    This town was my favorite. Good to see you got there. It was a hangout of the sailors after WWII, and my father took a boat from across the harbor to get to Bar Harbour. We lived in Winter Harbor.
    The lobster here is terrific! Nice pages.

    Aren't whales amazing? We got a good look at them in both Alaska and Antarctica. Bar Harbor is a very interesting place, and there are so many good places to get fine local seafood.
