"the bubbles" ~ view from grassy hill

Jordan’s Pond is located inside Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine. There IS a pond, but to me the most important part of Jordan’s Pond is the restaraunt. It is crazy wonderful. I always choose to sit on the lawn, weather permitting. The restaraunt has indoor seating but on the grassy hills outside there are seats o’ plenty and the view is incredible. Sitting at a table on the lawn eating popovers, watching my son run crazy all over the hillside. What could be better?
As for the menu. I havent had anything that wasnt great, however, occasionally I will hear my husband whispering in his sleep about the lobster bisque. Okay, slight exaggeration, but let me tell you, get the lobster bisque. cup or bowl, just get it. (caution: could cause loud moaning, and flailing of arms….)
After you eat at least a dozen popovers, sit and enjoy the view of the “bubbles”, then mozy and I do mean mozy (after a full meal anything else would be suicide) down the path just past the grassy hill. It leads to a secret bridge over a pond. Stunning….
Jeeze, now I’m all riled up wanting a popover.
