It was cooler last night as the AquaHot fans ran off and on all night. This morning I even flipped on the engine preheat about an hour before we planned to leave. We took our time getting ready and had a lot to put away after being here for 6 nights. We finally pulled out a little after 11, it was finally up to 50 degrees outside. The engine preheat had the CAT up to 90 degrees and it started easy.
We only had about 150 miles to go and our first stop was for fuel just after noon. We took on 70 gallons. While I fueled Bonnie went in and picked up sandwiches and drinks for lunch. Then back on I95 to Bangor, then over Route 1A to Ellsworth and Trenton. We are at Narrows Too CG just before the bridge to Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor. We are staying here under PassPort America which gives us 50% off the campground fee. Plan is to be here 3 nights. No pictures today, I drove the whole way. They have these crazy rocks here at the entrance to your site and I guess it is to keep you off the grass. I was talking to the work campers and a lot of people hit them and damage their rigs. I almost backed into one but thanks to Bonnie she got me stopped in time.
It was raining when I got up this morning so no big hurry to get going. I did finally wake Bonnie at 10 and we got ready to go. It was a light rain and so we headed for the Acadia NP visitors center first.

Next we stopped at Thunder Hole and the tide was out so we got a good look at it but no Thunder.

Nice and sunny this morning. We are planning to head back to the park and Cadillac Mountain and take a drive over to Bass Harbor, Bonnie wants another lobster.
First Bonnie decided to go down and look for "unique" shells and rocks at the shoreline here in the CG. I believe we are taking back a good share of the Maine Coastline. Then shortly after noon we headed out with Cadillac Mountain as our first destination. It was pretty busy up there today but we did finally find a parking spot and it was in a good location. We walked around and enjoyed the views. It was a bit hazy so the picture again are not that great.

The forecast is for some more cool weather.
