We still had a two hour drive from Quebec City to the USA border and, unfortunately, we didn't think ahead about getting gas. Figuring there would be nothing but trees and moose between Quebec City and Bangor, I pulled off the highway at the biggest town I could find to fuel up. The station was extremely clean and everyone looked normal. The gas …
... North on US.1 along the Coastal route, and crossed the border at St. Stephen, NB. A very friendly border official provided a hassle free experience for our seamless entry back into Canada. Yahoo!! Eh! Our plans to stay in St. George for only one night got changed by Hurricane Arthur, we decided that caution was the order of the day, so we decided to stay another night, albeit with no electricity. We also upgraded to a beautiful room with a jacuzzi, ahhhhh!!! and the rest as they say.... ...
So, we couldn't leave without brazenly subverting federal law and undermining our duly elected, but we just had to sneak into Arcadia National Park. So we looked for places where lots of cars were parked on the road and, parked. Just by the original Abbé Museum on Hwy. 3. This is at the foot of Cadillac Mtn. Walking across the street we headed up this lovely tree lined path which soon developed into a trial and test of our burly western fortitude. It ...
... ten minutes before I start complaining that I am cold and miserable. We hadn’t planned very well (or at all) for potential wet weather activities.
We decide to grab a sandwich from the Downeast Deli and have a picnic in the park anyway, albeit a picnic in the car park at Echo Beach Lake. Chris has pastrami on rye and I have corned beef reuben. These are not sandwiches we get in Greggs back home. Suffice to say, the ...
I haven't blogged in a few days because the internet at the campground is horrible. The owner told me it was because of the weather, but several days have passed, and even in beautiful weather the best I can get is a VERY slow connection if I sit outside and even then it usually locks up after awhile. So here I am sitting in an internet cafe and I will try and catch you up on my adventures, one day at a time.

TravelPod Member ReviewsWonder View Inn Bar Harbor
Wonder View Inn and Suites is the perfect place to stay for guests who want to enjoy excitement of downtown, but prefer to retire to the "country" for bedtime. Situated on top of a hill, less than a 12 minute walk from downtown Bar Harbor, the Wonder View Inn and Suites provided us the perfect oasis without breaking the bank. Wonder View rooms include a refrigerator, access to a pool, continental breakfast in the lobby, enjoyment of the glass-encased restaurant for food or cocktails and access to it's sister resort, the Bluenose, next door. For those lucky enough to have the 38-45 rooms, you will have a fantastic view of the Harbor (particularly on the 4th of July!) from your balcony.
