As a save-everything-I’ve-ever-written-writer I put together a short story for you. During a brief three year jaunt along my journey as a writer (1995-1997), I kept a special journal to document what we still refer to as our California Vacation. I’m taking a small section from my journal to rewrite for this post. Our 2014 winter in Central Maine has been brutal. We still have over a foot of frozen snow in the back field. It’s been a long and bitter New England winter. A trip back in time to bask in the California sun sounds pretty soothing to this Mainer right now. So here we go.

Spending a holiday in the state of Maine is on the bucket list of many people. Ask the place they most want to visit and the answer probably will be Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
What is the draw that has so many of us wanting to spend time in one of Maine’s top destinations? In the 1800’s, American’s wealthiest families spent time in this beautiful spot…the Astors, Carnegies, Fords, Morgans, Rockefellers and Vanderbilts. Why did they all pick this particular spot?
