Goodbye Mira Monte Inn in Bar Harbor, a lovely place to stay. The Innkeeper is a fount of knowledge about the area and gives great suggestions about what to see and do. Even though the weather has not been the best, we took off to see the other half of Mount Desert Island. Lighthouses always seem to be on the agenda so we stopped at the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. As you can see by the flags it was blowing a gale.
We then tried to find the Children's Chapel. We had an address and the trusty iPad took us to the address but we couldn't see anything. After Jan. ringing and speaking to a lady she directed us up a dirt wonder we couldn't find it! It had a lovely view of what we could see and we tried to imagine what it would be like on a nice sunny day! The chapel was very rustic and of course I found a lovely tulip (I many photos of flowers can you have? Never enough in my mind!)
We found a cute place for our cuppa, called Three Dogs. They were just redoing the gardens and were putting in some ponds. The owner must love dogs as there were dog pictures everywhere and in the ladies room, the mirror had three dimensional dogs around the bottom of it! However the pastries were mouthwatering!
Our lodgings at Wiscasset were two bedrooms above a carriage house at the back of an antique shop that was extremely expensive (run by the owner),
Le Garage was the restaurant on the water for dinner...again an excellent meal! Jan had Salmon topped with a rhubarb sauce that was very different but delicious!
