The drive up to Maine was as equally frustrating as the drive to Rhode Island: lots of traffic and few alternative routes. We did try to get off the freeway and admired some beautiful little towns but I’m really not sure it got us anywhere faster, good change of scenery though!
We left RI at 9:45am and finally arrived at our campground: Hadley’s Point near Bar Harbor, on Mount Desert Island in Maine at 7pm. It was another long day of traveling but the kids did wonderfully. Driving towards the campground as we slowly got closer to Acadia National Park was a real treat, coming across the bridge onto the island gave us some beautiful views of the setting sun over the water. This was just a little taster of what was to come.
