Nights Six, Seven and Eight – St. Andrews NB

St Andrews by the Sea is a beautiful small town at the end of a peninsula. These pictures were taken from the outside seating in a small restaurant with good food and reasonable prices. I could summer here for sure.  A truly wonderful place.StAndrews1 StAndrews2_cloud StAndrews3

Nights Five and Six – Near Bar Harbor, Maine

Bar Harbor has exquisite scenery, but the town is an overcrowded tourist trap.  The traffic is horrendous and the roads in an out were in heavy construction to the point that we drove on 8 miles of jolting rocks to get there. That said, I did consume two Maine lobsters and we did enjoy the scenery. The campground “Narrows Too” was OK, but a bit dusty. But we met our caravan crew there. Lots of old folks from all over the U. S. plus one from Canada. Age range from about fifty to eighty-four.  Mostly couples, but 2 singles.  24 Motor home in all, headed for Saint Andrews by the Sea in Canada as our next stop.

Fourth Night – New Hampshire

Wakeda Campground in New Hampshire was very nice. Wooded, but accessible and easy for a big rig maneuvering.  Breakfast in the morning at a nearby apple orchard named Applecrest Farm.  Truly fantastic.  Yes we do exist. It is not just a motorhome picture this time. 🙂New_Hampshire_Farm_BreakfastNH_Farm_Linda

Second Night – North of Harrisburg

Another short day (150 miles).  Actually this was originally planned as for as our first night before we decided to avoid leaving DC on a Monday morning.  Hot weather, but an easy drive.  We did avoid a thunderstorm by stopping so early in the day.  Twin Grove CampgTwinGroveround is a bit out of the way.  But no freeway noise, and nice overall. Pennsylvania scenery is nice, but we are looking forward to a lot more as we go north.
