Bar Harbor Part 2

Friday morning after some blueberry pancakes we took a carriage ride through lovely Acadia National Park. Max didn’t let a little rain get in the way of his fun.
At the carriage house, Max enjoyed waving to the horses.
We drove up to the top of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the Atlantic Coast. Max liked standing on this ledge and looking at the map of the surrounding mountains.
We loved the hazy but amazing views.
We found out that Max takes more after Brittney’s family than he does Mark because he loves to hike. He wanted to walk all around the mountain.
And walk.
And walk some more.
He had a few near-wipeouts (and got a little scraped up), but he just laughed and got up and kept walking.

That was a lot of hiking!

Taking a break on Daddy’s shoulders.
Post-hike we ate some seafood and popovers at the Jordan Pond House on lovely Bubble Pond.
Back on Daddy’s shoulders.
After Max’s nap we went to Echo Lake, but the water was a little cold so Max preferred watching from the lifeguard tower instead of swimming.
We had another lobster dinner, this time right on the dock.
Mark was hoping for a 5 lb female, but we had to settle for the biggest lobsters they had – 1 ¾ lbs male. Big enough to share with Max.
Max liked looking at the harbor from the window ledge.
Max wanted to do a little more walking.

Back in Bar Harbor, we had some blueberry ice cream, listened to a bag piper, then headed back to the hotel room where we enjoyed this lovely view of the sunset.
While the boys slept, Brittney snuck out for some square dancing at the local library which Mark was devastated to miss. A long, full, fun day.

We know what you’re thinking, why didn’t they take more photos? Don’t worry, more pictures from the final day of the trip coming soon.
