We are walking down by the shoreline of Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park in Maine. There are beautiful views everywhere here.  Another dead tree has fallen near the edge of the water among some grass reeds reflecting in a nice way.

I skipped lunch and the world famous pot pies at the Jordan Pond restaurant in Acadia National Park in Maine. I wanted to spend my time down along the shoreline and take in more views of the pond and mountains.  Here a dead tree bad fallen into the water and sort of pointed at the great scenery.

At Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park in Maine there is a very nice restaurant where you can eat outside under umbrellas with a great view of the pond or inside the building. I liked the rounded twin mountain’s in the distance and the very large lake (pond).

Here we are at Acadia National Park at the famous Jordan Pond area in scenic Maine. We have driven part of the road circuit around Acadia National Park until we came upon this great place. This is eleven photographs stitched together into one panoramic view. View large if you can.

After walking down the coastline of Maine in Acadia National Park some more, we have come across people sitting out on the huge granite rock cliffs.  One gentleman was doing handstands near the cliff edge and this person chose to sit and contemplate the beautiful scenery and view. I can just imagine this cliff during a huge storm in Maine with the waves coming in.

We are visiting the beautiful Acadia National Park in Maine near Bar Harbor.  After viewing the Thunder Bay and Thunder Hole area you can walk along the shoreline and rocks and observe the rugged granite rocks of the coastline here. The rocks are very pink and red with green lichen and blends well with the forest and saltwater of the bay.

The first stop in Acadia National Park in Maine was “Thunder Bay” with its “Thunder Hole“.  These were huge granite cliffs and rocks along the shoreline and there were stairs going down the side to the “hole” in the rocks below. Here the saltwater waves would come in and get caught in the crevice and blow upwards making a thunder sound.  It was too calm out on this day to cause this sound.

Below, I made a Poster of this shot as I saw similar ones in the Gift shops in the park. This was a vectorized image with text placed on it in CorelDraw

We finally got to go out on a tour bus seeing many of the sights of Acadia National Park in Maine. It was fantastic and we will go back with a car to explore other areas or perhaps camp there and do some of the challenging and beautiful hiking trails. This spot was called “Thunder Bay” which had a “Thunder Hole” where the salt water surf came in on the rugged granite coastline and had formed a slot that shot the surf up and made a thundering sound.  There were steps that took you way down to the bottom safely.

We were walking down the street in Bar Harbor, Maine waiting for the bus to take us to Acadia National Park. We looked among some of the store windows and here was a Jewelry store with a nice display. I took a few photographs through the glass which reduced the clarity.  No, we didn’t buy anything there.

We were downtown in Bar Harbor, Maine waiting for the bus to Acadia National Park so we walked around.  This street had lots of shops and brightly painted stores. We did not do any shopping, but we did walk around looking in the windows and seeing all the people visiting on a beautiful day in Maine.
