Road Trip 2017–New Hampshire to New Brunswick

We started in New Hampshire as we were attending a Graduation Ceremony – and then the car our daughter had been using need to get back to Washington state – so that sounded like a great excuse for a long road trip!  The first day (after dropping the daughters off at Boston to fly home) was heading along the coast – into Maine and ending the day at Bar Harbor.  This was by far the wettest day of the trip – teaming rain all day – and no photo opportunities at the few brief stops we made!  The evening destination was the Saltair Inn which with better weather may have been worth a longer stay – as it was an ideal place to walk the bar and see Acadia National Park.  As it was we got drenched walking to a good dinner spot Galyns’s, but worth the walk! 

The following morning the weather wasn’t quite so bad so did get a good look at the lower parts of Acadia National Park – but Cadillac Mountain was well into the mist.

Leaving Acadia we headed further North East – into Canada and New Brunswick.  Our destination for the evening was St Martin – and it appeared we were the first visitors of the season – and much was closed even at 5pm in the afternoon.  Snacking on our road provisions and breaking onto the handy wine-box kept us going – and we did manage to see the highlights of St Martin before it got dark.
