Camden, Maine and a Return Trip to Acadia National Park

After visiting Maine-ly Maine we headed off to another favorite place in Maine, the town of Camden and Mount Battie State Park. 

We first wandered through town and then had lunch at Cappy's Chowder House.  I had an unusual sandwich - a Haddock Rueben sandwich.  It was different but not something I'd want on a continual basis!

Then we stopped into a few stores along the main street.  The fist one we walked into was an Art Gallery called the Duck Trap Trading Company.

This life-sized bald eagle carved from a single piece of Tupelo by Stefane Bougie well for $85,000 in the store and $100,000 online!

Sandpipers are $1200

African Lion carved by Earl Martz that sells for $5600. 
We decided they wouldn't look right with our decor!

After visiting downtown Camden, we headed for Mount Batie State Park.  We love the view of Camden Harbor from the top of the Mount Batie.

The last time we sat on these rocks we were watching the fog roll in over Camden Harbor.  It was mesmerizing.  This time there was no fog and we could see for miles.  Today was the most clear we've ever seen it up here.  It is like a totally different world down there!

We left Mount Batie and headed again to Acadia National Park hoping that there would be a lot less traffic.  Our goal today is to get another look at the walk that we love along Otter Point.

 We passed by this Beaver home as we drove the road to the park.

 Loved the red in this tree.

We left Otter Point as the sun was setting and headed over to Jordon Pond House.  We will be in time for dinner tonight and we couldn't wait.  They serve the best food!

Of  course, we also had popovers to go with the meal!

It was a wonderful way to end the day!
