Not wanting to leave Bar Harbor for the long trip west, we got up early and went into town for a morning walk along the waterfront enjoying the flowers, coastline and luxurious hotels. Next, we drove through Acadia National Park, taking in a few sights. The long haul from northern Maine to Rochester, New York was accompanied by reading chapters of Anne of Green Gables to each other. The northeast United States likes its toll roads. We chose Rochester for its proximity to the following day’s adventure and checked into a rather crummy, ‘Quality Inn’. We stumbled across an excellent river walk by the University of Rochester. It had been 20 years since we had seen fire flies and we enjoyed the warm evening walk after the 12 hours of driving. We ate at an Applebee’s for a late dinner.
