Jul 6, 2020 - Great Day

Hi Everyone! Rather restless night, glad to not have been in a tent with all the dampness and humidity but it felt like we were sleeping on the ground! But we did sleep, and it appeared to have rained in the night so it was a much easier start to the day than if we had been in the tent! Maine gray morning! Cool but actually very comfortable riding! It is starting to feel like a routine on day 4. Things are finding their way back to the same place they were taken out of the pannier bags, that is part of getting organized; finding the best...

Oct 24, 2017 - Day 6, Thursday, October 12

Day 6, Thursday, October 12 Still feeling the flush of my status as an “Honored Citizen”, I woke up rested and ready to enjoy our final gourmet breakfast at Bass Cottage Inn before we started out on our less than four hour drive to Portland, ME. One of our travel traditions is to buy a piece of art on our trips and use that as our all-purpose souvenir to take us back to the memories we made there. We looked a bit for art on our trip to Spain, but we didn’t find many galleries we were interested in, and nothing really spoke to us. So for...

Sep 28, 2013 - The Moorings, Belfast. Me.

The usual suspects, less Joe & Doris, gathered in Belfast at the Moorings, where great weather, food, cocktails and wine were enjoyed by all. Day hikes, winery tours/tasting, campfires and a wonderful restaurant on site make this location a good midcoast destination for a Fall weekend.

Jul 13, 2013 - Boothbay Harbor and Area

We’ve moved up the coast to Belfast, located on Penobscot Bay. Up until yesterday the weather has been cold and rainy so we haven’t done a lot. We spent one day driving around Belfast getting acquainted with the area. Belfast was a ship building center in the past and there are many beautiful, restored Federal and Victorian homes. The harbor area looks like many other area harbors, with shops, restaurants, marine services and boats; lots and lots of boats. There is a footbridge that crosses the Passagassawakeag River but it’s closed for...

Aug 26, 2012 - Back to the US - Saint John to Belfast, ME

Written Sunday night: We’re just meandering down the coast of Maine, in search of a lobster dinner and some scenery. It feels good to be back in the States for a couple of reasons. First, I don’t have to worry about how much they will get me for on the dollar for changing my money. At one Tim Horton, it was $3 on $50. It seems to vary according to how each business’ cash register is set, maybe I should have just changed several hundred at a bank, but they get you for fees, too. By the way, the exchange used to be pretty even, but OUR dollar...

Sep 12, 2010 - Belfast, Maine

Gary got up this morning after having a few pints last night. We had a lovely cooked breakfast and had a conversation with the couple from Texas who bought us a drink last night. We switched on the sat nav and then proceeded in the wrong direction for a couple of miles before Gary decided that the sat nat was right this time. We drove through the ‘lake’ district, it was a beautiful sight to see and we both agreed that we’d love to live in a house that overlooked one of these lakes. We were heading towards our evening destination of Belfast,...

Jul 16, 2010 - Road Trip

The First Family arrived in ANP today and we decided to go somewhere else to avoid the crowds and roadblocks. Before we left Seawall, we stopped for lunch at the Common Good Café, a for profit café that provides free soup for needy people on Mount Desert Island, no government or institutional help. They have served 10,000 bowls of soup. WiFi access and good food, I’ll be back. We drove south toward Belfast, ME. As we left Mount Desert Island we passed the Trenton Airport where POTUS flew in on “mini” Air Force 1 (looks like a Gulf V) where...

Aug 17, 2009 - Summer Catches Us

Summer has definitely caught up with us up here in the corner of Maine and it is H-O-T and humid. We have had highs around 90 with humidity in the high 60th percentile. At night, it cools off to around 69 degrees. It is just too darn hot and uncomfortable for our liking, but we really can't complain. We have had so many perfect days this summer as we have traveled up the east coast. It is supposed to cool down later this week, so we will put up with it for another few days. -- We have basically just hunkered down inside with the AC for the...

Aug 13, 2009 - Moose Point State Park

Today, it is much cooler and not as humid. We don't even need the AC on and have all the windows open to let in the breeze. Being close to the water helps too, I think. Whatever it is, we like it. The air feels wonderful today. There is supposed to be rain off the coast of Maine but it isn't predicted to move inland. By the weekend, it is supposed to get hotter and more humid, so we will enjoy today's coolness. -- We packed a picnic lunch this morning and headed out to Moose Point State Park, a couple of miles north of the RV park. We paid...

Aug 12, 2009 - Exploring Belfast

I was hoping to be able to watch the meteor showers last night, but we had rain. This morning, it was foggy looking although the overcast was high. John had the fan on early because it was also humid. The sun finally made an appearance late this afternoon. -- We needed to replenish groceries so we headed into Belfast this morning. We started the day with breakfast at a little cafe downtown that has been there since 1949. We both had crab omelettes and while I thought it was good, John thought it was dry and needed something. -- After...

Aug 11, 2009 - More Pix

This evening, we went for a walk around the park. The tide was out and we could walk down on the rocky beach out in front of the RV park. Surprisingly, there were no bitey bugs out and about. It was very beautiful and serene. The bright blues of the sky and water earlier turned into lavenders, pinks and greys this evening.

Pretty Damn Nice!

Aug 11, 2009 - Belfast, Maine

Today was another travel day and we were both anxious to move further north up the coast. There was nothing wrong with the park in Boothbay, it just wasn't our favorite place, plus hitch itch was beginning to set in. We traveled up Highway 1, around the coves and crannies along the coast about 65 miles to Belfast, which is just north of Rockland and Rockport. -- Since I wrote several days ago that we have not encountered much traffic in Maine, we have encountered a lot of traffic in Maine. It was especially congested going through the...
