On Monday morning, we checked out of Schoodic Woods Campground and headed over to Seawall Campground in Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island for our last night in Acadia National Park. The perk of Seawall Campground is that it is a quick drive to a lot of the desirable attractions in Acadia.

I can’t remember what in particular they were studying, but they were fascinating to talk to and the boys learned all sorts of fun stuff. They also had tons of wildlife books that the boys enjoyed looking at. While on the ferry, we were fortunate to see two bald eagles and a bunch of Harbor porpoises. Read More »

We dropped the camper off at a storage facility in Freeport then headed to Read More »
