Shore Path, Bar Island Hike and A Lobster Boil – Tuesday – July 16, 2013
Today – Bill, Pam, Syl, Tricia and Dan decided to do a couple short, level hikes in downtown Bar Harbor. I decided I needed a chill day, so Bill was given the camera and did a nice job capturing the adventure!!
Their first hike was the Shore Path. It begins at the Town Pier and meandered behind beautiful homes along the water to Wayman Lane. There they walked to Main Street to complete the loop back to the Town Pier.
Next, they walked down West Street and made a right onto Bridge Street. That took them to the access point for the sandbar to Bar Island. This hike has to be time properly. The sandbar is only accessible during low tide. They timed it perfectly and managed to get to the Summit of Bar Island. However, Bill said the views were very limited due to all the tall trees.
They were back at the campground by lunchtime and we just chilled the rest of the afternoon. For dinner, we had a wonderful invite from Karen and Al, who are working camping at Mt. Dessert Narrows Campground, to come to a Lobster Boil. This was a first for Bill and I. We really enjoyed ourselves!! Karen and Al had everything organized and it was fun to share this experience!!
Thanks for a great evening:o))
