I like this magnet. I have two of them bought on two different trips — one on our last trip, the 8th, in June 2017. I buy them at the ‘Hulls Cove Visitor Center‘. I can never leave that place without getting something. I justify it by thinking I am helping the Park Service. {SMILE}

Nothing profound and nothing you can’t find anywhere else — but I wanted to capture it (for my sake if nothing else. {smile}). After I scanned these I mounted this magnet on my bathroom door, with velcro, at eye level. Now I can look at it while I brush my teeth.

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
