What a great time we had walking across the ocean bottom—that exposed bar of sand, filled with all manner of interesting creatures!
While walking across the bar, we found the largest starfish I have ever seen.
|As indicated by the photos below, this warning went unheeded by many.|

|This bar is just amazingly expansive. It's amazing that the whole thing is underwater most of every day.|
|Andrew and William skip stones from the bar, out into the harbor. It was in this area where we found the giant starfish.|
|We're pretty far across the bar here. This is looking back toward Mt. Desert Island and Bar Harbor where we started.|
|While hiking on Bar Island, you pack in and pack out, as there are no facilities of any kind. This is how Joe "packs out" dirty diapers.|

The bar sprinkled everywhere with cairns, as can be seen behind Andrew's head.
