More of Maine Coastline

Before heading out of Acadia, we visited cousin Mike at his home in Sullivan. He has a large home on an even larger sandy beach. He tapped many maple trees and made maple syrup last year and gave us a jar - can't wait to try it - yummy!

We decided to drive through Castine and see the sights; then on to Camden for the afternoon and overnight. First we stopped at Bagaduce for lunch and watched kayaks and families actually in the river - whitewater! I had the fried haddock basket which was delicious and good value, huge piece of fish.
Walking at Castine waterfront. The MMA boat was not at the dock.
At the Dice Head Light house (in private ownership), walking in the backyard path, then down some steep stairs to the rocky shore. It was fun to walk (must have walking shoes/sturdy) and you can spend time on the rocks, nice views.
Drove to Camden and checked into our hotel. Was surprised to see this waterfall right in downtown, at the waterfront.
Camden waterfront.
We enjoyed a drink at the Sea Dog Brewery, they have multi-level decks over looking the water frontage.
The motel has gardens planted in every square inch of dirt around the property. Amazing, plentiful gardens. We went to Camden State Park ($9 non-residents) in the morning/Thursday and explored the top of Mount Battie (plus picked a cup of wild blueberries).
We drove south to see Wiscassett, ate lunch at the Sea Basket (won't go there again) and then home!
