Family Vacation 2010: Sorrento, Maine

We're just getting back from a family vacation this weekend.  We spent a week at 'The cottage at Oak Bluff' on Doanes Point in Sorrento, Maine."  It's across the bay from the famous Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.  Here are some brief highlights:

The Cottage


 It was beautiful as you can see.  It sits only a few yards from the water.  We enjoyed many hours of reading on the deck. . .


 . . . enjoying the view of the bay. . .



. . . cooking lobsters. . .



. . . warming by the fire . . .



. . . eating ice cream. . .


. . . and hunting for creepy crawlies under the rocks and seaweed.  We found crabs, snails, eels, clams and a sea urchin.  Oh, yeah.  There were mussels by the billion. 



We took a short hike into the woods to swim at Little Tunk Pond.  


We also watched a few bald eagles, an adult and two juvenile eagles, fishing and eating their lunch!


All in all, a great week.  Now back to real life!
