The views along the coast are the most popular, especially along the Otter Point trail that goes along the east side of the island. There were so many people lollygagging along that trail that it was actually irritating to walk it, because they got in the way of real hikers (i.e. us). But the views were spectacular.
And part of the beauty is spotting sailboats out catching the wind. Despite the overcast skies, the weather was warm enough to be just right for hiking.
Along the southern coast, the fog made it look cold, the way I experience beaches in Oregon and Washington. But it wasn't. You wouldn't want a jacket of any kind on a hike through this fog. Very interesting.
I was particularly amused by people who brought out their camp chairs, some of them with a little built-on shade, set them up on the rocks so they could read a book out by the sea. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! I wished for our own camp chairs, but they were safely back in our garage at home.
One of the trails I enjoyed the most was the time we took a carriage path around Eagle Lake. These paths were built by Roosevelt when he was annoyed with cars clogging up the roads in Acadia National Park, and making the air stinky. He had the sandy carriage roads built to accommodate horses and buggies; they still do that, but they also accommodate walkers and bicyclists.
