Where Great Aunt Doll Hops a Tour Bus
Our last day in Maine was a *free* day. With the Hittys otherwise occupied, Great Aunt Doll took advantage of a tour bus trip headed to Bar Harbor. It was a beautiful day! After a dozy sort of ride, Aunt Doll woke to the bus pulling into the center of town – time to explore!
A short walk down the hill brought Aunt Doll to a fountain where there was a better view of the harbor:
After a delicious lunch (clam chowder!) the bus left for Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. The views on the way up were spectacular on this picture-perfect day. The bus kept stopping, so Aunt Doll was able to have her photo taken:
At last, at the top of Cadillac Mountain, the BEST PART! Great Aunt Doll was able to lay her eyes on Great Cranberry Island! While the island conjures up many happy memories for the Hittys and their Caretakers, Great Aunt Doll had not seen, nor been to Great Cranberry. She was thrilled to be able to see “The Pool” and some specks that were houses (possibly Preble House?!) Hooray!
Can you see it? It is the top island in the middle of the photo. As always, you can click on the photos for a larger view:
‘Til Next Time…
