From Bangor to Acadia, we took state route 3.
We had passed by many lobster joints on this route on the previous day, so our mission the next morning was to hit up one spot that was intriguing: Lobster Pound & Real Pit BBQ. Lobster and BBQ? I’m game.
Of course I had to get a blueberry soda! It’s what Bar Harbor is famous for. Blueberry everything.
This was probably our 5th lobster roll on the trip. Not bad.
The brisket was kind of dry.
Yes, a real pit.
After our “breakfast/brunch”, we had to fight through food coma and take advantage of daylight for our hike.
Hello again, Acadia.
Bubble pond. I wondered why they named this bubble pond, and then I saw:
At the highest peak of every mountain, there’s a sign that tells you you’re at the summit. So if you have to wonder if you’re “there yet”, you’re most likely not.
Relaxing on top of the Pemetic Mountain.
I loved this view. So peaceful. There weren’t many people crowding around during any of our hikes, so we got to take pictures without much interference.
After a day of hiking, we drove to Bar Harbor to wait for my friends. We had some time to kill, so we got some ice cream…
There are several locations of Mount Desert Ice Cream in Maine.
Really digging the unique flavors they offer.
I believe I got cucumber lime, buttermint, blueberry sour cream crumble, and butterbeer.
Bar Harbor was peaceful and quiet. We strolled by many restaurants and a park where we sat down to eat a lobster roll from Downeast Deli.
Sadly, it was the most disappointing lobster roll of this trip. Bread was weak, meat was weird in texture, but I guess now we have a reference point for comparison.
We took a stroll.
Then we met our friends at Stewman’s Lobster Pound for dinner.
Blueberry ale. Tasted like regular beer with some blueberries on top.
I liked the outdoor seating at first, but then as it got dark it also got chilly and the lighting was so bad we almost couldn’t see what we were eating…
Next post: final day of hiking at Acadia. And more eating.
