Day 4 recap finally is here! It pairs up equally with my excitement about telling you about meeting with Jonathan yesterday! 🙂
I’m totally obsessed with cute little puffins with their orange beaks and orange feet! So cute! I’ve never seen one out in the wild so my excitement for this was crazy huge!
One thing we knew right when we arrived was that I was under-dressed and my boyfriend was even worse!
We reached Bar Harbor relatively early so we sat down to snack a little before heading down to the windy harbor!
Eventually we did head off to the harbor and the view was SO AWESOME!
The only issue was that along the whole way was fog. Our tour lady explained to us that its Maine, there’s always fog coming in and out and the best time to not have fog was in January. So we had to deal with it and soldier on! This is what it looked like around us when the boat left the harbor…
The first part of the trip was listening to our tour lady talk about Maine and Bar Harbor and lobster fishing, etc. while the biggest attraction were these little colorful markers every so often…
Eventually we did start seeing seabirds here and there. I really don’t remember the names much so excuse me for my bad memory! Plus I was trying my best to keep warm and take those 400 pictures. Thank goodness the boat had blankets, although the humidity on the water was off the charts so the blankets were all damp by the end of the trip…but we’re not at that point yet..lets continue!
We did this tour with Acadian Boat Tours on the Islander which is a relatively smaller boat than the nature cruise! Most of the people on there were birdwatchers, which I obviously am not because I can’t even remember the names of the birds! It was a great boat tour though! There were 3 lighthouses. The second lighthouse had most of the puffins and assorted seabirds. We stopped there for a good amount of time. The last one I think was called the Egg Rock Lighthouse (someone from Maine please correct me). It had seabirds, bald eagles, seals. So awesome!
Just remember if you read the temperature to be 28 Celsius, expect 8 Celsius, k? Bundle up and bring those windbreakers and scarves if you have to. Bring mitts or gloves if you want to take pictures. I didn’t bring all that and I was so cold! Thank goodness I had a zip up cardigan and layers. I still needed that blanket to keep me warm! Just in case, you think about doing this! Its worth every penny though!
The recap of the last day of my Maine Trip should be on Monday but since this post was slightly long, I have a part 2 for Day 4 for tomorrow instead! Remember to check back (especially you foodies)! 🙂
