Where I stayed
The Inn at Blackberry Commons, 82 Elm Street, Camden, ME 04843
We checked out and drove to Camden in Maine. According to all sources, the drive should only have taken two and a half hours. However, it was a gorgeously warm and sunny day (we drove with the roof down), and what with it being a bank holiday tomorrow, it seemed that everyone had taken to the roads
We dumped our stuff and headed straight downtown (less than ten minutes’ walk away) to get food. It took a while to find a place as the first few restaurants we tried had stopped serving food between 2pm-5pm. We ended up in a pub called Cuzzys where David had decent ribs but my pork chops were sadly tasteless. We then walked along the small harbour-front and up and down the small but smart and bustling high street, and then decided to head back to the hotel so we could get in the car and drive up to Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park.
We stayed up there for an hour or so, enjoying the beautiful views over Camden and the surrounding greenery (New England: tree-y), and watching the sunset start to come in. Knackered, we decided to have an easy evening in the hotel reading and doing internet stuff (our room doesn’t have TV!).
