Maine Day 7, Great Head and Sand Beach

On our 7th, and last (*sniff*), day in Maine, I took the kids and some of the Travaglinos and McCloskeys to hike Great Head Trail and Sand Beach.  Allen took this day off to work catch up recover.  I should never listen to his trail descriptions, because he thinks moderate means easy, difficult means moderate, etc.  Yeah, the trails are marked correctly!  So our "easy" hike was pretty moderate with some climbing, and the poor Travaglinos were troopers in their crocks and flip flops.  (They were without their rig as it was in the shop and Maine was a last minute trip!) But we had a great time and enjoyed yet another beautiful perspective of Mt. Desert Island.

Another one of the beautiful sights just driving down the road.

And as always, a beautiful sunset back at camp.
