Mount Desert Island is part of the Arcadia National Park and a very popular tourist destination. It is the home of Cadillac Mountain , the highest peak on the East Coast, north of Brazil (its still only 15000ft!)
We pick up a mooring buoy and go in search of an internet connection, laundry, propane and Supermarket , zero out of four.
But it is the annual Flamingo Festival weekend, so we can buy a plastic flamingo and a cup of lemonade before climbing aboard the free island hopper bus. This bus doesn't hop islands, but does give you an in depth tour of the local campsites enroute to Bar Harbour , the main tourist destination.
