     Description 


The Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park in the small
fishing village of Winter Harbor has one of the most beautiful rocky
stretches of coastline in the whole state or for that matter the
country. The waves breaking against the rocks can be truly
spectacular especially if there has been a storm at sea. The park
has a picnic area overlooking the whole bay with a long warf from
which people fish for mackeral, stripers and bluefish when they run.
There are plenty of things to see and do. Oh yeh, I almost forgot to
mention you can buy lobstahs real cheap and I mean dirt cheap at the
local fishermans co-op.

     Attractions 


Explore and enjoy Schoodic Peninsula with its many beauties and
relaxed pace. Walk to everything, there are 4 restaurants, an old
fashioned 5&10, grocery store, craft, art & antique shops and and
allot more. There's also a nine hole golf course on Grindstone neck
that overlooks our harbor on one side and Frenchmans bay on the
other.

If you enjoy the ocean take a sailboat cruise, lobster boat trip,
kayak the bay and meander through the coves with thier overlooking
cliffs,. Ride out and see the seals basking on the rocks on the
other side of Turtle Island or the osprey nesting near the Halibut
Hole. Picnic on the rocks out at Grindstone.

About a mile away is the entrance to the Schoodic Point section of
Acadia National Park. Bike the park or hike its trails. The first
thing you will come to after you enter the park is Fraziers Point
public picnic area overlooking the entire harbor and the town. There
is a pier with a float attached that many fish from. From here
you'll get a spectacular views of the mountains, Mark Island
Lighthouse and you can watch the harbor porpoises, gulls, osprey,
terns and of course the lobstermen pulling in the days catch. If
you are lucky you might see a whale. The vistas are nothing less
than magnificent and many have spent the entire vacations right
there. The gray and pink granite coastline is a sight you won't soon
forget. Next, hike or drive to the top of Schoodic Mountain to see
some breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. When you get out to the
point relax or picnic and gaze straight out into the Atlantic Ocean.
It can be really spectacular if there has been a storm at sea.
People will come from all around to watch the waves break over the
rocks. Caution though, the sea can be rough enough to throw boulders
that weigh several tons right up into the road! So you certainly
wouldn't want to get to close the edge on days like those.

Freshwater swimming and canoeing at Jones Pond (5 miles away). Or
enjoy fishing for landlocked salmon, brook trout, lake trout and
bass.

If you are a leaf peeper and plan on visiting to view New Englands
fall foliage in all it's colors. The leaves generally reach their
peak in October and can be quite spectacular.

If you just can't get relaxed and need a little more excitement you
can always take the ferry to Bar Harbor. Along the way you will see
seals, porpoises, ospreys and round many small islands. If you go
early in the morning you might see deer coming out to the rocks to
lick the salt. You might also see a deer or moose swimming between
land and the islands. Moose regularly swim clear across the bay.
There are also bald eagles, sea turtles, whales and one of the most
unusual looking fish you have probably ever seen, a sunfish. They
seem to average around 400-600 pounds Downeast but can get as large
as 3000 pounds. They are round in shape and have a fin that gives
the first impression of a shark in the water. You can get right up
and pet them if you like. Most people think they are dead or sick
when first seen and when I first glimpsed one I thought it was the
front half of a great white shark. My second thought was, what could
eat that and I think I want to go home now! Seriously though they
are very friendly, curious and primarily eat jellyfish. And
finally let's not forget, some of the cottages, cabins and camps out
there on the islands can really take you back to a different era.
It's a really beautiful trip and the views from the ocean give you
an entirely different perspective.
