Day 12

Maine, set up camp on Tuesday, just chilled for the evening as we could actually sit outside !  Wednesday we headed into Acadia National Park#2, around 10.30am. Brought our annual National Park ticket $80 to last for the rest of the trip. From there we headed to Gorman’s Mountian , short but steep hike up to fabulous views across the bay and Park .

Today , Thursday 18th, we were up before dawn , 4am to be precise. Why on earth would you do that you ask ?  This is why !

Drove on piglet to the top of Cadillac Mountain to watch the sunrise at the first place the sun touches North American soil.  A little cloudy but well worth the effort.   After that it was back to camp for a cuppa and a snooze in bed.  After brunch we headed back into the park for another gentle hike around the coastline.  It really is beautiful.


Tomorrow’s we head south to Plymouth and Boston. It is beer O’Clock here now. Cheers xxx

  4. I think St John’s, Newfoundland claims the first touch of sunrise for North America, and Cadillac Mountain claims it for USA. (I have a Newfie daughter-in-law so I have to know these things!!)
    That’s a “lobster-eating grin” I see on Chris’s face! Great pictures. I have been on Cadillac Mountain twice and never caught the sunrise.
    Your wonderful adventure continues!
