Day 58 August 6 Part 1
On our way north we couldn’t help but notice how so many of the houses had such beautiful garages and barns. Often they were nicer than the houses themselves. I wondered if they were all man-caves.
Made a short stop in Lincolnville to load up on caffeine at Green Tea Coffee. They roast their own coffee, and their selection of loose teas rivaled any big city tea shop I’ve ever seen. And, they had two very cute doggies hanging out inside the shop.
Hyped on caffeine, we continued north, and accidentally stumbled upon Camden State Park, and Mt Battie. Except for that it was a bit foggy, we were treated to some pretty freakin’ nice views. Dax and Trixie liked it up there, and were nice enough to pose for a bunch of portraits.
And then, onward, to Belfast we went. Belfast was a cool little city-town. It was hip enough that I thought maybe I could find a decent hairstylist to cut my hair. My two month-old hair cut was starting to look scraggly.
Well, hairstylist shopping was a bust, but what we did find was a little lobster shack, and a brewery. First stop was the food truck. Lobster rolls. I’d had better, but they were decent, and hit the spot.
Second stop, was the brewery. Marshall Wharf Brewing Company. We’d intended to take a great big walk around the waterfront area, but one of the first things we saw was the brewery, and that’s as far as we got.
Life was sweet….hanging out on the patio of the brewery, sipping beers, talking to people. All of a sudden, the wind picked up and the sky started getting dark. Uh-oh!! We chugged our beers, and high-tailed it back to the Space Shuttle!!
It started sprinkling on us when we were about a block away from Fiona. And then we heard thunder. And I swear, 15 seconds after we all climbed inside Fiona, the skies just opened up and it poured rain.
It was too dastardly to drive, so we just sat there for 20 minutes, until the storm subsided just as quickly as it had come on. With just a lite drizzle coming down, we continued our drive to Bar Harbor, where we checked into our campground for the night.
