The Coast of Maine


August 30, 2017

It has been over three weeks since the wedding in Nashville and here we are in Bar Harbor!  For those that don’t know, this is one of my favorite places.  Jane and I made many trips here.  I came for three years after her death before the Airstream pointed me West.  I am excited to be able to show off my local knowledge to Leslie and treat her to all things Lobster and Blueberry.

It was a journey.  It seemed to me that we couldn’t decide wether to race to Maine or poke along.  We ended up taking our time. In hindsight we should have hurried. Not to minimize the places we have been, but there was a little too much rain and fog along the Blueridge and Skyline Parkways. If you can’t see the vistas you should at least be smelling the ocean breeze.

We enjoyed it all and now we are here.

By the way I’ve had a few comment that if I don’t post often, you don’t know where we are.  I do keep The Map tab above updated with our progress and campgrounds.

Family Time

August 12, 2017

On the 18th of July we headed back East.  We had the world famous Bass Lake Festival the last weekend in July and a special wedding near Nashville to attend on August 5. Happy to say both events exceeded my high expectations.

We left Nashville last Tuesday. We are heading Northeast. Slowly poking our way towards Maine.  Today we are on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Blowing Rock, NC. Luckily we didn’t make it to Charlottesville today.
