    Drive to Bar Harbor

    September 27, 2017 in the United States

    We passed through customs at 8:00 am. The border patrol went back twice to check our plate. He smiled when he returned the second time and said "And Pioneer plates too."
    We were on a Scenic Byway called Old Canada Road. Jean took some good photos which you will see below. There were multiple moose crossing signs along the highway. I wanted to see a moose; Jean did not. About 140 miles into the drive, the skies became overcast and we drove through a heavy mist for about 20 miles. 40 miles from Bar Harbor, the skies had cleared. The temperature in Bar Harbor is in the low 60's; comfortable after the past few days of heat. There was a roadside timber retaining wall just north of Moscow, Maine that the residents decorated with birdhouses. The roads through northern Maine provided the best "drive" of the trip so far. Beautiful scenery. We arrived in Bar Harbor around 2:30 and moved luggage into our room. We walked to a cafe known for their lobster rolls and we shared one. Ooh...good! We are about 2800 miles into our trip.Read more

    Bass Harbor Light Station

    September 29, 2017 in the United States

    About 12 miles from Bar Harbor lies Bass Harbor's Light Station. This lighthouse has the distinction of being the most photographed lighthouse in Maine. The lighthouse is still in operation and the residence attached to it is occupied by an active Coast Guard member.
    After leaving the lighthouse; we stopped at the Seal Cove Auto Museum. The museum chronicles the 15 year debate of whether to allow automobiles on the island starting around 1900. It also displays about 100 early autos and motorcycles. The displays of the autos and the yarn of the debate made for an interesting stop.
    We had a late lunch at Bar Harbor Inn and then some maintenance on the car filled the rest of the afternoon. Checked and topped the lube in the differential and overdrive. Greased the chassis and adjusted the brake wedges a couple clicks.
