Good Morning from Bar Harbor, Maine

Here's my blogging spot this morning.

I'm sitting at that picnic table while the kids play at the playground. We arrived Sunday afternoon after what seemed like a very long drive from home. We left Friday afternoon and stopped in Pocahontas State Park overnight. We pulled out from there around 8:30 Saturday morning driving through D.C., Baltimore and yes, even New York City!  That was a bit hairy!  (We've already devised a route to bypass NYC on the way home.) We made it to Manchester, CT just out side of Hartford Saturday night where we boon-docked in a Sam's Club parking lot.  We got up around 6:30 a.m. and continued our trek north on I-95 and finally made it to our campground on Mt. Desert Island in Maine around 4 p.m. Sunday. When we arrived and got set up, Kelly said, (and I quote) "I can't believe we finally made it."  Apparently he had some doubt we could pull our RV so far and arrive in one piece.

We set up on a site with full hookups (water, electric & sewer), but we weren't 100% satisfied with the location. So Monday, we scoped out another site near the pool, playground and laundry mat and moved the RV.

I took the kids out sight-seeing a little bit Monday afternoon. (I'll blog about Monday evening later.) It  rained overnight Monday and into Tuesday so I drove into Bangor and took the kids to McDonalds and The Maine Discovery Museum.

Today is warm and sunny so we're planning a picnic on Cadillac Mountain and then some pool time here at the campground.
