Portsmouth, NH, was our first stop of the morning where we went to Prescott Park and walked along the pier and the gardens. Afterward we walked along the town and had a delicious breakfast at a small local cafe called Colby's -- my tofu scramble was delicious!

From Portsmouth, we headed up the coast to Acadia but along the way we saw some stunning views near Portland and Benton (I know, right!! How cool.). The fall color has really popped out here in Maine and the drive in was just gorgeous.

We spent most of the day in Acadia National Park on Mt Desert Island. We did the 27 mile loop and took some excursions on some of the better sights. We stopped like every 5 minutes for 10 minutes of picture-taking. This is a beautiful park where the ocean meets the mountains. It's like nothing I've ever seen before. The beautiful cliffs overlooking the crystal clear waters.

After Acadia, we headed into Bar Harbor. We walked around enjoying the atmosphere, did some shopping and ate a great (but steep) dinner at Testa's. M finally had her lobster. I had a difficult time watching her eat it, but she seemed to enjoy it. We both topped off the evening with homemade blueberry pie with Maine blueberries.

We're finally back in the hotel and ready for an early start tomorrow.
