What a great day we had. We visited a couple of state parks, did a scenic drive, had some nice ocean views, saw a bunch of elk and a few seals, and got a great look at one of our favorite birds - the American Dipper, a little gray songbird that is as comfortable in the water as out.
It was a rainy day at Acadia, so I picked out a two-hour "Nature Cruise" from Bass Harbor on the quieter side of Mt. Desert Island. Seals and information about Maine lobstering were the highlights of this enjoyable little tour.
