Above: We walk Bar Harbor's Ocean Path, a waterfront two-mile long city sponsored trail before breakfast. Humongous cruise ships dwarf pleasure craft in the clear waters just three hundred yards in front of us. Hundreds of people tender in on smaller enclosed boats. Oversized seabirds soar overhead but rarely make a sound. Thousands of delicate aromatic rose hip style rose bushes line the path on one side and create a barrier between the wealthy landowners uphill and us. I don’t see any wildlife along the rocky shoreline.

Above: Fire in the sky sunset in Bar Harbor, Maine. Every evening the sunset was spectacular.
Above: The backside of Bar Harbor gives access to quiet beaches, fishing spots, and islands within swimming distance if you can take the cold water. I found this area 1,000 yards from the big downtown hotel perfect for a little writing...but then the Paparazzi showed up.
