Yesterday afternoon, I grabbed Maine's 50 Rides 1 Nation photo at the entrance of Acadia National Park, then made the loop into Bar Harbor. I had planned on getting some lobster, but it was packed with people, so I kept going to Bangor.
The Maine puns abound. Chow Maine struck me as the funniest, while I gave Maine Course, Maine Squeeze, and Maine Ingredient a chuckle. Then there are the slogans, like "The World's Your Lobster" and "We’re Really Cold But We Have Cheap Lobster." 🤣🤦
I had a clam dinner in downtown Bangor last night. Yummy. I also swung by Stephen King's House to say hi, but I didn't see him 😉. His front gate is a spider web 🤣.
This morning, I left the hotel at 06:30 in a cold fog that turned into light rain in less than an hour. I stopped to put on my rain gear top and to cover the bags. It stayed light but was intermittent until I got back into New Hampshire, where I was able to peel off my gear.
Then I made my way down the Kancamagus Highway to get New Hampshire's 50 Rides 1 Nation photo. It was a lovely ride through White Mountain National Forest. Unfortunately, I didn't have to stop for moose 😳.
I'm stopped for lunch in New Hampton, NH (just outside of Laconia) at the Route 104 Diner. Hopefully my pulled pork and mac-n-cheese will be very tasty. Maybe I'll get pie and coffee after....
So long [for now], and thanks for all the fish! ✌️
