Thursday was a pretty uneventful day, as we basically waited until about noon to see if Keith and Susan were going to be continuing with us or renting a car. As soon as it was obvious that they were going to have to go find a rental, my brother, his wife and I headed on to Bangor, Maine.
The drive was very nice, although seeing these signs every few miles was a bit disconcerting.
We even got to Bangor in time to go catch the new Captain America movie before the rest of the crew arrived…half of them on four wheels.
On Friday, we headed to Bah Hahbah (that’s the local pronunciation, those who aren’t “r” challenged say it “Bar Harbor”) and took a boat tour of the area, some of the bays and the Cranberry and surrounding islands.
The most interesting thing about the houses…some would say mansions…that line the coast, is that most of them are empty except for a few months during the summer. Just little summer cottages on the coast of Maine.
After the boat tour and lunch, we headed to the Acadia National Park for a ride up Cadillac mountain and around Ring Road, but I think I’ll leave those pictures for the next post.
