So our first excursion with the “King of the Road” went pretty well. We had a great time in Maine, met some fantastic people, saw lots of cool things, ate great food and most importantly made it home in one piece! We broke up the long drive by heading down the coast of Maine yesterday, taking in a whale watch, then camping on the southern coast of Maine last night and driving home today. There are so many things I want to write about...but I'm really, really tired and the motor home looks like a frat house on Sunday morning. We were doing a pretty good job of keeping things neat and organized until we left Belfast, but with the sightseeing, the boys and the electrical problems (yep, not solved, had to charge the battery last night and no headlights...again) it's a wreck. Dirty dishes in the sink, a lobster claw in the cup-holder and somebody's shorts are hanging from the lamp. In other words, a good time was had by all!
Just a couple quick pictures and thanks! We stayed at The Moorings RV Park, a terrific campground where we met some wonderful people. The boys made a friend and had a fabulous time on the beach catching crabs and sea stars with him and his family. It was great to have a friend for the boys to play with! We were fortunate to be camping next to a very nice couple from New Hampshire and had a great time visiting and getting to know them. Finally, I can't tell you what a pleasant surprise it was to return from our whale watch in Boothbay and find this note on our windshield:
Another wonderful couple who raised and survived camping with 4 boys! An added bonus of camping, seeing cool things and meeting great people!
Finally, a picture of the sunrise on Penobscot Bay Tuesday morning:
I hope to have one of a sunset over the Pacific to hang next to it soon!
