Down East

We spent the day meandering up the New Hampshire and Maine coasts via Route 1. After a few stops to admire the scenery, a few wrong turns, and lunch in Yarmouth at the Muddy Rudder (a disappointment since the last time we were there), we have arrived in Southwest Harbor on the "quiet side" of Mt. Desert Island. (Bar Harbor, on the eastern side, is the largest and busiest village on the island.)

Thanks to our handy AAA tour book, we were able to call ahead and find a B&B with a vacancy and are pleased with our accommodations at the Clark Point Inn. Our host Honorio recommended the Dry Dock Cafe for dinner. It was a short walk from the B&B to the village where we relaxed and had a lovely meal. Aside from lobster, blueberries are the most ubiquitous food on the menues around here, so I had to finish off my meal with warm blueberry crisp and ice cream, which I shared with mr. lo, and even then we weren't able to finish it. Tomorrow we'll explore Acadia!
