We are camped at Forest Ridge Campground in Ellsworth, ME which is about 15 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. One great thing about this lifestyle is seeing friends and meeting new ones. On Saturday we took a short drive to Orrington, ME which is outside of Bangor. We arrived at Rick and Barbara's place for a gourmet lunch (Menu - Asian spring roll, cole slaw, corn on the cob, chix lobster) and some catching up time.
Rick and I were in the same unit (Constant Watch PMO) back in the 1980's when we were stationed in Hawaii. He relocated back here and he and Barbara finished their careers here. It was great to be able to meet up with them again and enjoy their hospitality.
Earlier in the week, blog readers Randy and Pat, let us know they were camped near us and we got together on Sunday. We met for the first time at this beautiful church
We got together again for some hiking in Acadia National Park around Jordan's Pond. We drove over to the Visitor Center and took the free (LL Bean supported) bus to Jordan's Pond.
The trail was the busiest hiking we had done in quite a while. But with the steady stream of traffic, we were able to have a fellow hiker take our picture.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
