We woke up at 4:00 am, it was still completely dark outside and nobody else was moving around at all. We packed up quickly and walked the dogs hoping to have time for a shower at the bath house across the street from the park. (The campground did not have showers.)
After sleeping on the ground for a few nights I had a cramp in my left lower back that felt like someone was shoving a knife into me. Stretching helped a little but Advil and a heat wrap would have to do because we had to be in Augusta, Maine by 8:00 am.
We pulled out of the campground just as the sun was coming up. The sunrise was beautiful, I’m sure it would be worth a return trip to see it from Thunder Hole in the future.
We pulled into the showers and were prepared to spend 15 min getting showered before our drive. There was a girl there cleaning and she asked us to come back in 15 min., so much for “Open 24 Hours”. We didn’t have time to wait, we would have to show up to the glass shop dirty.
There weren’t many people on the road as we headed out of Bar Harbor. The few that were, were traveling in the other direction and had crab traps tied to their cars. With about an hour left in our 3 hour drive we found a Dunkin’ Doughnuts and pulled in for some caffeine and sugar.
Incase you haven’t discovered yet, Dunkin’ Doughnuts serves hot breakfast sandwiches and they are really good. I went for a ham, egg & cheese sandwich and a large coffee. Sandra picked a few unusual flavored doughnuts and we were off again. The doughnuts turned out to be a little too odd on the flavors but the only one we couldn’t finish was the berry crunch.
