We made it!
Time to settle in for 3 nights, eat blueberries and lobster (pronounced lob-stah), and visit Acadia National Park.
Oh, the beauty of it all.
We spent our first night in Bar Harbor KOA.  Spent the next day on water and land exploring and viewing Maine.  A ferry ride in Bar Harbor gave us an unobstructed view of the rocky coastline and gorgeous mansions from the water.  Exploring Acadia's coastline and Sand Beach on foot gave us a hands on adventure of the park.  Drove over to Searsport to camp for the night after a roadside pullover for a sunset photo, grocery shopping, and coffee in Bucksport.  Dunkin Donuts is the preferred coffee shop in Maine.  They are everywhere.

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
