Day 18 July 1 Acadia National Park, ME

As I had only booked the Park campsite for 2 days we moved to a KOA closer to the Yarmouth Ferry. We parked in downtown Bar Harbor and saw the sights (see photo). Lobster is big here and just about every boat in the harbor is a lobster boat.

I found out at the Visitors Bureau that the Bar Harbor Rotary Club was meeting at noon. It seemed like a good idea to do a make-up so at 11:30 I left Mavis in town and headed north to an assisted living center where the meeting was being held. The address was not in the GPS so I had to use dead reckoning. Mt Desert Island has the worst road direction signs I have ever seen. The roads are narrow so you have to go along way to get turned around. They often wait until you make a turn before a sign tells you what road you are now on. The locals say to just go to Hulls Cove and turn left. There are no signs in Hulls Cove. I drove for an hour and a half before finally finding the meeting. Lunch was over and the club was planning their big July 4th event. I did get a flag to prove I made it to the meeting.  It took about 10 minutes to get back to Bar Harbor where I picked up Mavis.
