Picnic in Bar Harbor

We packed a picnic lunch and headed to Bar Harbor to celebrate the first day of Spring. For lunch we had a grilled shrimp salad, fruit, Ritz crackers, Cabot pepper jack cheese, and for dessert, we had brownies with walnuts.

We found a spot at the town pier and to our surprise we were not the only
ones with the same idea,

Well, this little fellow already had his spot.

And all the others were lined up too. Who would have thought
this would be such a popular place to park and eat on March 20?

After we ate, we took a walk along the 100 year old Shore Path.

Coming back through town we stopped at the park overlooking the harbor, before we headed back to the truck.

And of course we saved a few Ritz and cheese for our friend.

It was good to beat the crowds of summer. They don't know what they're missing.
