We had a lovely drive off the Castine Peninsula this morning under brilliant sunny skies even though the foliage is a bit more muted and further along here.
In Bucksport we went up in the bridge observatory high above the Penobscot River for a panoramic view of the area. Afterwards we toured Fort Knox (no, not the one with the gold, that’s in Kentucky), which is a very well preserved and quite interesting.
We stopped in Camden for an ice cream cone and walkabout before continuing on to our next rest stop at Jeanne & Peter’s house in Rockland. We arrived in time to have a bit of a visit before their neighbors, MaryEllen and Steve graciously invited us to join them for a delicious and convivial dinner.
We camped in the driveway under a beautiful old willow tree, the branches of which swayed above our skylight.
Sunny and cool. Castine to Rockland, Maine. 66 miles
