Car Camping in Maine - Day #5

We hiked up Mt. Acadia today. It was a gorgeous day, and we had a beautiful view of Somes Sound.

We hiked down and found the junction of a freshwater brook with the ocean. It was a beautiful, secret feeling place with trees and a cool breeze. Our guidebook said that pirates used to sail into Somes Sound and use the brook as their freshwater source. It was the perfect place to have lunch - baguettes with pesto and tomatoes.

Here we barely made it in front of the camera before the timer went off. We ascended again up St. Sauveur mountain, pausing at some ledges that gave impressive views of the Sound again but from a different vantage point.

On the way home, we stopped by Thurston's for lobster roll snacks.

It was quesadilla night tonight. The skillet was good at making the tortilla crispy and melting the cheese but by the time I made the entire batch, the first couple had become a little gummy and not as crisp as before.

No matter - refried beans, sour cream, freshly made guacamole, and an ice cold beer (Thunderhole Ale!) made the meal delicious anyways.
