Acadia – Cadillac Mountain

I can’t believe it is August already.  Chelsea’s baby Geno is a few weeks old now and Lindsay should be popping Max out within the next few weeks.  Time is flying by so fast.  Soon it will be one year that we’ve been traveling.  When I retired I truly thought time would slow down.    I think it is going faster.

We went back to Acadia, Cadillac Mountain.  This time, there were parking spaces open, we parked, and I got out to take some awesome pictures.  Even though it was a little hazy my pictures came out pretty good.  There is so much beauty in this area of Maine.

The pine trees were so green and made a good addition to the next few pictures.

My Lumix is a still picture camera that also has a good zoom.  I previously showed you a picture taken with my Sony CamCorder that has a really good zoom.  Using my Lumix, I zoomed in on the yacht that was a good mile or two away.

Storyboards tell the story of Acadia.  Cadillac Mountain is located on Mount Desert Island, within Acadia National Park, in the U.S. state of Maine.

 

Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre Atlantic coast recreation area primarily on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Its landscape is marked by woodland, rocky beaches, and glacier-scoured granite peaks such as Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the United States’ East Coast. Among the wildlife are moose, bear, whales, and seabirds. 

The drive up the mountain and then back down is as beautiful as the views from the very top of Cadillac Mountain.

Still being in the Acadia National Forest and off of Rt 3 there is a beautiful cove.  Not knowing anything about ocean tides, it appears to me that the tide is out.  Each time we pass this cove the water is at the same level.  This appears to be a very popular place because each time we pass this cove, we see lots of people wading in the water.

The road trip was pleasant. The pups were very well behaved.  We are amazed at how well they ride in the truck with us.

God Bless, Stay Safe and Be Kind to Every Kind.

The pups were very playful before bedtime and Joe Spider settled in for a rainy, windy night.
