I'll say it now... neither Paul not I really likes lobster, so we had none on this vacation. Don't be shocked. Just don't love it so much as a lot of people. If I did, I'd go broke. Lobster rolls ranged from $11.99 to $20 depending on where we went! I had THE. BEST. crab cakes here at Red's. O. M. G. The first of many seafood meals this week. Fish and chips, shrimp, clam chowder.... oof.
I think I told you last year about the many businesses that had "Maine-ly" in their name. This year, I wrote them all down:
Maine-ly Antiques (but some new stuff?)
Maine-ly Used Cards (but some new cars?)
Maine-ly Sewing (but some shuffleboarding?)
Maine-ly Pottery (ok, you get the idea...)
Maine-ly Meat BBQ
This year, we stayed right in Bar Harbor and we were able to walk to almost everything we wanted to do. We spent a lot of time on the town green, looking at the harbor and people-watching. One day, this showed up:
It is a 142 foot yacht owned by the owner of the New Orleans Saints football team. A crew of 7 were constantly cleaning and shining up the boat.
We also did the greatest thing ever.... went to "Reel Pizza", a movie house where you can eat dinner while you watch the movie! Here is a picture of the seats with counters in front of them to put your food...
These pictures aren't great since I forgot the camera and had to take them with my cell phone. And if you look closely, up front there are couches and recliners with TV tables! ( we chose the regular seats).
Once you order your food, you go sit down and wait for your random number to show up on the BINGO board:
So great, we went twice! The first time we saw Super 8 (fun and a little scary). The second time we saw Bridesmaids (very funny). Don't you think there should be one of these around here???? I would go every week. (Tickets were only $6!)
We also walked across the harbor at low tide to hike up a little mountain on Bar Island to see this:
Apparently I'm on a mint green streak.
