Reunion time

We made it to Indiana today for Nancy's family reunion.  We spent last night in Caesar Creek State park in Ohio after another long day of driving, over 500 miles.  Very nice park and only $27 per night although we did have a couple of unwanted visitors..  
Only had a 4 hr drive today so we arrived about 1:45pm after some stops.  Finally got back to warm weather with temps here in the 80's today.

Long travel day from Bar Harbor, Maine to Berwick, PA, over 600 miles.  Left at 7:09AM and arrived at 7pm.  From Connecticut on we were in the rain.  Found a very nice private campground tonight for only $35.

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

Sebago Lake

Sebago Lake

We left Sebago Lake early this morning.  It was bright and sunny but cool. We took the coast highway to Bar Harbor and drove through several pretty little towns and some beautiful country.

We made one interesting stop at a store someone had told us about, the store sells wood items crafted by the prisoners at the state prison. There were some really amazing items.

We arrived at our campground about 1:30pm, set up camp then drove to nearby Acadia National Park.  We are going to explore more of the park tomorrow but today we drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain for a wonderful 360 degree view of the area.
