On Sunday, the Rotterdam docked at Bar Harbor, Maine - this was a tender stop.
We had an early breakfast on the Lido deck and then took Holland America’s shore excursion to the Acadia National Park ($49.95) for 2 ½ hours, leaving at 8 a.m.
The Park was interesting due to the fall colours, but I was disappointed with the picture taking – I do not like to take pictures through a bus window because of the glare. The Tour Guide would point out interesting spots, but the bus did not stop, and you would only see them coming and going.
We did have a 20 minute stop at a Gift Store, and I was able to get some nice pictures there.
Then back at Bar Harbor, we went to The Independent Coffee Shop – quite busy - to use the wi-fi and have lunch - I had sausage, egg and cheese on a bagel and coffee - very good ($8). Then a walk around Bar Harbor looking at the stores and tourist attractions, and took the tender back.
