SuEllyn's lobster roll looked fantastic. I would give it a 9 or even 10. She's got it!

Maine Red Snapper

One would think that Red Snapper refers to fish. In this case it refers to hot dogs. Lucy is still camped in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. This morning Fred the truck was displaying a "check engine' light. We checked Fred with our own OBD2 reader and found that Fred had a malfunctioning diesel glow plug in his #4 cylinder. We took Fred to Galos Chevrolet in nearby Saco, Maine. They verified the problem and took Fred in for repairs. The dealership was serving lunch today for their customers, and we were able to partake of the Red Snapper lunch. Here in Maine Red Snappers are bright red hot dogs that "snap" when you bite into them. They were a little bit spicy and very good.
Fred spent a couple of hours in the shop getting his glow plug replaced. Fred was finished at about 1:30, and they had even washed him when the work was completed. The good news was that Fred's diesel glow plugs are warranted as part of the drive train for 100,000 miles. Fred has 98,800 miles on him. Another few days and we would have been paying for this repair.

As it was going to be a short day of exploring, we decided to head down to Wells, Maine to take a look around. On the way to Wells, we came across an antique car dealer. We stopped and looked at the cars and took some pictures. We continued down to Wells and got a look at their beach.

We headed back to Lucy for an early dinner and to start breaking camp as we plan to continue north tomorrow.

Tonight's pictures include:
- Fred getting worked on the the dealer's shop.
- The famous Maine Red Snapper.
- Fred all clean and beaming when he came out of the shop.
- 1952 Nash
- 1957 Ford Convertible.
- 1952 Pontiac Station Wagon.
- 1951 Packard.
- 1959 Ramble Station Wagon.
- The Beach at Wells, Maine.
- Sunset at Lucy's campground.

Lucy Has Escaped!

If you're still near Wells, head just a bit further south on Rte 1 to Ogunquit and walk the Marginal Way and enjoy lunch at any of the great little restaurants in Perkins Cove. When you head back north on Rte 1, Congdon's Doughnuts in Wells is a MUST! Bavarian Cream is my personal favorite if you can sweet talk Carol to go "extra heavy" on the filling 😀

Great photos and report! Good timing on the warranty work, and the Red Snapper sounds interesting. Curious whether you priced out any of the cars? That VW camper in the background for instance . . . and the blue Rambler station wagon is a classic design!

Happy Trails,

Peter

Hi Peter,

No, I did not price any of the old cars. I did leave one out that I really liked and is quite rare. It is a 1960 Chevrolet Corvair Lakewood Station Wagon. Here are a couple shots of it.

Lucy packed up this morning in Old Orchard Beach and we headed up the Maine Coast. We stayed on US 1 and avoided I-95. We made our way through Portland and followed US 1 along the Maine coast through a dozen coastal towns, none of which most people ever heard of. All of these towns were quaint and well kept. They all had interesting buildings and sights. It was fairly slow going. We only covered about 150 miles today.

We arrived in Bucksport, Maine late this afternoon. We got Lucy a campsite in Orland, Maine. We got Lucy set up, and went and did a short tour of Bucksport. One of the interesting sights was Fort Knox, a granite fortress on a cliff across the Penobscot Narrows. This Fort Knox predates the one in Kentucky by 20 years. Both Forts are named in honor of General Henry Knox, Commander of Artillery under General Washington in the Revolutionary War and the first Secretary of War.

We came back to Lucy before dark and got settled in for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- B&M Baked beans Plant, Portland.
- Large Indian statue, US 1, Portland.
- Cousins River Bridge, US 1, Freeport, Maine.
- A roadside Lobster friend of SuEllyn's
- Long line at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, Maine.
- Strand Theatre, Thomaston, Maine.
- Victorian home in Camden, Maine.
- Fort Knox, Maine.
- Little Girl parked along the road in Bicksport. Fred was smitten by her wind-up key and long red eye lashes.

Lucy Has Escaped!

Love the wind-up key.

Made one for a buddy's VW original beetle that would turn slowly until he hit the brakes at a stop. Then we would jump out, wind it back up, and take off again. Guaranteed to leave someone sitting at the light, totally gobsmacked.

Our nerdy version of the 'Chinese fire drill' in the 60's.

And no, I was once young and foolish. Now I am simply no longer young. My sense of humor has not changed a whit. If I had a Smart car.....😀

Lucy is still camped at the campground near Orland. We got some Moose Tags out from the Orland Post Office, and toured around the area a bit. We then headed over to the nearby Penobscot Narrows Bridge. This bridge was built in 2006 to replace the 1931 bridge. The new bridge has an observation deck at the top of one of the towers which is 420' off of the water. We took the trip to the top to take in the views. It was really impressive. It is the highest bridge observatory in the world.

After leaving the bridge, we went and took a self guided tour of the 1844 Fort Knox which is a short distance from the bridge. The fort was built from local granite and pretty much looks like it did when it was built 170 years ago.

We then headed down to Castine, a little historic town right on the ocean. We looked around Castine for a while and visited the 1829 Dyce Head Lighthouse.

We headed back up to Lucy's campground and have settled in for the night. SuEllyn made us Lobster Rolls from claw meat that we got at a local grocery. They were the best that we've had so far.

Tonight's pictures include:
- Looking down on bridge from Observation Tower.
- Bucksport from Observation Tower.
- Bridge Tower.
- Close-up of Observation area.
- Fort Knox cannon ports.
- Cannon in Fort Knox.
- 1829 Dyce Head Lighthouse in Castine, Maine.
- 1880 house gate in Castine.
- Castine Bay.
- SuEllyn's homemade Lobster Roll.

Lucy broke camp this morning in Orland, Maine, and we headed over to Ellsworth, Maine where we stopped and got Lucy a nice campsite with 5 point hook-ups. We got Lucy set up and headed into Ellsworth where we stopped at the local Chevrolet dealer and were able to get Fred an oil change and new fuel filter. They got us out pretty quickly, and we continued over to Acadia National Park. We toured the Park for a while before heading back toward the campground.

We stopped off at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound where we picked up some freshly picked lobster meat to take back for supper. We got back to Lucy shortly before dark and chowed down on some lobster meat. We decided to forgo the lobster roll tonight and went with heated lobster meat and melted butter. It was really, really good.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Entering Acadia National Park.
- View from high road in the Park.
- Egg Rock Lighthouse in Bar Harbor,
- SuEllyn on trail to Sand Beach.
- Sand Beach in the Park.
- Little fellow that agreed to pose at Sand Beach.
- Bar Harbor.
- Four masted schooner in the Harbor.
- Lobster cooking pots in the parking lot at Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound.
- Grand Theatre in Downtown Ellworth, Maine.

How have you found the availability of campgrounds so far in Maine? It's on our bucket list to make the trip from NSB FL up to Maine one summer.

(BTW, what's a five point hookup?)
