There are South Bubble and North Bubble trails. We decided to go on the South one after a bit of research suggests better view on that one.
This hike is rated intermediate and it was definitely harder than the easy-level trails. The path is less defined and the climb is steeper. The Bubble Rock Overlook is scary looking as the big bubble rock seems just hanging on the edge of the cliff.
Follow the trail past the Bubble Rock Overlook, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the Jordan Pond. The photos don’t even do its justice.
The hike from here down to Jordan Pond is a bit more advanced than intermediate. It was a very steep drop with narrow path. We had to do quite some rock scrambling which was not easy.
A seaside seafood restaurant not far from us. We decided to grab a takeout. The food was quite good but not cheap. I chatted with the restaurant owner while waiting for my order - he said his volume was down 80% yoy (including takeouts) due to coronavirus.
An easy level trail for the whole family to enjoy so we took our little one on this hike.
The iconicn Bass Harbor Lighthouse. Take the path right next to the public bathroom, and then take the wooden stairs down, you will reach a dead end of the trail. To get the classic Instagram shot of the lighthouse standing on top of the cliffs, you need to climb out on the rocks from the dead end.
The Bar Harbor supermarket had a big sale for live lobsters - Usually $10/lb and it’s only $6/lb this week. The supermarket can also cook it for you. We asked them to half cook ours by steaming for 10 minutes so we can throw them on the grill for another 5 minutes at home. We got 8 lobsters for $56 - quite a steal!
The grilled live lobsters are delicious, especially the heads (lots of roe inside)!
It’s a overcast day. We decided to take it easy - drove around the main Park Loop Road and stopped at various viewpoints.
As its name suggests, Sand Beach is very sandy which rare in Maine.
Life is a good with a glass of wine 🍷 and a sunset like this 😊
