Bar Harbor, Maine

One of our most anticipated summer pleasures is our holiday along the coast of Maine. Bar Harbor is a charming seaside town chock full of nautical history, delightful shops and an array of restaurants offering everything from the expected seafood to an authentic Cuban menu (delicious, by the way!). Our favorite hotel, The Bar Harbor Inn, is situated on Frenchman's Bay and offers amazing panoramic sunset and seaviews. There is a ton of activity in the harbor itself~ lobster boats, whale watching tours, sunset sails...we love to wander and enjoy the sights and sounds of this busy little town!
One of my favorite shops, window panes offers a selection of unique items for your home and garden and some beautiful fine crafts! There is a vintage inspired antique white wicker loveseat, chair and tables on their second floor that I've been drooling over for two years...it may be required for our new cottage!

This charming antique shop is one of my 'must visits' ! The porch is a cacophony of color, dishes and garden 'junk' that just make my little heart go pitter-pat! I always find some little treasure to add to my collection :)

Colorful yellow and green cups and saucers reminded me of my vintage seller friends on Esty ~ so adorable! (the friends too!)

I took several shots of this pretty blue bench tucked among the flower pots and boxes ~ it's such a cheery blue!
The weather was a bit gray and wet but we had a lovely time! Til next summer!
