Maple and Rhododendron in Bar Harbor, Maine

Daily Photo:

We’ve found early June, late May is a great time to visit Bar Harbor, Maine. Flowers are in full bloom and the tourist season hasn’t quite begun. Easy time to find B&B’s and we love the cooler weather and sitting out on porches at night. Don’t get much chance to do that in Phoenix in the summer. This sign leads down to a path that ends up at the bay. After dinner is a great time to walk along the bay and enjoy the sunset.

Rocky Shore of Acadia National Park, Maine

Daily Photo:

The rocky shores of Acadia made for a perfect foreground to the Atlantic Ocean. We took a day trip through Acadia and wished we had stopped on some previous trips through the area. Bar Harbor is one of our favorite destinations in Maine and right next door to Acadia National Park. Lobster anyone!

Lobster Shack in Bar Harbor, Maine

Daily Photo:

Where better to get lobster then in Maine. Everywhere you look you see promotions by local restaurants with Lobster on the menu. Some even promote two for one deals. Maine is a favorite destination in early June before the tourist season begins. B&B’s have room and the weather is usually good. Bar Harbor has a great walking trail along the bay that is fun to stroll after dinner. As you walk along the trail, you can check out the backyards of huge homes and see how the other half live. Pricey area and beautiful views. Who wouldn’t want to have a 2nd 0r 3rd home in this area.

Boothbay, Maine

As hot as it’s been, this photo of a foggy morning early in June sure felt better then the present muggy weather of Pittsburgh. I don’t look forward to the heat of Phoenix today as I travel back to Arizona to plan for our next get away adventure. Maybe the weather’s good in Hawaii?

Boothbay is a quaint New England town sitting on a bay, very picturesque and a great place to go and sit on a porch in one of their B&B’s, sip a hot chocolate and dream of the lobster you’re going to enjoy that evening. Got do that again soon!
