September 25, 2010 – Scarborough to Bar Harbor

While overcast this morning, the still water and muted light provided some excellent photography.

During our drive from Scarborough to Bar Harbor, we began to see some truly spectacular fall foliage.

We arrived at our campground, just north of Bar Harbor and with a view of the ocean, in mid-afternoon.

Bar Harbor sits on the east coast of Mount Desert Island, just a few miles from Acadia National Park.  The town contains a beautiful harbor looking out on many islands

and yet has the look and feel on all too many tourist destinations with store after store peddling¬† tee-shirts, crafts, jewelry and artwork, not to mention dozens of restaurants and bars …

each hustling patrons for their “early bird” specials and “happy hours”.
