I’m back in Ohio but I wanted to post some highlights of my return since Bar Harbor, Maine.
From Bar Harbor I took Route 1 all the way down to Kennebunkport, ME. Before I reached Kennebunkport, I stayed overnight on Hermit Island right on the water.
I was eaten by mosquitos and had to be careful of all the poison ivy around, but the location was beautiful. My campsite had a view of the water from three sides.
After a wonderful night’s sleep, I woke up to the sound of fog horns in the distance.
Once I climbed out of my tent, I saw why. The campground and bay were layered with the type of fog you might see in a spooky movie. It was quite eerie.
That morning I left Hermit Island and continued down Rt. 1 to Kennebunkport, Maine and had lunch with George Bush Sr. and we chatted about his crazy son, the president. Well…I guess I actually didn’t do that but I did ride by the Bush Sr. estate.
Kennebunkport itself is quite a nice town. A little smaller than I thought it was but very in character for what you expect of a northeast coastal community.
After Kennebunkport, I made my way to the interstate then back down to my friend Eric Lipsitt. I wasn’t planning on riding back this way but I needed a part from my motorcycle so a friend overnighted it to his place.
That night at Eric’s I got drafted into a softball game he was having. I would love to say I came in as a “ringer” but I don’t have those skills anymore. Some would debate I never had those skills. Well luckily I didn’t embarrass myself and held my own. Eric and I reminisced about when we played little league together as kids. We also remembered that we moved alot better back then.
