acadia day 1

Seawall, Acadia National Park
We decided an "easy" day was in order, due to the tiring day we all had yesterday. You would think that sitting in a car all day wouldn't be so exhausting, but it is.

Andrea, Carly, and I went to a grocery store to stock up on some essentials. On the way, we stopped at Little Notch Bakery to get some pastries. We knew it was a splurge, but had no idea how much until our selections were rung up. Word of warning, when the little signs identifying the various pastries lack prices, ask before you make your choices.

For our main outing for the day, we drove the short distance from our rental to Seawall, an area where large rocks along the shore are exposed in low tide, which it was at the time. The little girls delighted in climbing on the rocks and looking in the tide pools to see snails, snails, and more snails.

For dinner, we went to Thurston's Lobster Pound. When we got there, we discovered that their credit card processing wasn't working and they could only accept cash. We stayed, after determining that we had enough on us to pay the bill, as long as we scaled back our menu choices to things like lobster rolls, instead of a full lobster dinner. We'll be coming back another night, as long as they get their credit card situation worked out. The lobster rolls were delicious, by the way.

We finished our day with ice cream at Quietside Ice Cream Shop. I can recommend the Maine blueberry ice cream.
