We became members of the Cadillac Mountain Sunrise Club along with a few other brave D&T friends: the Egregg and DHDB families. It was worth getting up at o'dark thirty, that's for sure!
Take a look...
We had a lot of fun hiking and biking. No pics from our ride on the carriage paths, but lots of hiking pics:
This is on the Beech Cliff trail. Echo Lake in the background, and after the hike we spent a while at the beach you can kind of see in the background.
The Beech Cliff trail has several ladders, which Theo loved.
We made it to the top!
Theo on the Ladder Trail up to Dorr Mountain.
So windy up there that the signpost was knocked over.
Time to climb back down.
We also went on a great whale watching boat cruise. We saw two species of whales, dolphins, porpoises (yes, they're different, but now I can't remember in what ways other than the dolphins were definitely more playful and even jumped out of the water.) Not everyone on the cruise did so well in the seasickness department, including Theo. He held up better than others, but after some complaints I got him some dramamine from the galley of the boat...and he spent the rest of the cruise like this:
yep, completely out. He said he had a great snooze!
On our way back into Bar Harbor. Some cool boats in the harbor, including that one with 4 masts in the distance in this pic.
We also had a great time hanging out with friends and T had a blast swimming in the pool at the campground, playing with friends, and doing kid stuff. We took a fun tour of the Atlantic Brewing Company (and tasting...and buying...) And we had a fantastic lobster dinner with the group...very tasty and I didn't have to get all freaked out cooking them myself!
