Vacation in Maine Part 4 - Out and About in Maine!

Each time we visit Maine, we get to know the surroundings a bit better. This time we did some exploring in the town just across the river, Bath. It's really a neat place and Gretel sure enjoyed the farmer's market. She sat down right in front of this owl and didn't want to leave!

Casey and I left our little girl for our first overnight away and drove the two hours up to Bar Harbor to visit Acadia National Park. It was a beautiful drive, with the fall colors just beginning and plenty of neat little coastal Maine towns to explore on the way. We caught the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain in a very chilly and blustery Acadia at about 6AM the next morning. We were thus the first people to see the sunrise in the United States that day. Well, us and about 150 others . . . !
We later spent the day exploring the rest of the park, including a nice hike above Sand Beach with beautiful views.

Later in the week we all went to the Common Ground Fair in upstate Maine. It was a bit chilly but such a neat fair! We say lots of animals and lots of vegetables and even heard some great accordion music that Gretel and Grampy Frank really enjoyed.
