From Midcoast to MDI

August 25 – 29, 2020

We left New Harbor and Pemaquid for the trip north and east around Muscongus Bay, Penobscot Bay and Frenchman Bay to Mount Desert Island. Our first stop was the fishing town of Round Pond.

We headed north through Waldoboro and Union to Appleton, to visit our friend Caitlin on her farm and purchase delicious goat cheese and other treats.

We proceeded on to Northeast Harbor at Mount Desert Island. Our friends Anne and Robert hosted us graciously in their beautiful home. Anne is one of the most loyal followers of our blog and is also a wonderful cook. Her pandemic special is Pad Thai – delicious!

We hiked the Beech Cliff Loop and Trail and the Valley Trail, both in the western portion of Acadia National Park. Below are views from Beech Mountain.

After our hike we had a nice outdoor lunch at a Bass Harbor restaurant.

    1. Hi, we aren’t sure. We were going to leave in mid-November to go south and west, but the pandemic surge has us questioning that. It’s pretty comfortable to sit here and weave for me. When the golf course shuts down, I will need to find lots of chores for him!!!
