Maine Adventures

We ended school vacation week with a trip to Acadia National State Park. A place I have wanted to visit for quite some time. Most certainly a place we will continue to explore in years to come for SURE!
Maine Man looks small in comparison to that rock!
The natural beauty is just unbelievable! Before we headed out we read about the history of this park in a lovely book I got from the community treasure chest . Using that book we were also able to pick out a hiking destination. We choose the Gorham Mountain/Beach Trail. It was a 3.5 miles hike….perfect for a family!

We stopped at “Thunder Hole”. A narrow area surrounded by rock that waves crash into making a tremendous sound.

I worried that Flower Girl would not be able to keep up the pace….that was unnecessary because she was the leader of the pack throughout much of the hike.

The forecast called for rain but we had sun, sun, sun. It was a beautiful day!

Always fun to make it to the top!

Then we made our way down and walked along the beach trail.

We still had a ways to go but the water was just too tempting!

Take note her pants are NO longer rolled up

Imagine that?They were soaked to their belly buttons, then covered in sand.
To be a kid again!
We hope to return again this summer with the Fresh Air Child we are taking in for a week in July. We plan to go on several hiking trips a year from here on out so I will share them here. I am adding a side link(label) of “Our Maine Adventures” as a way of sharing great places to go with fellow Mainers & visitors and as a memory for my children.
