Jul 31, 2011 - Relax and prep day

Today was a day to relax and do the final prep for our trip north. We did get out to Wal Mart to pick up a couple of last minute things but then we went back to Sally and Charlie's home and relaxed on the deck. A bunch of us then went out to dinner in Bath, ME and sat outside on their deck next to the river. It was a very nice day and evening. Tomorrow we will leave around 8:00 am.

It was another sunny one today, a perfect day for exploring and a picnic. We bought the neatest little picnic container at WalMart and it keeps the sandwiches and cokes cold. It was only $7 - a bargain indeed. I always worry about hauling ham sandwiches with mayo around without them staying cold. I usually pack them with an ice pack, but this little container has it all built in. -- Anyway, we headed off towards the coast once again. We wanted to explore Bailey Island and the surrounding areas. We passed through pretty little towns and...
