Easter weekend 2015

The bay was at the end of our street DeGregoire PK. The water was so clear and blue on a sunny day. Many birds were floating as well.

We took several boat rides out on the bay and it was great. On evening we did a sunset cruise and the colors were spectacular! Definitely get out on the water if you vacation here.

I thought this was the most beautiful place ever! I was here over Labor Day weekend, and it was an absolute treasure. So beautiful.

Frenchman Bay is a beautiful place to see the ships comes in. My husband and I also took a kayaking tour which took us near the bay and eventually to some open ocean waves. Frenchman Bay is one of those key places to see in Bar Harbor, just because it's such a central part of the area.

I was fortunate enough to visit during the fall season when all the leaves were turning magnificent colors. Great area for relaxing and watching the boats come in. In addition, a fabulous are to collect sea glass when the tide is out.

This is a pretty site at sunset. I like that there are so many ships and this is in middle of the city.

Our first glimpse of Frenchman's Bay was from our hotel room at the Atlantic Eyrie Lodge. Later we viewed it from Cadillac mountain and finally as we walked the ocean trail. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing to view it.

Found a couple of patio bars, relaxed and had a drink and appetizers and watched the activity at Frenchman's Bay. Beautiful boats in and out of the bay.

We had a view of this bay from our hotel and it was breathtaking. It's lovely to walk across the causeway at low tide.
