When we were a bit further away from the shoreline, the sound of waves faded away, pine trees, colorful bushes entered into the view. They along with the blue sky, white clouds made the sea shore seem like an elegant, tranquil paradise!
In fact it is not all rocks along the shoreline. There is a short sand beach at a cove by the loop road, which attracts hundreds of people to brave the cool sea. There is a pebble beach at Schoodic point for young and young at heart to wander and play: to fish, to skip stones, to wade water. There are many birds along the shoreline. Aside from numerous sea gulls, we saw two bald eagles fishing near winter harbor at Schoodic point.
In the evening, the low tide reveals the sand bar at Acadia, which emerges from under the sea to connect Bar Harbor and Bar Island. It is a bit chilly to stroll on the sand bar even in a mid-summer evening. The sunset over the sand bar, however, is awesome.
