Love lobster, love the ocean views, love Maine. You're making me long for a return trip. Great report and beautiful photos.
I wondered while I was up there, if I lived here how long would it take for me to get tired of lobster.

That was something Rhonda picked up. Nice surprise and pretty tasty, I thought it was a little pricey until I got taken for $8.50 a day later for a sliver of key lime pie.

Jodi ready for a bike trip yet?

Thanks for taking me to Maine. I should be there next month.

Can I ask how much the lobsters were ? They are very pricey here In Vancouver as they have to be air freighted

Bob, the best deal we found was at the Quoddy Lobster Pound in Eastport. Two 1lb lobsters, cole slaw, ear of corn, baked potato, bread, and a drink for $17.95. If you want to steam your own we saw several signs for live lobsters from $5 to $6.

THANK YOU. That sounds reasonable.

as between 2 key lime pies or 2 1lb lobsters, it's an easy decision

I think we are going to ride up to Eastport and have what you had

Sorry we missed you too. I'd like to take C.C. for a ride down your way sometime this summer.

Thursday night we had the campground to ourselves, when we came back from riding Friday the campground had filled up quite a bit. Next door to us a family had set all there stuff up. Mom, dad, three kids, and a dog that barked at everything that moved. The kids were just kids, not really out of control just a little loud. At first it was starting to get on my nerves but as I looked around their campsite and saw the tents, chairs, toys, pets, mom and dad hustling around trying to cook supper and keep an eye on the kids and telling a dog to shut up I thought to myself, crap that was us just a few short years ago. Watching that scene unfold I wondered if these parents as harried as they were at this point could even imagine looking back in a few years and wishing they could have made time stand still at this point.

Our night ends with the sound of a little boy giggling to no end, it was so sweet we couldn't help but giggle ourselves. Such a great moment of pure happiness mixed with a bit of sadness as it brings back to mind a time in our lives where the giggles of little kids was an everyday part of life. As iDave would say you have to live in the moment, and right now sitting by the fire with the one that helped create all those great memories is right where I want to be.

We're up early Saturday morning and need to get rolling since we have three days to get home and we're taking the long way to get there. Sure is hard to get motivated knowing this marks the point where the trip is winding down and we'll soon be home. We pack as quietly as we can since the neighbors are still asleep. We owe it to them to be courteous this morning since they were lights out and all quiet by nine last night. We say goodby to Somes Harbor and begin a long twisty ride to Wilmington, VT.



We rode over the Penobscot Narrow Bridge. Next time we'll stop here and spend more time at the bridge and Ft. Knox.



As the day goes on we can tell by temperature we are definately heading south and away from the coast. These people have the right idea, enjoying a warm June day on the Saco river.







I sure am going to miss the blue water of the northeast.









Once we got into New Hampshire we had to ride Hurricane Mountain Road. It was suggested by many people before we left and it did not disapoint. It would have been a lot more fun with less weight on the bike and without all the oncoming Harleys that seem to like the center of the road. We came down the other side of Hurricane Mountain Road and dropped into Conway. That's when we realized why we were seeing so many Harleys, it was bike week in Laconia. Apparently they had a real good turn out this year. We got into Wilmington late, checked into our room, ate dinner and split an $8.50 sliver of Key Lime pie. Here's me reliving how big that lobster was I had last night.

.

Tomorrow NY, NJ, and stay in PA where we honeymooned 25 years earlier.

Some moments just need to be on canvas. I suggest you try this... great way to have a moment hanging on the wall to bring you back in an instant. I was at the same site in September 2007. referring to your MDI Camp Site.

Great post!! Jeez...I didn't think I was going to get something in my eye this morning reading your report! Our trips definitely share a lot of similarities, but I like your pics better

I need to get to typing on my newest report from Inyo Forest

Thank you LD, you're too nice. If we make it down there sometime maybe we can trade tent space for a couple hours of chores. Rhonda grew up on a farm and I could pull weeds or something.

Thanks Mike. I can't believe how horrendous my writing is even after proof reading before submitting each post. I noticed in your quote I wrote where instead of wear, a few post back I used there instead of their. Oh well, I guess you all are getting most of what I mean to say.
