First we stopped at Mount Battie and drive to the top for some spectacular views of central Maine. The view from the top was breathtaking. Looking out on the bay and seeing the towns and cities was gorgeous. Plus we had great views of the many bays and islands.
From there we drove to Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Observatory bridge. We were able to go up in the bridge which is the tallest observatory bridge in the world at over 420 feet tall
After those 2 stops, we decided we needed to make some progress and our stops usually just involved pulling into turn outs, taking a picture or two and leaving. One of the turn outs was at the 45 parallel which is half way between the equator and the north pole!
10 hours after we left our hotels in Central Maine we arrived at our hotel in St Andrews. We drove through the charming smal town in the dark to get a feel for where to head in the morning to see the high tide on the Bay of Fundy.
