Long rocky beaches

Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park

Time in New England took me away…. You might recall the song Weekend in New England written by Randy Edelman that could have easily been inspired by the magnificent views in Acadia National Park. We took this photo from a stop along the park loop road on the east side of the island near Thunder Hole. That’s a cave that emits a thunder-like sound when a wave hits it just right, drenching nearby tourists in the process. We stood well away from there.

There’s a 27-mile long road that takes you past all of the overlooks and other scenic sites including the second photo, this one from near Sandy Beach. At the entrance, as we had our 25 dollar fee in hand, the park ranger tactfully asked if anyone in our car happened to be age 62 or over. I qualified for the Senior Pass with the double bonus of costing only 10 dollars and being valid for life. When we return to the US for vacation we’ll just have to remember to bring the card with us.

By the way, national parks are free in France.
