Camden, Maine and downeast

After a grueling rainy drive from Kennebunk to Camden and visiting a yoga buddy of Lynnae's and a nice dinner at "Fresh" in town, we settled in Camden Hills State Park for our first "real" camping night. The morning broke clear and cold and we hiked up to the top of Mount Battie for some spectacular views.

We had to make a few stops along the way to today, including shopping at the Belfast Natural Food Co-op.  I thought I had fallen asleep and woken up in Santa Cruz in 1969 ... except for the prices.  For a store whose main customers seemed to be back-to-the-land'ers and hippies, I couldn't believe how expensive it was--Whole Foods on steroids!  Well, understandable I guess because all the produce and meat seemed to come from local Maine farms (where they probably play classical music for the animals when they get slaughtered). They did a good tuna salad sandwich, though!

We had a beautiful drive along Highway 1 in "downeast" Maine and finally settled for the night about 15 miles from the Canadian border, but we've lost US cell coverage and have to watch our data usage. Tomorrow we'll cross the border and continue into New Brunswick.
