This was true serendipity.

It was New Year’s 2018 & our 15th anniversary. We had gone to Portsmouth, NH, to eat somewhere ‘nice’ overlooking the water. Some of the restaurants in ‘Tugboat Alley’ were closed — no doubt because they must have been open late for ‘First Night’. Then I had the idea of going across the river to Kittery, Maine to see what they had next to the water. That is how we discovered “Warren’s Lobster House”. We have driven by it a few times and I have walked by it a few times too. But, we had never gone in.

We did ‘today’ — Monday, January 1, 2018.

Glad we did. GREAT EXPERIENCE. Our kind of place.

All the lunch/dinner meals come with soup and a salad bar — and the salad bar is GOOD. One of the best around here. Makes Ruby Tuesday’s look anemic.

Great service. Wine by the carafe.

We had the Lobster Rangoon special. That was not bad at all.

Teischan and I had salmon; hers plain mine with an amazing Maine blueberry glaze. Deanna had lobster stuffed haddock.

Food was good and there was enough. Great ambience, and even better views across the water.

Teischan had a fancy Sundae — which got rave reviews from her, and she knows her ice cream.

The attached ‘Gift Shop’ is cute and fun, and the ‘keys’ they give you to try and open the treasure chest entices you to visit. We bought some stuff.

Overall a warm, satisfying experience.

Will definitely recommend it to others.

I am already planning to go back! It was that good.

Made my day.

It was definitely very low-key, unstated and there were no fireworks of any sort. The Visitor Centers had some small stickers and tattoos with the Centennial logo lying inconspicuously on the counter while the main center, at Hulls Cove, and the gift shop at “Jordan’s Pond” had some Centennial merchandise. I, as is my wont, spoke to a few people and they had no idea that they were visiting the Park on an auspicious day. Once I told them they were, as was to be expected, tickled. The locals knew but were not making a big deal about it. One motel in Bar Harbor updated their roadside notice board to wish the Park a happy 100th birthday. That was about it. It wasn’t a great day weatherwise. Though there wasn’t much rain it was overcast, gray and gloomy all day. But we still had a good day — since it is neigh impossible not to enjoy yourself while in Acadia.

So that was Friday, July 8, 2016 on “Mount Desert Island” — Acadia National Park
