It is not unusual, but interesting nonetheless, to see large sail and power boats visiting Bar Harbor at this time of year.
A few days ago this huge ketch was spotted at anchor well outside Bar Harbor very near one of the large cruise ship anchorages. It was way out there undoubtedly because it's length and draft were too great to safely come in closer to the town pier!

There are still plenty of visitors here as we approach the last half of August, but this week may be the last hurrah for families with children, because many schools will start around the country over the next two weeks!
Don't look now, but fall is just around the corner!

Interesting cloud formations yesterday afternoon as the weather slowly but surely begins to change.

Main Street in Bar Harbor last night.

It's the last day of July - WOW! There are lots of people on the island right now, and the weather has been near perfect for a vacation along the beautiful Maine Coast! This is the time of year when it is fun to stroll the streets of Bar Harbor on a warm evening just after sunset to "people watch", get some ice cream, and sit in the park! Don't be tempted to stay home after dinner - you can do that all winter - just say "NO" to the "tube" or to Netflix and get outside!
You'll be glad you did!

Sunrise this morning over a foggy Long Pond.

We are now in the middle of summer and the weather looks like it will be great over the next few days - so, as we have said many times before - get out and enjoy this wonderful time of the year, because it will be over before we know it!

The moon was beautiful last evening just after sunset - it was a new "fingernail" moon!

Yet another beautiful July sunrise this morning shortly after 5 a.m.

The air was cool - a bit below normal - causing "sea smoke" on the water and in the sky!

Pretty Marsh Inner Harbor this week.
It's summertime, and the livin' is easy!

Wild water lilies are in bloom. Look in just about any shallow pond.
If you listen while you look, you also may be serenaded by a frog chorus!

A beautiful July sunrise this morning just before 5:00 a.m.

The fourth of July is upon us, and as we have said so often over the years - Labor Day will be here much sooner than you think! Summer is beautiful, but fleeting, here along the Maine coast - so make a point to enjoy each and every day!

Tomorrow will be Bar Harbor's busiest day of the entire year. The crowds will be huge and something will be happening literally all day from 6 a.m. through midnight! Traffic patterns will change for the day, and the Island Explorer changes its route to help reduce congestion. You can get the information you need here on this website - (Happenings and Island Explorer pages) - but the most important thing is to be patient and expect the unexpected! Drive slow, be safe, and enjoy this special day! And while you are at it, think long and hard about what REALLY needs to be done if we hope to preserve and revive our beautiful country! We are in big trouble and we are the only ones who can fix it!
