Something New

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherRegardless of where you decide to sleep, whether it be a bed and breakfast, a hotel, a small or large cottage, a log cabin, or even in a tent at a campground, the one thing that ties it all together is the awesome natural display called Acadia National Park. Those three words, do not begin to describe the diversity of what there is here. Point yourself in almost any direction and you can easily spend a day and a half discovering something new and something memorable. Stay at one place, or mix it up a bit. Why not? This is your vacation and your time. Have you ever thought of doing or trying something but backed off, only to wish that you had given it a try later on? New experiences are new memories, new knowledge, and sometimes, new friends.
