Acadia Ocean Drive in March 2018
when we visited in Winter during a storm.


The problem is the SNOW. They have kept the roads open BUT are not plowing.

I heard, this morning, that Ocean Drive is basically closed due to snow.

Not sure you are planning on visiting right now but I wanted to give you a heads up.

We went in early March 2018. I had fun. I walked the entire Ocean Drive twice — once in a gail.

Hopefully the SHUTDOWN will be over by March 2019!

Friday, November 23, 2018, Is ‘Acadian Day’ In Louisiana — Commemorating The Arrival Of The ‘Acadians’.

The original Acadia in 1754. Click to ENLARGE. From Wikipedia.


Yes, my beloved ‘Acadia National Park‘ is related to the Acadians but semi-indirectly. The actual ‘Acadia‘, as can be seen from the above map, was further north, in Canada. But, the notion of calling that whole NE area ‘Acadia’ persisted.

Canada has a ‘National Acadian Day’. The Day After Thanksgiving holiday is restricted to Louisiana.

SOME Of David Rockefeller’s Acadia, Maine, Estate Items To Be Auctioned, August 17, 20018.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access article from “Mount Desert Islander”.


Click for last year’s post on THE house for sale.


This from what I gather is basically ‘odds and ends‘ of no ‘great’ value — though all of those terms are relative when you are dealing with the likes of the Rockefellers.

As the above ‘MDI’ article points out in the 4th paragraph 1,500 items were already auctioned off at Christie’s in New York for a staggering $833 Million. Yes, you read that right; $833 Million. Close to a Billion.

I doubt that there will be any bargains at the August 17th auction in Northeast Harbor. The whole Acadia area, Northeast Harbor in particular, has an abundance of money, much of it, like the Rockefeller’s, old money. So, cash and cheques will be flying. Plus there will be sentimentality and those hoping that they might be able to make a profit reselling. So, I don’t plan to be there. Long drive.

But, I wanted to make sure that YOU knew about it. Happy bidding.
