GRAND ADVENTURE - Day 10 - June 29, 2009
Went to Acadia
National Park, Maine where pretty much every bird Margot saw were life birds but
since she isnít a birder yet she didnít seem impressed with my two lifers;
Common Eider and Black Guillemot. Bar Harbor was a nice little town where we
enjoyed breakfast and then went back to exploring the park.
The day stayed
relatively dreary with fog and drizzle but the sun did break through on
occasion. Margot went to sleep in the back of the truck as I explored Cadillac
Mountain and the rest of Acadia. After exploring the lighthouse where Margot
awoke (she loves lighthouses!) we left the park to continue the adventure
heading south for the first time.
I drove for a
bit then Margot took back over. She drove through New Hampshire and
Massachusetts, where I apparently dozed through most of Boston. We ended up in
Watch Hill Rhode Island where I took back over the driving. Margot spent many
summers at a friends house in Watch Hill. I never knew about her adventures
there and was thrilled to learn of her life there. We then headed on to
Stamford, Connecticut where we took a motel for the night.
