We will be driving to the summit of Mt. Cadillac in Acadia National Park today. This is the highest point on the North Atlantic coast at 1530 feet above sea level. The drive thru Acadia National Park is nice with all the trees that have not started to change colors yet. The locals say it has been too warm for the leaves to change. You see the view we had as we drove up the mountain and then the summit overlooking Frenchman Bay. It is pretty but the wind was blowing and it was cold. Did not know it but cruise ships stop in Bar Harbor for day visits. Today there were 3 cruise ships in so the small little town was jammed with people. Bar Harbor is not that large of a town and walking down the sidewalks was impossible with all the people there. We drove around but that was it.

While we were on the Mt. Cadillac summit there was a tour bus as you see but the picture. Rotel Tours put 20 people in the bus and away they go. The back of the bus is small sleeping bunks 6 ft. long and 3 feet high. Everyone sleeps on the bus but they only have one toilet and no shower facilities. They stop at campground so people can shower. The bus also has a side that opens out for cooking. Not my type of travel.

Candy wanted to have a whole lobster, so we found a place by the campground that had great reviews. Not much to look at but everyone liked the food. It was called C-Rays Lobster, it was behind a house in a little building like a shed, they cooked the lobster outside under a lean-to and you ate outside on picnic tables. Candy really enjoyed it but it sure was not my bag of tea. The guy showed her how to open it up plus they give you an instruction sheet. Too much work to eat for me. As you see by the pictures she enjoyed it.
