The Whale's Tale Gift Shop Great Cranberry Island Anura Guruge






DIRECTIONS

Pretty trivial to find once you get to Great Cranberry and you really must IF you have the time. It will enhance your trip to Acadia.

You can get to the Island by ferry both Northeast & Southwest Harbors, by private boat and if you are a better swimmer than I (and 99% folks are) by swimming across.

“The Whale Tale” is NO LONGER by the Town Docks. It has relocated further inland — but no far, not far at all, at all.

Take the main (only) drag out of the Town Docks … towards the famed Library.

Probably 1/4 miles up.

Right next to famed landmark … ‘Cranberry House‘ with “Hitty’s Cafe” & Museum.

It is right there. Right by the Museum.

So, you can’t miss it.


Delightful gift store. Some amazingly clever and cute stuff. Attractively priced. Great displays. I was v. impressed (and that takes some doing).

Nice, restored building. Full of light and airy. Very welcoming. Yes, we bought some stuff. Couldn’t resist.

Highly recommended. You have to check this place out. You will THANK me for this recommendation. SMILE.

Probably 1/4 miles up.

Right before you get to the other famed landmark … ‘Cranberry House‘ with “Hitty’s Cafe” & Museum.

You will see the signs to ‘Preble Cove Trail‘ on your right.

You can also find a cut-over to the Trail from outside the Museum. Not hard to find.

You will NOT see the ‘Topless Sign’ until you are about 100-yards from the beach.

Easy trail. Walk in the park.


OK, when we visited, last Friday, June 28, 2019, it was empty despite being the most beautiful day of that week — sunny and warm.

But, this was BEFORE July 4th and I have been told that the Islands don’t start to rock till after that.

Yes, as this blog testifies (and you really should do a search on ‘topless‘) I, given that I grew up in Europe, have no aversion to toplessness — male or female. No, I don’t need to see female breasts. SMILE. As I have said, more than once, “after you seen your first 10,000 they all look the same“. SMILE. Yes, I have been to HUGE topless beaches in Europe.

Funny thing this … my posts on nude/topless beaches in New Hampshire and Maine are year round favorites — on a daily basis. Always puzzles me when I see 30 hits for ‘Nude New Hampshire Beaches’ in mid-February when the temperature is below 0F and there is a foot of snow.

There is a ‘bed & breakfast’ in Acadia that SELLS (for a $1) my Acadia Nude Beach map (yes, the one above). I hear that it is quite a hit.

Well, I just wanted to share.

Talking of topless — I have been topless in my 1+ hour hikes the last few days. Feels so good.
