Park Loop Road, Acadia National Park, Maine

Beautiful sunset at Acadia as I was leaving the park, the air smelled fresh of the woods, and balsam and of the sea.  Deer crossed right in front of my car twice.  A little cooler here than the rest of Maine and the evening breeze is refreshing.

Eastport, Maine

The perfect summer day in Maine and the perfect place to enjoy it, away form the crowds in beautiful Eastport!  Delicious wood fire cooked dinner at the Pickled Herring with live jazz and a waterfront almost full moon stroll.  If you're not Downeast, why not?
