Boothbay Harbor was more of what I thought of when I thought of Maine coast. There was seafood, salty air, wooden piers and the bright sun reflecting on the water. Of course, it was very touristy as well as it seemed that every whale watching tour stopped in the harbor. Sure, whale watching is great, but I guess ever since the manatee watching in Belize, I could never justify a boat tour just to watch something. So I took pictures of all that was kitschy in Boothbay Harbor. I was able to get a lobster roll. I figured I had to take one in before the trip was over. It was alright. The lobster itself was the best I've ever had. But it's just mayo and lettuce on a french roll.

After passing Boothbay I passed over bridges and it took a long long time because pedestrian crossings in Maine are a serious thing. You must stop because of law (which is very good, but they make sure to have lots of signs that mention this every few miles) at the crossings, and people don't group themselves to cross all at one time. This means that people are consistently crossing and it delays traffic a lot. I'd rather that than someone getting mowed over, but it was a annoyance.

Finally I passed the bridge going to Acadia onto Mt Desert Island or whatever it was called.
