Phase Two of the Trip

After we left the camp we headed over to Acadia National Park. The park is on Mount Desert Island in Maine. We would loved to have had a week there!  It is so beautiful and there is so much to see and do.  We spent a couple of nights there.

This is Thunder Hole.  The water has worn a channel into the rocks and when it hits with force at the back of this sometimes air gets caught and makes a loud sound like thunder.  I think we all could have watched this all day!

This is along the drive around the park.  It is so beautiful as there are mountains, islands and ocean

This is Sand Beach.  We took a hike that went out from the beach and then we played here all afternoon the one full day we were at the park.  This picture was from up on the trail we were on above the beach

Here we are on the hike.  I decided to try wearing a pack so we could go but was unsure if my back was ready for it.  I felt great the whole time!  I can't tell you how grateful I was and how much I thanked God for that healing on the hike.  It was such a thrill to be in God's beautiful creation and doing something I love to do!

Todd and some of the kids out on the point where we climbed around in the middle of our hike.

The girls playing at Sand Beach.  One loved the water (which was 55 degrees) and one hated it

The Big Man lived in the big waves!


The view from on top of Cadillac Mountain.  The islands are called Porcupine Islands

A view of the town of Bar Harbor

And this was just cute of the little man with a great find!

Stay tuned for more to come...
