Heading for Acadia

We are finally in Maine and, well, I do like the change in weather.    I really can’t believe we are in the second most northern state in the continental US.  My mom and I have never been here before but my dad has been here once.  We are all loving it.  our cruising friends, Jon and Jill urged us to get here in June and we didn’t make it here till August 20th.  They said the more time you spend in Maine, the happier you will be.  Boy were they right and we only got here yesterday.  We are tied to a mooring in a beautiful harbor in Falmouth.  The marina has free launch service so we don’t even have to splash the dink which is great for me because that is my job.  And they have the nicest newest showers and bathrooms we have seen anywhere in 11 months of cruising.  My mom has been to the restaurant at the dock which is fancy and has a 180 degree view of the harbor but all of us are going to go for lunch tomorrow when my dad’s friend from high school drives here from where she lives in Maine.  After she leaves, we will make another passage – this time to Acadia National Park, the first national park east of the Mississippi River.  Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park is the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States. During certain times of the year, it is the first place in the U.S. to see sunrise.  We can’t wait!
