Day 56 August 4 part 1
Today we’d be leaving Kittery Point, Maine, and continuing our journey north.
After breakfast, Gary and Jane gave us a bunch of travel and campground suggestions for Maine, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island….places they had enjoyed on their travels in their Airstream….info that proved quite handy in the coming weeks.
I know that I mentioned the hospitality that our friends had shown us, but really, words can’t tell you how amazing they both were to us. And I hope that we can someday return the favor. In these short days, they had truly become friends!
The hospitality of their neighbors was also outstanding. From their neighbor that lent us the kayaks the day before, to their next door neighbor, Polly, who stopped by this morning to give us a bounty of blueberries and snap peas from her garden, Kittery Point was obviously a very special place.
We could have easily just hung out here indefinitely, but we knew we had to get back on the road. Of course, before we left, we had to take a few more photos with the very fun welcome sign that had greeted us a couple days ago. And then, off we went.
Up the coast of Maine, we meandered, stopping for ice-cream, and stopping to take photos along the way.
We only made it a short distance, and stopped for the night at Recompence Shore Campground, a campground that Gary and Jane had recommended.
Dinner this night was a pretty fabulous meal. We had fresh lettuce and squash from Jane’s garden, and leftover lobster from our lobster feast. We were living like Kings and Queens!
