As I discussed in Monday’s post, I’ve been a bit MIA from the blogging game lately, and I apologize! After my last day of work two weeks ago, I headed up to Bar Harbor, Maine to spend a couple days of much needed R&R with the family! It was my first time in the area and my oh my was it stunning! If you haven’t gotten a chance to head up there, I highly suggest it! We stayed at a B&B, which was a first for me and even though I wasn’t a huge fan, I do have to admit it was very quiet and relaxing.
On our way up we made a stop at the Freeport Outlets, which were fabulous and I made sure to make some back-to-school purchases! Once we got to Bar Harbor, we checked into our B&B, got our things situated and headed down to the harbor for a little adventuring, appetizers and much needed drinks. We ended the night with some chocolate bars and a heated game of Scrabble, which my mother won by a landslide.
Day two was spent bike riding and taking in the amazing views of Acadia National Park. I was very excited to be getting my very own bike before we headed to Maine but after our 3.5 hour bike ride, I was so beyond done. I’m glad I got to do it and spend time with my family, but mom and I weren’t too thrilled during the actual bike ride (think padded shorts that felt like a diaper and swearing like truckers) – can you blame us though? Dad said it was going it was the easiest trails in the park but I beg to differ. This is me throwing in my biking shorts for a long while.
Have you ever been to Bar Harbor?!
