With the KahBang music festival having been canceled, Mark and I decided to make the most of the weekend and drive down the coast of Maine to see "Vacationland". We had been told to visit Camden a hundred times by friends and coworkers, so it was time to make it happen. We planned to leave early Saturday morning and drive down highway 95 to see …
... and Maine and seeing the sign at the border. We made a quick "pit stop" (the last of hundreds) at a rest stop a few miles up the interstate. I remember smelling the pine trees during the early afternoon and welcomed the eventuality that in a couple of hours, we'll be "home" and in our own house, our own kitchen, living room, bathroom and, of course, our own bedroom and bed.
The further we drove, the longer it seemed to take. But finally, ...

The fort was never attacked or fired a shot in defense of the river, but it was temporarily used to garrison 20-54 troops during the Civil War and about 575 troops from Connecticut lived at the fort for a month during the Spanish-American War due to local concern that there were unknown ...

I haven't been able to find anything obvious, so my plan is to just keep on going until I can figure this out. It's Labor Day weekend anyway, so there isn't anything I can do now. Possibly on Tuesday I may be able to take the Mini in to a garage to have ...

During one of my trips to Rockland, I parked as close to the Atlantic Ocean as I could without getting the tires wet - and will do the same thing in northern California to show the Pacific. See photo.
Access to Wifi will be hit and miss, we'll check in as we can - for the next 3 months.
Time to wake the dog.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHigh Tide Inn Camden
The High Tide Inn is the definition of "Home Away From Home." From the moment we arrived to the moment we pulled out of the long driveway, we were treated as family. Mark and I arrived late on Saturday having driven down the coast of Maine and the owners waited up to greet us and make sure we were comfortable in our cottage. We were on the second floor of a cozy cottage that included our own private porch and kitchen. We could even see the ocean from our windows.
In the morning, we walked to the main house where a complimentary popover breakfast is served from 7:30 to 10 on the weekends. We were served warm popovers and muffins and helped ourselves to endless mugs of coffee and fresh fruit. The breakfast was served on a gorgeous wrap-around porch on the back of the house overlooking the ocean. You couldn't paint a prettier picture. The living room was cozy with white and dark blue decorations and a cozy fire place where I could imagine curling up next to during a snow storm. After finishing our scrumptious popovers, we enjoyed a walk down the sprawling lawn decorated with lawn chairs to their private beach to dip our feet in the frigid water.
When it was time to leave, check out was a breeze and the staff was all smiles and warm wishes for a safe drive. The High Tide Inn is a quick five minute drive to downtown Camden but is tucked away off of the main road and provides peace and serenity to its visitors without the noise of the town or cars driving by. This is an oasis in an already beautiful town and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.
