A foggy sunrise yesterday morning!



Thursday, August 11, 2016

We have had a remarkable streak of warm, sunny weather since mid-July, but the ground is extremely dry. So yesterday's afternoon shower was most welcome, and a few more are in the forecast for the next several days.
The gardens will love it!

Scenes from Tuesday's Parade of Sail up Somes Sound in celebration of Acadia National Park's Centennial.
It was a unique and spectacular event on a beautiful August afternoon!
Thank you to all who planned and all who participated!
Special thanks to the Mount Desert Police and Acadia Park Rangers for great crowd control work!

Winter Harbor Light yesterday afternoon.

Guess what? The summer is flying by, as usual, and we are now into August already! There might be a few clouds and showers around today and tomorrow, but almost all of the recent Mid-Atlantic rain has stayed to out south! So get out and enjoy the rest of summer before it's too late!

One way to do that is to take in the "Parade of Sail" scheduled tomorrow afternoon in Somes Sound from 2 to 4 p.m. Several large schooners from Camden along with yachts from the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass. and many yachts from the Mount Desert Island area will sail up the Sound in full dress to celebrate the Acadia Centennial! It should be quite a show - so don't miss it. Plan ahead to get good viewing spots!

Sunset over Bartlett's Narrows yesterday evening.

The traditional Polynesian sailing canoe "Hokulea" arrived on MDI Saturday and tied up at Williams Boatyard on Somes Sound. Her visit, part of a world voyage, honors the centennial of the National Park Service and of Acadia National Park, and celebrates the heritage of Native American tribes in Maine. "Hokulea" sails without the use of any modern tools of navigation. Her crew relies solely on ancient Polynesian knowledge of the stars, wind, ocean currents and waves!

Petit Manan, located just off Schoodic Peninsula, is home to a number of sea birds including a significant colony of Atlantic Puffins. Schoodic includes a beautiful section of Acadia National Park and the Schoodic Research Institute.

Five A.M.

A wild turkey spotted in Pretty Marsh on Friday afternoon.
Wild turkeys have made a remarkable comeback on the island in recent years
to the point that they are becoming rather common - both as individuals and in large flocks!

Sunrise at Long Pond on Tuesday morning.

Bar Harbor's only 4-masted schooner, "Margaret Todd", returns from a sunset cruise on Sunday.

Waterlilies are now in bloom on Duck Pond. (Betcha don't know where that is!)

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
Please drive safely - especially in or around Bar Harbor today.
Be patient and allow plenty of extra time to get where you are going.
The 4th of July is arguably our busiest day of the entire year!

This little female hummingbird was enjoying the warmth of the early morning sun on Wednesday.

Welcome to July! As usual, the summer days are flying by - so get out and enjoy the many things we have available to us at this time of year! Fall will be here before you know it, and you'll be wondering where the summer went!

Have a happy and safe Independence Day weekend! Bar Harbor will be wall-to-wall non-stop action!
