Maine 2018

We did a short stay in Wells, Maine for 3 nights.  Like that area but so hard to get a spot to camp.  It is a great place to get some of the best lobster rolls, for the best price, we have found.  We got parked, plugged in, slides out and headed for Shaine's of Maine.  Suppose to have great ice cream but it is the lobster roll and clam chowder we go for.  Next afternoon we were out doing some sight seeing and stopped at a restaurant on the coast where we had gone in the past.  This time we tried the Haddock sandwich, it was actually some of the best haddock we have had, good size piece of fish and so flaky.  Next day it was lobster roll time again at Shaine's.

We also went to the Seashore Trolley Museum. It is the largest one of it kind in the US. Sure was fun to see all the old trolleys for all around the world. I remember ridding on some of these kinds in San Francisco when I was a kid. Even got to ride on one of the old Trolleys.

We have now moved onto Trenton, Maine.  Second night here it was more lobster (wish I liked lobster) at the Down East Lobster Pound. Our friends Lily and Ian joined us.  The view from the outside upper deck is amazing.  Another day we went to the local IGA grocery store and Len bought two lobsters, he grilled those and really enjoyed them.

Today we caught the local free bus and headed to the Villages of Bar Harbor, from there we transferred to the bus that takes you to Arcadia National Park.  Today was the busiest day, according to the bus driver, that he has seen this season.  We rode the loop around the park and will return in the truck and get a closer look at some of the areas we would like to see.  We transferred back to the Village bus and once back  at the Village we walked around.  Stopped for a snack and cold beer, before we wandered through some of the stores with all the other tourist that were in town.  One of the big cruise ships was in port so that made for more people also.

Will be here another week and half so will add more later...…
