wild blueberries all around if you look


pear brandy run from a local


Sea Kayaking around Acadia for 4 hrs with a guide, $52/person, best deal around. the wildlife was great. harbor seals are bigger than I thought.




a good burger and fish sandwich from the Wrinkled Pickle. I would not normally mention a burger place.


good access to the beach from the Airbnb thru the woods. we did these several times. the ground felt like a soft sponge. pleasant to walk.


fog one morning so thick you cannot differentiate the water from the fog. lesson for me seeing this. do not scud run under the fog when over the Ocean. you will not survive.


Mussels to be had in QUANTITY if you desired.


On the way to Schoodick point

Default time to depart Burlington

Paint photo op.


the Thunderbirds were performing over the lake but they let me sneak out even thought the airport was under a TFR.
some support ops I suppose.




Nice smooth ride on the way home at 3000 ft for 600 miles but fighting some headwind. beautiful.
