Days 55 and 56 Maine
Trip Start Jul 13, 2005
24Trip End Sep 20, 2005
Thursday was technically a day off but to justify our driving out to Bar Harbor to do Acadia National Park, we squeezed in a stop at College of the Atlantic to make it seem worth the gas. COA is this TEENY little school with one major and just a few hundred students, including Sara, this girl we met at the sidewalk sale in Bath way back in August! It is always nice to see some familiar faces, again coincidentally, along the way =). Everyone at the school was uberly crunchy and their dining hall was so vegan friendly, it made me consider wanting to go back to school (haha yeah right)
On Friday we rolled out of Bar Harbor to Colby College where Rebecca's cousin goes to school and where we thus had an "in" to table on campus. We snuck out after a short shift to go swimming at the school's private lake (yes, private lake, you read it right) where all the students hung out and where I met this really fun girl from Menlo Park. Yey Cali girls =). The lake was beautiful of course and I couldn't imagine being able to go there whenever I wanted before, after, or between class!
We met up with Debi, our Maine organizer, after Colby for an event she had scheduled at U of M, Farmington. Not such a great turnout since it was Friday afternoon but 3 girls said they would be on the bus for the rally!
