We spent a week in Maine exploring Acadia, hiking, tide pooling, and eating our way through Bar Harbor.   We had always wanted wanted hike Acadia, and now that the girls are getting old enough to enjoy long and strenuous hikes we thought it was time.  All they talked about was tidepools.  They couldn't wait to find sea creatures.  I have to admit that both my husband and I were totally excited about that too.  The first thing we did when we arrived in Bar Harbor, after ditching our luggage and food, was to take the long winding drive up to the top of Cadillac Mountain to get a view of Bar Harbor, the ocean, and the mountains.  The next day we made our way down to Seawall and Wonderland to do some tidepooling.
