Vacation photos - Maine aka. "Vacationland"

'twas a dark and stormy night... Sounds like the beginning of a horror story, but no, it also encapsulates our camping experience in Maine.  Thankfully, there were two good breakfasts to be had.  After a soggy night in Acadia National Park, the sky cleared and we walked to the sea...

...and had breakfast in Southwest Harbor.  Considering our dinner the night before consisted of chips, beer, and two campfire hotdogs whilst sitting in the car, we were ready for a good meal.  As you can tell by my hunger, the photographs were taken mid-meal.

The rest of the day was lovely - we drove to Camden, and had some home-style lemonade by the harbor, then made our way to our stay for the night, a farmhouse outside of Rockland.  It was the highlight of the trip by far.  We got along well with the hosts, sharing many a conversation.  The next morning, we had breakfast on the patio.  Eggs from the chickens running wild in the garden and a smoothie with local berries, right on!

Unfortunately, the weather for the next couple days predicted 100% heavy thunderstorms and we were meant to be camping on the beach.  Thus, we thought it best to take a visit to Portland, and head home (through the White Mountain National Forest nonetheless!).
