“Earrings found.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

While driving on the Heart of Acadia Loop, we stopped and I found some acorns. They were small, not like the elongated ones found in California. I have a pair of earrings made from CA acorns. I am anxious to find out how to make ME acorn earrings, I am reminded of my beautiful Maine Heart of Acadia Loop journey when I see the little acorns.

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We just visited Acadia Nat'l Park in early September with friends from Germany. It's a beautiful park. If you've gone that far drive the entire loop road. We walked along Sandy Beach and also enjoyed the views from Cadillac Mtn. Wish we stayed for the sunset. We stopped alongside the road and had a very enjoyable picnic next to a stream. And Bar Harbor is such a nice place to visit, as well. The shops are quaint, the lobster was delicious and the view is so pretty. Definitely want to go back.

This is a great way to see the park in a brief time....be sure to check out Sandy Beach, Ocean Path trail, Otters Cove, Cadillac Mtn views. You will want to spend more time on your next visit!
