Sunday September 21st ~ Maine
Day 2 of Acadia National Park, plus our drive to Augusta. In case you missed the 1st half of the park, you can click here to see that post.
The weather God’s were shining on us and after a brief rainstorm, the sun came out and it warmed up to around 72 degrees F. Oh how I have been missing the sunshine!
After completing our tour of the park, it was time to find some lunch. I had several people tell me that I had to try a lobster roll. So… (I loved it!)
It was time for us to finally turn the car toward the West. I’m including another map section to give you an idea of the route we have taken over the past three days.
The blue line started in Boston and we overnighted in Bangor. Yellow took us to Green Lake and first 1/2 of Acadia NP. Pink line was today to complete Acadia and then headed west with our overnight in Augusta.
Here are a couple more things we checked out today:
Fort Knox and Penobscot Bridge Observatory (Prospect Maine)
We take our time as we travel by car. Stopping when something catches our eye, or we get hungry or tired. The next few days we will be on the hunt for fall foliage. The trees are starting to turn and we are encouraged that we may see some good color.
Gratitude Moment: Today I am grateful for good maps, computers and GPS that allow us to pick a direction and go. Finding our way along the back roads of America where we can pull over easily to take a picture as well as see so much more of the authentic area is our preference. We much prefer that over taking freeways.
