It started raining Thursday night and rained all night Thursday, all day Friday and all of Friday night. But this morning was sunny and bright. Clouds moved in and out all day, but by late afternoon, most of the clouds were gone.

Due to Friday’s rain, we mostly sat indoors, except when we went to the Walmart in Ellsworth to stock up on groceries. Friday morning I paid bills and took care of that chore. Friday night’s rains were more of the drizzly sort, but the trees would become loaded with rain and then the water would blow out of them onto the roof. It sounded like out-of-sync rain.

Today we followed US 1 north, which up here is called the Coastal Highway. I guess it hasn’t been the Dixie Highway for many, many miles. We caught glimpses of inlets to the ocean and rivers seeming in a rush to get there, too. Mostly we saw woods, but they were very pretty woods. In the town of Milbridge there were people lining the streets, sitting in lawnchairs, selling lemonade, etc. I guess they heard we were passing through.

on the shores of Passamaquoddy Bay
for the night at Seaview Campground in Eastport, Maine. We have a site right on the shore of Passamaquoddy Bay, and we can see Canada on the other side of the bay. The tide was high when we arrived, but was going out not long after. We hoped to see the whales pass by in Passamaquoddy Bay, but it got dark and we didn’t see or hear them. Maybe in the morning.

Hey guys---we're in Houlton, ME at the nicest campground yet. We've had some very early mornings and long drives, but tomorrow we won't have to get up until at least 7am---sleep in for sure. There's a border patrol office right down the street from us, so we're going to check with them about how much food we're allowed to take across into Canada. Bob looked everywhere to see what we could bring and never found a site, so this is the next best thing. Houlton has a nice grocery store---right behind the Walmart, which boasts a "Super Center"---not, so if we're allowed more food than we have, we'll make a stop there before heading across. See you all tomorrow---safe travels---love ya---gena
