Bar Harbor - a beautiful location spoiled by tourist traps


We fully anticipated enjoying the beauty of this wonderful place on the planet and were not disappointed. The coastline, islands, mountains and the sea are simply spectacular. Unfortunately, attractive locations also draw a plethora of tourists just like us. Tourism is what drives the local economy from mid-May through October. It literally shuts down other times.

We will stay one more day then start our trek south arriving back in Leesburg late September/early October. Our trip north next year will certainly include Noca Scotia. Just wasn't in the cards this time for a variety of reasons not the least of which is Bill.
