Falling asleep early last night lead to waking up early and getting a bit of an earlier start despite having to do the laundry this morning. I set out for Maine with the intention of getting to Bar Harbor and staying there for the night.
On the drive, I took a picture of another mileage milestone in the Tesla
While charging, I looked for points of interest. The SuperCharger in Augusta was located just off of Stephen King Drive. So, I looked to see where Stephen King lives. Turns out to be in Bangor, which is the next SuperCharger.
When I arrived in Bangor, I ate at Ruby Tuesday and then looked up Stephen King’s house. Turns out he gets a bunch of people taking pictures regularly of the gates and the house. I became another one.
Based on what I read, King doesn’t like people to stop and linger, so I kept it to a drive-by picture.
The road to Bar Harbor was slow going. I arrived after dark. Hotels are more expensive here as it’s a big tourist place. I found a decent price on the Quimby House Inn & Spa. It’s a nice place and I’m enjoying my evening here. I settled in and then walked around the area. Dinner was Thai food and I had a beer at the Thirsty Whale. The crowd was mostly couples that were engrossed in their own conversations so no opportunity to chat with locals tonight. I’m planning to sight-see in the morning and get some daylight pictures before leaving.
