Had a wonderful time with Mom, Uncle Billy, Aunt Heidi and Cousin Hannah in Bar Harbor for a few days…. I really enjoyed showing off my second home, and spending time with family!

When Billy and Co. arrived in Ellsworth, Mom had them set up at the new Hampton Inn.  We picked up Billy and went for an adult beverage at Finn’s Irish Pub, in Ellsworth, https://www.facebook.com/FinnsIrishPub.

I hooked the extended family up with tickets to the Bar Harbor Whale Watch, the trip was cancelled because of weather, but we moved on, and went for lunch on board the Holland America Maasdam.  The tickets were rebooked for the next morning, and they enjoyed 3 hours of whale watching on Saturday morning.  After work, we headed up to CherryStones for an after-work drink.

On Saturday, Mom and I met up with the Voltz’s for a fun filled afternoon.  We collected them in town, and hit up the 38th Annual Fair on the Green…. a fabulous arts and crafts festival on the Village Green, with some really unique items, Mom, Heidi and I bought bracelets made from spoons!  I also found a piggy bank, the front of it is an old post office box, that was actually from White River Junction (where we went hot air ballooning) in Vermont.

We headed up around the Park Loop Road, and had lunch at Jordan Pond House.  The popovers were awesome, as expected.  We headed up to the top of Cadillac Mountain, it was a beautiful day and we got some great pictures, and finished up the island tour with Bass Harbor Light.  Dinner was at Pat’s Pizza in Ellsworth, and the family all headed out on Sunday.
