My Marmot tent leaks in the corners. My packing is minimal but I didn't have room for shoes, I mean it's summer . . .
So I changed into my walking sandals, put on my rain pants and wore my hi-vis rain jacket . It was decided to say another day here and wait out the rain. We took the free shuttle bus into Historic downtown Bar Harbor
about a half hour later we joined the other tourists and meandered the streets. Lots of shops to browse and many restaurants.
signs offering Lobsters are everywhere
No we didn't eat here
there are many colourful shops near the harbour
and I couldn't help singing to myself as I noticed this sign . I was getting hungry as we didn't have breakfast, nor lunch so I had a quick snack. Here is a $13. bowl of Lobster soup. I must say that there are lots of Lobster pieces in there. MMmmm, Delicious
Eventually it was time to return home but first we had to have dinner. We chose this 60s diner
Service was too good and too fast. Lots of memorabilia in there . I look at the dinner specials
Eventually my steamed Lobster arrives, too hot to hold. It's a bit messy but I manage
to dig out all the meat. Maine is also known for their blueberries so we shared half a piece. The crust wasn't that good
but we are leaving Maine tomorrow and this is our last chance
Earlier we took a stroll around the waterfront to snap a few photos. The fog had rolled in and the 4 masted schooner was grounded and all tours cancelled
Later as we were leaving town the fog was moving into the downtown area. Half way back to our campsite, the windshield wipers on our bus were doing double duty. The rain had come back
