Schoodic Peninsula - Acadia National Park

We drove further north to Mountainview Campground in Sullivan, Maine. It is on the Schoodic Peninsula scenic drive. the campground is on Flanders Bay and most of the sites have great waterviews and look towards Cadillac Mountain, which we will go to later in the week. As we are spending a week here, we decided to get the full hooks that are near the office and only have a small water view. We will be out exploring most of the week and so that is fine. Besides it is still pretty with all the greenery and flowers around us.

The first two full days will were there rained all day. Tuesday it was just a light rain and so we decided to drive to the Schoodic Peninsula Point. It is the only part of the Acadia National Park on the mainland and is not as busy as the larger, more popular section on Mt Desert Island. There is a six mile one way loop that wines through the spruce forest with great ocean views. It was actually very dramatic with the rain and cloud and fog coverage. Most of the pictures below taken from in the MH and so you will see some of the rain drops on the windshield.

There were wild flowers and other greenery lining the shores as the waves pounded against those granite rocky shores. What a beautiful place to spend a rainy day.

There are a number of Harbors in the area, including Winter Harbor and Birch Harbor as you leave the park loop but continue to drive around the Peninsula. What views the people who own the house below have.

The next day was very rainy off and on all day and we just took it easy in the motorhome. The rest of the week is suppose to be much better and we will drive over to the main part of Acadia and Bar Harbor.
