After leaving Mammoth Cave National Park, we drove for several days to reach our
We took two boat tours. My favorite was the Baker Island cruise with a park ranger. It’s uninhabited. It has a lighthouse and several other buildings, an old one room school, a small cemetery, and flat rocks where teenagers used to have dances. They would sail over and have parties at night. We took another ranger led tour, the Islesford Historical cruise. It goes to Little Cranberry Island then it goes up the fjord of Somes Sound for some wildlife and bird watching. We saw more lighthouses and seals.
Jordan Pond House is a restaurant and tea house. I was able to celebrate Bettysday on the 15th here! We had tea on the lawn, which is a big tradition here. There are small tables and bench-style seats on the lawn facing the pond. They serve tea and warm popovers with strawberry jam and butter. I drank the pot dry. The walk around the pond is really pretty too.
More to come…
