Acadia and Mount Desert Island, Part Two

Cara and I spent the last week of June at Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor, Maine. We stayed at Emory's Cottages on Sand Point of Frenchman's Bay. This view of low tide is from the shore of our cottage site. This second picture post covers Sand Point, our boat trips, and Indian Point nature preserve.
