As I update this, I can't believe it has been going on 7 years since we took this trip to Maine. We have been on another one or two since then as this is one of our favorite places to visit.
We had a wonderful time on this trip, and came home to cooler temperatures after a very hot summer that year.
Pictured below are a couple of gardens on the property of a large Inn in Bar Harbor, overlooking the water. I think it may be Bar Harbor Inn. We love to walk their path along the shore, and watch the sailboats, yachts and cruise ships come and go.
I would love to be able to stay at this place sometime, but think it may be a bit out of our price range. Still, it costs nothing to enjoy the outside views and look at their gardens.
