Mount Desert Island

It's been awhile since we lived anywhere near an ocean so we're not accustomed to the morning fog. Waiting for it to burn off, we enjoyed a lazy breakfast at home before taking off to explore our new area.

In some cases, the fog can enhance a photo, like it does this dreamy harbor scene.

We drove around part of the island and through the town of Bar Harbor before driving up to Cadillac Mountain. At a mere (for us Westerners!) 1,500 feet, it is purportedly the highest point in the northeast. We're not sure how they make that claim, but it's not for us to dispute. And the views are breathtaking!

The ship in the center of this photo is the Margaret Todd, a 4-Masted Schooner sailing from Bar Harbor.

The village of Bar Harbor below; the long island to the left is Bar Island; and the other four are the Porcupine Islands. The two center Porcupine Islands are shrouded in clouds.

This is the top of Cadillac Mountain. The smooth, large, flat rocks are covered with moss, lichens, grasses and shrubs.

This, of course, was my favorite view on Cadillac Mountain!

Driving back down from the top, I captured this...perfectly posed.
