Mount Megunticook

You may have noticed I’ve changed the name of the blog.  The previous name was really boring and I thought it was time for a new one.

Rain is in the forecast for tonight so we set out early this morning for a hike to Mount Megunticook, the highest mainland mountain on the Atlantic coast (elevation 1385′).  They rank their hiking trails as easy, moderate, or strenuous and the one mile long trail we hiked was designated as moderate, and should take one hour to hike it.  It took us more like 1.5 hours to do it and it wasn’t easy for us old people, but it was worth it.

The view from the top was spectacular. Too bad the leaves haven’t changed to their fall colors yet.

After returning home and resting for a bit we drove the car to the town of Camden to have a look around.  We walked down by the harbor and saw lots of different kinds of boats, lots of sailboats.  You can take a two-hour cruise on a 57-foot windjammer for $38 if you like.  It was tempting, but we knew the rain would be here soon.

Blueberry “Pop”, not soda!  How about that.  And I thought “pop” was a Minnesota thing.

Camden is another restored old town with some great local gift shops and restaurants.  After walking around for a while we arrived home just in time for the rain to begin.  It’s supposed to rain all night and get windy.  Hopefully it won’t be all that bad. We paid for one more day, so we’ll be here until Thursday morning.
