BAR HARBOR, Maine — It's been years since The CAT Ferry has made stops in Bar Harbor, but by mid-summer the Maine/Nova Scotia route will be back.

Whenever it comes to town, people are looking forward to it.

Lourraine Bozard and James Cartmell are from Virginia and visiting family in Maine for the week.

They say they'd love to be able to use the CAT.

"It's a good way to see the harbor and go to Halifax, too," Bozard added.
