One Week = 168 Hours

Efficiency

I need to be more efficient.  I mean gee whizz there is 168 hours in every week, and here I am trying to post a month old adventure.   What have I been doing this past month?  I thought it would make sense to keep this digital diary in chronological order.  Four months ago the process worked perfectly.  We would adventure, then motor down the road and I’d put together some photos, and tell a little story.  Easy Peasy.   The thing is adventuring takes time.  Every day we are blessed with new sights, interesting people, and the challenges of finding the next Wal-Mart and campsite.  We are currently at Higley Flow State Park, New York about sixty miles from the Canadian border.   I’m sitting here on a rainy day reflecting back to our stay in Ellsworth, Maine.    Sheeesh, where did the last 672 hours go?  Whaaauh –  whaaauh – whaaauh, what a baby, poor Dan, he has to think.

Acadia National Park in Maine (ME) is a wonderful great place to visit if you are into nature, bike riding, and hiking.  Like everywhere else the more popular the destination, the more expensive the accommodations will be.  This fixed income gig can only support so much.  We set up home base in Ellsworth, ME about a forty-five minute drive from the Park and Bar Harbor, ME.  The weather was perfect our entire stay.  We drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain, hiked Dorr’s ridge, and walked along the Atlantic shore.  The Park is primarily on Mount Desert Island.  The landscape varies from jagged granite outcropping’s to gentle groomed carriage paths.   We climbed the granite trails, and rode the “Biker and Hiker” only carriage paths.   There are three distinctly marked lakes that provided pristine pure water for the town of Bar Harbor.  You cannot swim in the lakes, but could kayak the lakes.  I found that interesting.

Bar Harbor is a fun coastal heritage rich community.   We did not take advantage of a whale, seal, and puffin sightseeing boat ride.  The weather was a little cool for being out on the water.  Next time for sure, Puffins are so cool.
