Here is another day I am writing about a week and a half later, so I will only get the most important points. It was kind of a hard day for me emotionally.

 Deb woke me up around 9:00 to say goodbye to me before she left for work. She was such a nice host. I stayed up and packed all my stuff up. I made a few trips out and puttered around. Part of me didn't want to leave. Matt had asked me to wake him up to say goodbye, so I did.

I drove up to Ogunquit past Matt's restaurants. There was no free public parking near the water and I couldn't stay long so after driving around a bit I just headed north on US-1. I went out closer to the coast on 9 for a while and went through Kennebunkport and then got back on 1. Somewhere around there I stopped at a library and had some bread and hummus with cheese. I got to Portland in the early afternoon and parked on Congress Street. I walked around a cemetery and then down the Congress to the water and back. I liked the bit of town I saw. I drove back through and stopped near a hotel for wifi. After 90 minutes in Portland I headed up US-1 again. It was a pretty drive, through small towns and over bridges. I went through Yarmouth, Freeport, Brunswick and Bath. I randomly made my dinner stop in Wiscasset sometime after 5:00. I parked down on a spit by the harbor to fire up my stove, and randomly got internet, which was nice to have while I cooked beans. I also had tomato, salsa, cilantro and cheese to throw in, yum. I was there almost an hour.

I went through Nobleboro and Waldoboro and then took a shortcut inland on 90 for a bit and got back on 1 just south of Camden. I always liked Camden but I just didn't feel like stopping this time. I felt guilty with every town I passed. I had thought about parking in Camden for the night, but my goal was to get to Acadia as early as I could and I felt like getting a bit farther north for the night. Belfast was maybe a half hour north. It was getting on dusk though and my GPS tried to take me over a pedestrian bridge on the way to the Comfort Inn. I snapped some sail boat photos and desperately called Dad for directions. It had been a lonely melancholy day on the beautiful Maine coast unfortunately. But once I parked at the big hotel I could finally relax. I think I just watched shows and then ended up texting people and having a good text conversation finally with a best friend from home. I think I tried to fall asleep early but it ended up being later.
