Acadia was one of the absolute highlights on the journey - unfortunately the days were in the shadow of September, 11th. We were on a walk around a beautiful lake (images 6 to 9), when we heard of an accident at the World trade center for the first time.
Acadia is a good example for the fact that (apart from the Niagara falls) the east doesn't show you its secrets easily. You have to take your time to look around. And then is still basicly the feelings you have, and not just the results of your camera work.
In addition to that tourism around Acadia is operated very carefully. The small city of Bar Harbor is a good example of how you can can do tourism as well as keeping a relaxed atmosphere. And for me Bar Harbor will not only remain in memory as the place I way on September 11th, but also as the city in which I ate Lobster for the first (and probably only) time.

The two cranes landed together on the rocks, whispered for a few seconds and then one of them was gone again
