Friday was probaly our favorite day yet. Since we were spending another night here we didn't have to pack anything, just grab some coffee and go ride. Our plan was to spend the day exploring as much of the island as we could in a day.
Top of the list was to check out Bar Harbor before the masses woke up and filled the streets. Low tide was around 7:30 that morning so we wanted to see the sand bar to Bar Island. We get there and I ride out far enough to get a picture of the bike on the sand bar and it feel pretty solid. Nobody's watching and I don't see any signs forbidding vehicle access so I tell Rhonda let's ride across it.
About half way out it gets a little rocky so she gets off the bike and takes a few shots.
We came back later in the day and it looked like this.
Since we didn't have to walk all the way across the sand bar and back it was still early and the little town of Bar Harbor was still mostly asleep. We rode around town a bit and then went to the This Way Cafe for breakfast. Met the owner of this nice 2012 Grey DR650 there.
From there we headed to the Acadia Park loop road.
Aren't beavers amazing.
Riding along enjoyng the scenery I had to come to an abrubt stop and get a pic of the unrecognizable creature. It wasn't until a few minutes later I realized it was a dog, what kind of dog I have no idea.

There's the sand bar we rode across earlier and the town of Bar Harbor.
A couple shots of Northeast Harbor.
After seeing about all we could in Southeast Harbor we rode over to Southwest Harbor. The first stop was Bass Harbor lighthouse.
It was starting to get late so we headed to Beal's Lobster Pier.
Campcook with no lobster.

With full stomachs we had back to camp. Sitting by the fire Campcook breaks out a surprise she had packed. Good stuff.
Tomorrow we say goodby to the coast of Maine and start making our way back home. We haven't even left yet and we're already talking about when we come back next year. Our total lobster count over the last 2 1/2 days, six lobsters and four lobster rolls. Mission accomplished.
