We spent a good bit of time on the water while we were staying in Bar Harbor.   We saw the puffins and seals and many whales.  We were also lucky enough to come across a Mola Mola and a Basking Shark.  We braved the crowds and took in a sunset from the top of Cadillac Mountain which was spectacular.  We had good intentions of getting there for a sunrise, but the we actually had a good bit of fog and cloud cover the week we were there so we decided bed at 4:30 am is just as nice.  My husband and I took a night hike down to Little Hunter's Beach which was amazing.  We had a good moon that night so we were able to do most of it with just the moonlight...me imagining all sorts of trolls and critters that live only in the pages of books.
