Evans Escapades in Acadia National Park–The Park Loop Road

This is our last week here,
so we wanted to make one last loop
around the park, and get those pics
we felt we had missed. . .

no matter what time of day we have been there,
there is always someone climbing
up and down the Otter Cliff face. . .
Dave would so love to join them. . .
ummmm. . .not happening Babe. . .sorry!
Iconic Acadia National Park - Otter Beach - Otter Cliffs - Cobblestones
I was utterly intrigued by the Cobblestone Beaches. . .
and by the story that ships would come and load tons and tons
of cobblestones to take down to Boston and ports beyond. . .
in fact. . .the cobblestones of any street you see in the
New England Area probably came from the beaches of Maine. . .
and when the surf comes in and out. . .
the cobblestones roll, and make the most amazing sound. . .

everywhere you go along the beaches,
you will see these little rock pile creations. . .

Dave loved them so much,
he created a couple of his very own. . .

Bubble Pond Bridge - Roosevelt Bridges
Bubbles Pond Bridge
very, very popular place to bike. . .
no parking to be found. . .I jumped out to get the pic

glad we got to see it. . .
Duck Brook Pond Bridge
Duck Brook Pond Bridge. . .also easily accessible. . .yaaaa!

a pretty little bubbling brook at Duck Brook Pond Bridge - reminded us of the streams in Colorado high country
and a pretty little bubbling brook,
which flowed under Duck Brook Pond Bridge. . .
reminded us of the beautiful streams
found everywhere in the Colorado High Country. . .
Wild Turkeys - Acadia National Park
a huge surprise on our way back into town. . .
these wild turkeys crossing the road
probably half a mile from Bar Harbor. . .

Late lunch at Jordan's with Paul and Margery Zeller, David, Janice
and the last treat of the day. . .
a late lunch at Jordan’s with RV friends Paul and Margery,
whom you will remember we also met up with in Niagara Falls. . .

We’ve had a great time comparing notes with them these past two weeks,
and although we haven’t done any touring together,
several afternoons we’ve had what Margery refers to as
our debriefings. . .LOL. . .
we’ve usually gone different directions during the day,
so we compare notes, decide if it was, or was not worth repeating. . .
I can honestly say, there have been very few duds in this part of the country. . .

We’re gonna miss Margery and Paul when they leave in a couple of days,
but think our paths will cross at least one more time in Cape Cod. . .
yaaa. . .a last supper there. . .ha ha!

‘til next time,
Janice and Dave
