Hello Acadia National Park!
We made it! Finally we are here and we couldn't be happier. It is weird to be all the way across the US again only this time we are at the top instead of the bottom of the U.S. We arrived here on Monday after traveling from New Hampshire. The roads here are mostly two lane country type roads and not interstates or highways. That said, the going is very slow.

Some areas of the Atlantic are so calm that you think it is a lake instead of an ocean. Nothing like the roaring Pacific at home.
Don has had two lobster tails and a seafood platter since we have been here. I am not a real big seafood person so I have just had some shrimp but they were some of the best shrimp I have ever had. So fresh and sweet. Nothing like the ones we get at home. No clam chowder yet but soon. We have reservations here until Tuesday but not sure if we are going to stay until then or not. We have
