I just bought the MapAdventures map of Acadia. It's gorgeous, very detailed, will help orient us before we get there.

My husband and I are arriving in Bar Harbor on May 26. Is anyone else coming in early? From the Bangor Airport? Dinner on Sunday or lunch/dinner on Monday?

After this ends, going to Camden, Maine for June 2-8 sail on Angelic. Anyone else out there planning this also?

Am thinking about staying over 2-3 days, renting a car and driving to St. Johns to catch the ferry over to Nova Scotia for 2 nights, then hurry back to catch a plane. Would anyone else care to share the ride and expenses?

Would love to, but our passports expire Nov 6.

After looking around, it seems that we can go to Nova Scotia with our passports. We will already have a rental car. I'll check out the trip.
