Picture your first day on your Bailey Island vacation.......
Sleep in and rise to the sound of sea gulls catching their breakfast as lobster boats head out of Mackerel Cove.
Take your coffee and newspaper out to your adirondack chair perched above your own pebble or sand beach 20 steps below. Thinking about your day, you walk down the rocks to the beach below. After skimming a few rocks, looking for sea glass and wading in the tidal pools, you decide on the perfect balance for the rest of the day.
Maybe you will fish or swim from the dock or rent a kayak to explore the island. Perhaps you will relax and bring your new summer read and picnic lunch down to the beach at noon. In the afternoon you will take a walk over to the east side cliffs and the 'Giant Stairs' formation and watch the crashing surf. After that you may bike to Orrs Island to look at gardens and get an ice cream.
In the evening you will watch the spectacular sunset over Mt. Washington--75 miles to the west while sipping a favorite cocktail and taking pictures. Later you'll enjoy a candlelit dinner in your nautically decorated 'Martha Stewart' style cottage or head to one of the four local island restaurants. As you lay your head down on your pillow your first night of vacation to the sounds and smells of the nearby ocean, you begin to dream about the rest of your week in this little spot of heaven. You ask yourself, 'will I take a boat cruise with Casco Bay Lines from Cook's Lobster House or walk down to Land's End Gift Shop 1/3 of a mile away?? Shall I head to Brunswick to a fine restaurant and take in a musical at the Maine State Music Theater? Shall I shop at L.L.Bean and the outlets in Freeport if it rains? Shall we invite friends when we cook our complimentary lobsters or savor them all ourselves? As active or as quiet and relaxing as you want to be, you know your vacation on the coast of Maine will be special and memorable for years to come.
