I forgot to mention that we decided to stay outside of Camden in Rockland for the night. Our hotel room had an unbeatable view. I even woke up early so I could sit out on the balcony and take in the view in it's early morning glory.
We headed out early in the morning to catch a morning sail on the Schooner Olad. (pictured below)
For my 30th birthday we took a sunset sail around Newport and now I'm obsessed. This time around we picked the early morning sail in hopes of seeing more wildlife, especially Seals. We lucked out because the morning sail only had 5 passengers so it felt like we had a private sail.
We managed to see a porpoise and one seal.
After the morning sale we stopped for lunch at the Waterfront restaurant which was recommended by the Captain. I had a Salmon burger for the first time and loved it! Once again the water views didn't hurt anything!
After lunch we stopped at the Camden Cone for ice cream. I discovered this little gem my first time in Camden and I always make sure to hit them up anytime I visit now. You always need good ice cream.
After saying goodbye to Camden we went back down to Rockland to look for the Andre sculpture.
Did anyone else grow up watching the movie Andre? I loved that movie as a kid but I never paid attention to where the original family lived. Watching it again recently I realized that the family had lived in Rockport so I wanted to make sure to see the Rockland Harbor were Andre had lived.
Here he is looking out over his harbor.
The little statue seemed like a perfect tribute. The harbor was beautiful as well.
After visiting Andre we drove up to Bar Harbor. We took it pretty easy the rest of the day. We walked around downtown Bar Harbor, visited Atlantic Brewing Company and hit up The Thirsty Whale for a late dinner.
A Lobster Roll and a little Lobster Bisque seemed like a great way to end the day.
