A Day of Remembrance

Memorial Day 
May we always remember those that gave there all
and those that have sacrificed so much


We got up to a light rain and we traveled in a light rain until we stopped for lunch. There were still Memorial Day Parades happening and we saw a few small Memorial Day Services. Our weather was cloudy until late afternoon when the sun appeared. 

The drive from Bath up the coast on Highway 1 is a beautiful drive - probably even more so when it isn't raining!
Rockland, ME
This area of Maine is like where we stayed in Vermont - no billboards, just small signs telling you what is nearby. There's  usually 1, 2, or 3 little signs on a pole. Pardon the water spots on the  windshield.


Another interesting item - there are Dunkin' Donuts everywhere in New Hampshire and Maine. You can get donuts at many gas stations and also at Dunkin' Donut Shops. For the record, we haven't had one yet!

It was raining so we stopped for lunch at the Riverside Cafe in Ellsworth, Maine, instead of picnicking.

They had homemade blueberry pie! Did I ever mention that I love blueberries? The pie was awesome - it was warm and oh soooo good! I had to taste it before I took a photo. Oh yeah, lunch was really good, too.

Our new rental outside of Surry, Maine, is quite nice. We are in a rural area and have this view from out deck. That is Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. At 1530 feet, it is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard. 

We took a drive tonight and stopped at a beach. Here are a few photos - I'm not sure where we were at but I do know we weren't very far from our current home.







The next couple of days are supposed to be sunny. One day we will be at Acadia National Park and the other day will be another adventure. Time will tell...

In Bath, Maine, we stayed at the Historic 1800's Apt. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet, and had everything we needed. The kitchen and bathroom were very small but it all worked out fine. We could walk to the bridge and to downtown. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely go back to this rental - we give it 5 stars!

I was wondering if you'd make your way to Acadia National Park ... I love that view of Cadillac Mountain.

You'll love Acadia. Eat a popover for me, if you stop at the restaurant. Glad you got some blueberries (pie, that is).
