Bar Harbor, Maine May 2007

My nephew Sam was graduating from Bates College in Maine, so I went up a few days early to do some sightseeing around the coastal region of the state. I took a scenic drive up the coast highway to Bar Harbor, where I stayed for a few days checking out the town and some of the other surrounding sights. This included Acadia National Park, which is a beautiful place you could spend weeks exploring. I also have the good fortune of having a close friend, Steph, who lives in the area. She and her daughters, Geralyn and Chesley, came down to hang out with me for a couple of days to show me around and take me to some sights I may not have known about. They were great tour guides and made the trip a lot of fun. The pictures span the five days I spent in in and around Maine before Sam's graduation ceremony at Bates.
