Our Trip to Maine
The Lacko Family Goes East!
This was near the end of the “shore
path” in Bar Harbor, a mile-long
stretch along the coast, running
from the harbor, past our beautiful
hotel (The Bar Harbor Inn) and in
front of some gorgeous oceanfront
Throughout our trip, we traveled
through Portland, The Kennebunks,
Kittery, Portsmouth NH, Camden,
Boothbay, Belfast and Brunswick.
The natural bridge in Bar
Harbor. Twice a day, the water
recedes more than 6 feet to
allow a large walking path to
the nearest island.
One of Joseph’s many masterpiece photographs!
This is the view from our hotel room in Bar Harbor. He shot this standing on our little veranda.
A few days after we arrived, we happened to pass a yard sale in Kennebunkport. A young family had just
grown out of this little “command center”, so we picked it up for 3 bucks! It was absolutely a gem to
have on our trip. On the last day, we donated it to the Goodwill, about an hour north of Portland.
This is the harbor, just across from the truly amazing and
wonderful Camden library. We stayed at the Captain Swift
B&B, and all immediately fell in love with the area. (Go, Zoot!)
The only drawback? Route 1 goes directly through it, and the
noise from the 18-wheelers break up what is otherwise the
most peaceful and quaint little town you’d ever want to visit.
The outdoor amphitheatre at the Camden Library. Joseph made a new little friend, Sophia,
Daddy gets a hug from his boys at a lobster joint down on the Camden harbor docks.
Little Joseph picked “flowers” (er, dandelions) to give to Mommy and Daddy.
We stopped at a little farmer’s market in Brunswick to sample the local produce.
Joseph was more interested in throwing sticks and the nearby sheep.
Being on holiday wasn’t going to stop Noah from working on his crawl.
We did a lot of walking… little Joseph stopped at plenty of benches
asking us to “sit, sit!”
Checking the view off Kittery Point at Fort McClary.
The bunker at Fort McClary. Little J was SO there.
The last night, we atayed in Boothbay Harbor. The next morning, we headed back to Portland
where the kids spent the morning at the Children’s Museum.
