This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending my 4th of July in Acadia, Maine. I had never been, but a group of friends and I decided to Air bnb it — and I’m so glad we did! We stayed in the most darling little farm house in Sedgwick, about an hour south from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The home owners were so warm and generous, offering fresh produce and eggs from the farm during our stay. Ripe strawberries, blueberries, chives, chard— the works.
Friday night and Saturday day were pretty rainy, so we went antiquing in Ellsworth. Eventually the clouds parted to the most breathtakingly orange sunset below. On Sunday the weather couldn’t have been more ideal, so we headed out to the National Park. If you guys ever have the chance to go, you need to do the Beehive Summit hike. It’s a little nerve wrecking as you scale along the edge of massive cliffs, gripping onto iron bars planted into the rocks, but it was so worth it. The views are unreal and you feel on top of the world in every way possible. There’s also an awesome looking beach in the park that we really wish we had our suits for!
… and we obviously ate lots o’ lobster.
