Testa’s — A Great Place for Lobster

Monday will conclude not only our visit to Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park, it will also conclude our look at this particular Holland America cruise aboard the MS Maasdam. I hope you’ve enjoyed our journey from Montreal.

It's a TRAP!

In today’s series you’ll see not only Bar Harbor and Acadia, you’ll find a new subject — Egg Rock Light — a lighthouse we encountered on our departure from Frenchman Bay and our turn south for Boston.

Red Rocks, Crashing Waves, and an almost Alien Landscape


A Rocky Start

A Rocky Start

On Monday we took a look at the forests of Acadia. Today we head for the shore and some breathtaking scenery.

The skies were relentlessly overcast during our stay here, but somehow it seemed to fit once we got to the shoreline. I’m not sure I would have gotten the same “mood” if we had “lucked out” and gotten blue skies and bright sunshine.

A Cloudy Day

About the only thing I could have wished for would have been rougher water and waves that crashed against the rocks with just a tad more energy. Nevertheless, I wasn’t disappointed with what we got that day.

Hitting the Bus for Acadia National Park

Ursula was just itching to get out of Bar Harbor and into the Acadia National Park. And since we would have ample time to explore the town later in the day, off we went.

One of the first things to strike a visitor is the lush green everywhere one looks. It’s almost reminiscent of a tropical rain forest with pines.

But as beautifully lush as the forest is, that’s nothing compared to what you’ll see on Wednesday. Prepare yourself for the rocky shoreline for which Maine is famous. Until then, here is today’s photo gallery slide show:
