Vic and I are just wrapping up our very early in the season visit to Maine. WE defiantly beat the crowds. About half of the shops were still closed in Bar Harbor and those that were open were happy to see us.
Weather corporated nicely, daytime highs in the low to mid 60's and nighttime lows around 40-45.
It seemed wherever we went we were either just ahead or just behind the Today Show crew. Since they did most of what we did (except the biking and kayaking) I will post the link here:

We even had the lobster at Behels! Every time we visit Acaida we stop there! It's about the best deal on lobster we can find and tasty too.
The second half of or trip we went a bit further north to Cobscook Bay State park. Of the 125 sites we are the only ones here! The rangers have been really accommodating and the view are fantastic! Or site is right on the bay. It reminds us of the Boundry Waters National Park in Minnesota except here your site is directly on the water. Temps here today hit 72 and while the black flies are present they are only an annoyance for about an hour or two. That's why we brought the Clam shelter!
While quite rural their is plenty to do and see in the area. We visited Roosevelt Campobello International Park, Reversing Falls, The town of Lubec, hiked 6 miles of Quoddy Head State Park (lighthouse, shoreline, and bog walk are not to be missed).
A big THANK YOU to all from this site that gave us a heads up on sites we would have otherwise missed. It has been a great trip.
