Bar Harbor, Maine

Today started off with drizzle and clouds but turned into a beautiful sunny day by the time our excursions started. We had people on 2 different excursions at 1:30 so we met in the atrium on the ship at 11:00am and all took the tender off together. Everyone split up and went shopping and had lunch before going to the tour meeting places. There were 5 of us on the Best of Bar Harbor tour and 18 were on the Historic Lighthouse Cruise. Luckily I was not on the cruise because the that group had a very rough ride and several people got sick. I told them to take Dramamine! They had a good time even though the waters were not cooperating. My tour went to the Lobster Oceanarium, The Turrets castle which is now part of the College of the Atlantic. Then we went to Acadia National Park and made a stop at Thunder Hole. The way the rock formations are when the water rushes in the sound it makes sounds like thunder. Then we went to the top of Cadillac Mountain and enjoyed the lovely views. We did get to see some colors but hope to see lots more in Canada. Mom took some of the pictures on here and I taught her pretty well. She got some good shots even through I had to delete a few of the ceiling and the floor of the boat! She said those waves threw that boat around!
Tomorrow a big group is doing a 6 hour Beautiful Colors of Fall private excursion and I am going on a Photogrpahy Tour of the Bay of Funday. So should be lots of good pictures tomorrow!
