Mount Dessert Island, Maine


In July we explored the rocky coast of Maine in and around Acadia National Park.  I joined MDI Community Sailing and explored southwest habor.  We visited Little Cranberry Island and learned about the lobstering community at the Isleford Historical Museum.  We braved the frigid waters of Sand Beach and summited  Cadillac Mountain and still had time for ice cream in Bar Habor.

It was a beautiful spring weekend at Cape Cod National Seashore.  There were numerous humpback and fin whales just off Race Point beach.

Can you guess what marine arthropod made these tracks near the Great Island Tavern Site?
