Acadia National Park

Our first National Park visit in Velma is going to be hard to top. Acadia National Park is absolutely breathtaking in the fall. Words won't do justice to what we experienced, but I'm going to do my best to try and share with you how we spent our time in the park. 

Since this was our first National Park visit, we made sure to stop by the Visitor's Center at Acadia and pick up a Passport! The Passport program is an awesome way for travelers to track their visits to National Parks across the country. Each park's visitor's center offers a cancelled stamp station for you to use to document the date of your visit that particular park. Often, depending on the size of the park, there will be several cancellation stations throughout the park at noted landmarks. The Passport is organized by region and, along with space for your stamps, has a list of all of the national parks, forests, seashores and landmarks by state. My hope is that we visit so many and use the Passport so much that we end up having to buy an expansion pack!

Portland (East)

Portlandia(s).  I don't know if it is a coincidence, but Jeremy and I have soft spots for both PDX and Portland (East). Waterfront city?  Check.  Known for their food scene?  Check.  Penchant for craft brews, pup-friendliness and focus on sustainability. Check, check, checkity-check. We didn't have nearly as much time as we wanted to explore Portland (East), but we know we will come back for more adventuring.

LOBSTAH!

We've finally arrived in Maine. From Northampton, we overnighted at another Walmart in Rochester, NH. We booked the first part of our stay at Recompence Shore Campground at Wolfe's Neck Farm. It is, to date, my favorite campsite. We lucked out as we hadn't really done our research into our options.  We ended up picking a campground that many of our nomad friends have enjoyed in their own travels.
