We didn't have to rush this morning because we only had 80 miles to go to get to our campground near Bangor. When we made our reservations earlier this year, we couldn't get into the campground in Bar Harbor this weekend, so we decided to spend the weekend here near Bangor and explore the town. Then we'll head down to Bar Harbor for our 6-night stay on Sunday. It was a blue-sky, cloudless day with a temperature of 78. We pulled out of our site at 10:00 and stopped at the dump station to empty our black and grey water tanks before leaving the campground.
After that was done, we were ready to hit the road at 10:30. We were on the interstate for almost the entire drive today which is a designated scenic highway. There was very little traffic and no signage at all, but there were trees, trees, and more trees.
We arrived at the Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Hermon, ME just outside of Bangor around noon.
We arrived a little early for check-in which was 1:00, but we were allowed to take our site early.
The package containing the converter for the travel trailer that Bob ordered and had delivered, was waiting for us at the office so we picked it up and were escorted to our site, #81.
We got set up and while I did 3 loads of laundry at their laundromat near to our site, Bob worked on checking out how to install the new converter. Auggie finally got to spend some time outside and enjoy the GRASS. It warmed up a lot to 85 degrees, but with a nice breeze. In the afternoon, I did some online research about the best places to eat lobster in the Bar Harbor area and, of course, what lighthouses to see in the area. Auggie came in after awhile outside to take a nap in one of his favorite positions. All that fresh air finally took its toll.
We had dinner and took our usual walk around the campground as it cooled off from the warm temperatures. Tomorrow Bob will install the converter and I will give Auggie a bath. We also have some errands to run –to the local RV store (supplies to repair the blinds), Pet Smart (dog food), Wal-Mart (groceries), and a little sightseeing in Bangor.
