Acadia Goodbye

Our week was short and we packed it on including walking 27 miles in 4 days. Each morning we walked the shore path in Bar Harbor starting at the Independent where I picked up a strong coffee. Fog covered the bay every day until it burned off around noon but the sight was breathtaking.  The […]
