The kids immediately went about finding their little critters. We have gotten into a habit of collecting some "sea lab" pets at each campsite and then dumping them (excuse me, I mean carefully putting them back where they belong) before we go. It is good science and also helping them not miss the kitties so much.
The town of Bar Harbor (aka "Bah Hahbah") is super cute, full of places to get fresh "lobstah", take a whale watch cruise, or hike out to one of the porcupine islands at low tide. This is looking out into "Frenchman's Bay".
We splurged and had lunch at "Geddy's" (below), which was decorated with license plates all over the walls as well as some interesting animal parts. The kids loved the license plates... closest plate to home was Oregon.
