Northward Bound this Summer

I said we had a plan!  And what an adventurous plan it is.  At this writing our summer will consist of approximately 3500 miles, at least 12 reserved campgrounds, hiking, swimming, canoeing, train riding (and dinner in a train car, if Lesa gets her way) and of course lots of campfires and marshmallows.  I will be in Photography Heaven if the sites are true to reality.

Our first stop will be Acadia National Park in Maine.  We will be staying at Acadia for a week.  According to the following site, we will have more than enough to see and do.  Besides, this is a beautiful site even if you don’t get to travel there.  Check out the photograph gallery.  Breathtaking!

We will be staying at Seawall Campground http://www.acadiamagic.com/seawall-campground.html , on the southwest end of the Mount Desert Island. Bar Harbor is on the other side of the island, but a little distance won’t keep us from heading over for a Maine Lobster meal! And, oh, all the things to see and do between Seawall and Bar Harbor. So exciting.

Next stop……….Covered Bridge Campground in Conway, New Hamshire.
