Early day, third in a row, another longish drive to Lowell. Breakfast with Leslie, Zeke, Steve, Bonnie and the two students from Bar Harbor. After breakfast we pack up, load out, on the road. Back out SR 199 to 15 to Bucksport, Rte 1 across the Penobscot River, we pass Fort Knox, not that Fort Knox, south to Belfast to Rte 3. Up and over the hills to Augusta where we rejoin I95, south to Portland ME, to Portsmouth NH, to Massachusetts. I495 over to Lowell and we’re home! Well, I’m home …
