Acadia National Park

I'd never been to Maine before, and while I knew that Acadia was the first national park east of the Mississippi, I did not know that it is located on an island off the coast. It is home to stunning natural beauty, both of the ocean and the woods varieties. We drove through the park, hiked, visited a beach, explored the tide pools, picked wild blueberries... and every night ate some of the freshest and most delicious seafood I've had (lobsters, of course, and haddock, clams, mussels, crabs, shrimp and scallops... only oysters are conspicuously absent).

Here are some photos from our hike:


Acadia is a beautiful place, and its something-for-everyone-ness makes for a great family vacation. We will definitely be back!

That looks beautiful!!!! Jeff and I would love to visit there. I'm sure Sadie had a blast. I remember the seafood when my family traveled to Maine and the lobster was fantastic. Thanks for sharing some great photos!
