Sand Beach, Great Head and surroundings

After my earlier mountain hike today, I decided to take it a bit more easy for the remainder of the day. I headed out to one of the few sandy beaches in the National Park, very aptly named "Sand beach".
Sand Beach is a broad sandy beach surrounded by the mighty Maine rocks coast scenery. In order to get to the beach one has to descent about 8 meters. There is water at both sides of the beach, at one side, of course the Atlantic Ocean, and just behind the beach is a little lake that flows into the sea via a stream on the beach.
At the other landside it is bordered by a little peninsula "Great Head" which immediately rises up to about 45 meters (150 ft) above sea level, so far, for a take it easy hike, but still nice. There used to be a tower with an observatory, salon, and tea room at this site, owned by Louisa Saterlee, the daughter of the famous New York Banker, J.
After my visit here I stopped at some other parts along the park loop and finally called it a day, for a well deserved and delicious meal at Geddy's in Bar Harbor, one of the few restaurants that were open.
