Acadian Cool Blue Sky (SWF)

Cadillac Mt. Acadia NP-kab

Bar Harbor as seen from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park

At the beginning of June Gus and I drove to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park on Mt. Desert Island off the coast of Maine. We went there to celebrate our 34th Wedding Anniversary since this was the place we went on our honeymoon all those years ago. After driving along the coastline we turned inland and upwards to the top of Cadillac Mountain. It is a relatively easy drive to the top and the views are spectacular. The wind was blowing quite strongly on this day and with the temperature dropping we were quite cold, so we didn’t stay long. After the long drive from the day before and having spent most of the morning and early afternoon watching birds and exploring the coast we decided to head back to the cabin for an afternoon nap. Good choice since the sky soon opened up and poured down rain. It was a lovely day all around!

Happy Skywatch Friday!
