Friday, July 29, 2016, Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort, Belfast, ME - 65.6 Miles, 695.1 Miles for the Trip

Yesterday we met a couple traveling with a new to them Casita 17 that would be moving into Don & Anne's site when we left today. They toured both trailers.

Today was a fairly quiet drive on ME 3 & US 1. We planned to stop & take photos of a lighthouse near the campground, but we had already hooked up the trailers & the road to the lighthouse said no RVs or trailers. We took the scenic tour around the area before heading to Belfast. We stopped for photos of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge - it has interesting cables &, if you want, a trip to the top of one of the towers.

We are in the Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort, our most expensive campground of the trip - $60.00+ per night for water & electric, parked on dirt (Resort it isn't, although the ocean is in sight.) Don & Anne are on the other side of the campground is site 34.

After setting up & a quick shower, we headed off to visit with John & Elaine Bielenberg. John is a retired faculty member and colleague of Don's from Binghamton University. We had a nice chat, then went to see two of John's volunteer projects at the Penobscot Maritime Museum, a camera obscura & a Model T truck built as a hands on display.

After that we drove to a gathering of antique cars & street rods. I took far too many photos to post here, most are on a separate page.

For dinner, John & Elaine took us to the Whale's Tooth Pub & Restaurant.

Until next time -
