LOCATION: Wiscasset, Maine – about 25 miles east of Portland
WEATHER: Misty, mostly overcast. Highs in 70s
CAMPGROUND: Chewonki Campground. We had had high hopes for this one. It had been recommended highly to us. It is pretty nice, but WAY overpriced at $61/night. Water and electricity (30 amp) at sites. Fire ring and picnic table. Central dump station. Some sites overlook water. Grassy sites, but not level. Lots of amenities that we probably won’t use – swimming pool, children’s playground, rec room, badminton court, tennis court. Adding salt to the wound – $25 extra for checking in early and $.25 for shower! 3 out of 5 stars.
We packed up at Blueberry Campground, wanting to leave the mud before it started raining too much. We took photos of the mysterious dent in case we need it for insurance.
Wiscasset is only about 30 miles away. After getting settled in and unhooked, we drove in to nearby Bath for lunch. Bath is an old ship-making town, with a cute, historic downtown. We had lunch in a new pub. We shared some seared tofu served with balsamic vinegar and Brussels sprouts. Different and tasty.
Maine, of course, is famous for its lobsters. We see lobsters for sale everywhere. This restaurant is near our RV park…
As we drove home, we stopped for some wild blueberries. We have been following the season as we drive north.
Back at the RV park, George was bitten by a green fly, so we decided to put up the screened tent. This is our first time using it. A good rehearsal, although we hope that we don’t have to use it much.
DINNER: Leftover pork. Individual ramekins with sautéed zucchini and onions, with croutons and cheese. I figured out the convection oven function in the microwave, and baked them. Success! Couscous on the side.
