One last chance












We wanted to make one last walk through the shopping district of Bar Harbor and walk the shoreline trail around the waterfront of town. This gives you a nice view of the water and some of the homes and hotels. As we were walking the trail a huge sail yacht, I would guess around 120 feet, was mooring. I can only fantasize what it would be like to live on a boat that size. Unfortunately, we only had the point and shoot camera with us.

Anneke wanted to give lobster another chance, and ordered the traditional boiled lobster meal at a nice waterfront restaurant. Again it did not meet her expectations and she decided that this was her last lobster.

Based on the weather forecast, we will spend one extra day here before starting our trip south and west.

Thanks for a final look at Bar Harbor. Where are you headed next? Hope it's some place we haven't seen before, to add to our at least virtual visits!

Awesome pics -- I'm with Anneka, just can't bring myself to like lobster! Happy you found our blog:)

I'm with Anneke on the Lobster! There are lots of things on the menu I'd order before lobster that's for sure.

Nice pics of Bar Harbour and the yachts.

Still, don't you think lobster in Maine is sort of a must do? I'm glad you gave it a second chance. I much prefer shrimp or really good big crab legs, but will definitely eat some lobster when in Maine.

Anneke was certainly geared up properly for her second and last try. Welcome to the non-lobster fan club.

Ok, I'm on the other side of all of you. That lobster looked delicious! I love lobster and will order it anytime I can afford it! :)
I've never been to Maine (yet) but I know I'll have it several times once I get there :)

Sorry to hear Anneke doesn't like lobster, but make sure she doesn't say that out loud while you're still in Maine. They might run you out on a rail... ;c)

Are lobsters always that BIG??

I guess we know what Anneke thinks of lobster, but how about you?

Personally, I love it when it's cooked properly. Can't say the same for that green stuff that comes out though. :)

Do you normally like lobster? Al has always loved lobster, and had it as a treat now and then back on Long Island (I don't eat seafood at all). He had the maine lobster when we went to Acadia, there was a man at the campground all set up who served lobster dinners, two for $34.00. We were there Columbus Day weekend, and Al got his last lobster dinner of the season. he said it was the best, sweetest lobster meat he's ever had. he feels its the colder waters and cooking in sea water that made it so good.

Enjoyed the tour of Bar Harbor. Got to say I'm with Anneke-I really have never developed a taste for lobster. Of course we've never been to Maine yet-maybe that will make a difference.
