The Rocky Coast of Maine, Day 3 ...

There are dozens of small harbors in and around Acadia National Park area. Most are oblivious to the tourists except to fight for parking places and space on the roads.  Out in the harbor, life goes on, tourists or no.


 Small buoys (usually white) mark  lobster pots.  These bouys are everywhere!
 



 When the tide is out, tidal flats appear and an opportunity to dig clams.

Digging clams is back breaking, hot work.
 

Retreating and incoming tides can cause little rapids.

Seawall Harbor.  Rocks piled up by storms have created a natural sea wall.
 


A tidal estuary can drain fresh water to the sea after a shower or flow backwards twice a day.
