If your are gonna head down for the aquarium opening, don’t forget to stop by the Dossin Great Lakes Museum and the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory.

Schooner Head, Acadia National Park, Maine

Spent some vacation time at one of my favorite non-Michigan locations, Mt. Deseret Island, Maine. Mt. Desert Island is about 45 minutes east of Bangor on the the Atlantic Coast. Mt Desert is the home of Acadia National Park (America’s first National Park east of the Mississippi) as well as the famous town of Bar Harbor.
The two panoramas were taken at Schooner Head in the Acadia National Park.
