Just got back from Maine [View all]

Another great trip to MDI and Acadia. I'm glad I have a friend who moved up there . Spent a lot of time happily picking blueberries, letting dogs swim at Little Long Pond. BEST Dog Park EVER. My 10 mos old lab mix pup is still a little too playful (even for my friend's 2 labs) but a lovely Labradoodle named Pearl put her in her place (nicely) and she was a changed dog the rest of the day.

Favorite restaurants:

1. Common Good (for popovers, oatmeal, & coffee); a soup-kitchen that makes breakfast Fri-Sun and uses proceeds to fund their efforts. You make a donation as payment. Had live music (a couple with acoustic guitars--very nice).

2. Eat A Pita. Good pasta dishes and--my favorite--blueberry bread pudding.

3. Archie's Lobster (in Tremont on the island). Killer views of Bass Harbor, cornhole games set up, plenty of space, BYO, awesome food (and homemade blueberry pie).

4. 2 Cats (in Bar Harbor). Great breakfasts, great biscuits.

5. Blaze (in Bar Harbor). Wood fired pizza. mmmmmm.

The trip from Delaware took a little over 11 hours---including about 3 gas/rest breaks. I made it to Boston before needing gas, then made it the rest of the way. Went up the Mario Cuomo Bridge way, went near Hartford, then back east the rest of the way. On the way home ended up on the Merritt Parkway due to an accident on the other route and it was nice, too. Some traffic getting off the MC Bridge around 4:30 (I had noticed traffic that way also in the morning on the way up). All and all---not too bad.

Little Long Pond:
