Before we leave Flagg’s we meet two children, their father and their grandmother, Chris. Chris reminds me of my Aunt Mary and we become instant friends. She is another reason for us to go back to Flagg’s when we leave Acadia. I would love to hang out with her!
We drive north in Maine through Bangor then south towards Southwest Harbor, the closest city to our campsite in Seawall Campground in Acadia National Park. We pull into the campground to register our arrival and I purchase my Senior National Park Pass for only $10. Good things come with age! But I also discover that I should have purchased this sooner because we could have saved 50% on our campsite. Who knew? This is our learning curve to our RV adventures. We have no electricity here and campers are asked to run their generators sparingly between 8 AM and 7 PM. Potable water and a dump station is nearby as are spotless restrooms. No showers or laundry facilities though. It is comfortably cool and sleeping with the windows open in the park among the fragrant pine trees is heavenly!
