Legacy Cruise: Day 4, Bar Harbor, Maine

Day 4 was further up the Maine coast, in Bar Harbor.  I was here on vacation about 10 years ago, so it was nice to go back.  Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great, so we didn't get to see much of Acadia Park, but it was still a fun day:-)

Our ship was too large to dock at shore, so we had to board whale watching boats and take that into port.  I was nervous when I first heard this, as when I went to visit Helgoland in Germany we had the same thing.  There, they literally threw you from the big boat to a small metal speedboat.  It was much easier this time around:-)

We took a trolley tour around town, which included a stop at Jordan Pond.  Next time we go, we want to stop here for lunch.

After the trolley tour, we wandered through the stores near the dock and then had fresh seafood for lunch.  Then it was back to the ship to sail up to Canada.
