July 11

Hey there Campers;

 We continued on the Acadia National Park. We stated at the Mt. Desert Narrows. OK Mary Jane & Myron. This is one of your Encore and Thousand Trails facility. We had a beautiful site. The Hilton faced the lake and we could see out to the inlet.

Since we decided to spend the day in the park tomorrow, we took at city bus ride to check out the town. You know who was excited about the city bus. That is probably one of his high lights of any trip. "Ya got to see where the real people live" so says the Ice Cream Man."

Ok. Why, Oh why did we have to get on the bus with the cranks. There were two Jamaican ladies (I only state their heritage  to set the language tone.) who were on their way to work at one of the hotels. The each are sitting across from each other at the window seat. All I got to say is they were loud and wrong. Nothing else need be said.

The bus ride is free and it takes you through out the island on 7 different routes.

The scenery is very rustic. The things you know you will see in a sea port town.

Every house has a pond on it. Most are ,am made. In the 1960's the government paid every home owner to put the ponds in. This was done so each property could have a place to pump from in case of a fire.

The bus driver grew up on the Island so he was able to give us a grand tour of every nook and cranny. We know where we will start tomorrow. After spending 3 hours on the city bus, we strolled through town and the city park.

It was getting late so we decided to call it a night.

Well, until the next time Campers......

  1. I agree with "Ice Cream Man" you have to see what the real people do and how they live. You go ICM

  2. That pond idea was SMART - very smart. The Oakland Hills should have gone with that one...
