Trip to Maine

The first weekend in September Stefan and I took a trip up to Acadia National Park in Maine.  It’s about 5 hours away so it was a great distance for a weekend get-away.

We drove out Friday night, Hiked “The Bee Hive” on Saturday, and biked around Bar Harbor.  Sunday we biked the Park Loop Road on the Tandem!

Hiking on Saturday:


The Bee Hive was such a cool hike!

We also stopped by The Jordan Pond House for popovers. The Jordan Pond House has been serving Tea and Popovers to “rusticators” at Acadia for more than 100 years. It was pricey and mediocre but it’s a thing to do.

You can see the Pond behind us here

Bar Harbor was a cute little down. We biked around, Walked around the harbor, and saw the sites including this awesome clock:

We also had dairy-free icecream! Yay icecream!

Sunday was Biking Day

We got the bike out of the back of the Ranger.

It was a stunningly beautiful day


It is surprisingly hard to get a picture with the Tandem

We stopped for lunch and a scamper on the rocks

And we did the whole 19.5 miles in 2 ish hours

After a tiring bike ride, we drove up to the top of Cadillac Mountain. It was crowded because you could drive but there were also tons of older and disabled people who were able to see their first mountaintop. The accessibility, though a bit annoying for us, is so nice for those who need it.


After a tiring but super fun weekend, we drove home to our awaiting kitty cat.

It was the perfect weekend. School had just started and there was a threat of rain Saturday which kept people away.
