6/27/14 Friday in Bar Harbor, ME (Mt. Desert Narrows Camping Resort-RCG)
Since we only had to travel 3 miles we enjoyed our normal morning routine. Normally on a travel morning we abbreviate or skip several things we normally do in the morning. Then just as John was close to the end of his TV shows the mobile RV repair man called. He could be at our site in minutes. Wow. He was and took our front door apart to diagnose the problem. He was concerned because door workings are very complicated and if there was a broken part it could be hard to find for a 2003 rig. Within ½ hour he found the issue (a rod had slipped off), fixed it, putting our door back together and showing that it now worked. I was impressed. We happily wrote his check then asked if he could look at our camera/monitor issue. He’s really booked up but will schedule us in the late afternoon Monday.
Problem A (door) now solved. Problem B (ice maker struggling) also solved due to my defrosting/cleaning work yesterday. As for Problem C John thinks getting a new light housing may solve that one. He needs to contact Monaco.
With that wonderful experience we finished getting ready for our long 3 mile trip to Mt. Desert (pronounced like dessert) Island. This island is where the majority of Acadia National Park exists.
I followed John in the car, of course. No sense hooking the car to Miss Zanzibar! Shortly afterwards we arrived and set up. Our site is right behind our friends Lily and Ian! We can see a little of the ocean through some trees. We have full hook ups (50 amps, free) as well as our satellite TV. Not level enough to put the P/S out but that’s okay. More trees in this park than Narrows Too. They have a bus that will take us to Acadia Park. The bus stops at Narrows Too as well.
Since Lily/Ian have been here since May 10th we wanted to get tips from them about the Park so we spent the whole afternoon visiting.
We ended our day with a lovely walk around the campground at sunset.
