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
