Where I stayed
The weather yesterday was excellent, although over night it got damp and it was a chilly night. We had to wait until the dew was off the tents before we tore down. Then, we had to wait for Joe, who had to visit the mens room...again.
The get away was less smooth than we’d preferred as Steve and I made it out onto the road before the traffic arrived at the exit of the camp site and the others didn’t. What Ian and the gang failed to note was that Steve and I had made an immediate left onto Hwy 2 East, so they instead went west
Once we got into Maine we stayed on the state highway until Bangor, where we got onto the interstate to avoid the city
As we reached Eastport, the road wound its way out onto the coast and we could see waterlines of salt water. We found the campsite fairly easily just before the entrance into town situated on the shore of Fundy's Bay. We grabbed 2 sites to share amongst us, but Steve beelined it to the entrance of the camp area where there were cabins available. He'd had enough of camping and no sleep after one night. The rest of us were relishing the opportunity of a good night sleep without the snoring as well, so we didn't get in his way.
Once we got camp set up, Ian made a quick run into town to pick up some beers for the evening and check out places to eat. Bubba checked out the restaurant and bar attached to the campsite office and said it looked okay, so we decided eat there, which was a great call. A few of us had a feed of fresh lobster from the tank, which was prepared by Frank, the proprietor, as his staff were at a wedding for the evening. Frank did a great job and we left well fed and happy, but not before stopping into the bar for a nightcap. Ian bought some firewood so we could get the fire pit going. I did a night run to the road about 200 meters away from camp where there was a pile of wood and borrowed some so we wouldn't run out. We sat around yakking for a while and then people started to retire. Again we called it an evening fairly early as everyone was pretty beat.
