After we leave The County, we stay near Searsport in Midcoast Maine for the night at an RV "resort" (I use quotation marks because it is not really a resort, just a campground). This allows us to plug into electric and have sewer hook-ups. Not that we need both of those for a one-night stay but it's nice to have in chilly weather so doggies can have their heated beds warming them.
The clear skies and cooler temps made for a lovely evening by the campfire.
Harborside RV Resort is in Stockton Springs but despite the name it is not on the harbor. It is a short walk to the harbor, but we didn't stay long enough to check that out.
The location is good to serve as a home base when exploring the area for multiple days. There is much to see and do in this area. Searsport, Maine - Visit Maine - Visit Maine
Homer and Little Guy are huddling together on a heated pad because it was a bit chilly.
Since we didn't have a scheduled work assignment for this day, I enjoyed coffee in bed looking out at the woods. After a relaxed morning we head to the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport.
The museum was a delight. We took a guided tour of Fowler-True-Ross house, the home of a generations of sea captains. Other buildings are self-guided; there is much to see, read, and explore. In fact, too much for us to read all of the signs, photos, etc. in the timeframe we had.
Originally there was a porch on the front of this building but in the 1960's it fell into disrepair at the time the museum acquired it; and the porch was unfortunately removed and not restored.
This is worth a visit if you are in the Midcoast Maine area. However, the museum is open Memorial Day through mid-October only. Other photos from the museum.
After our time at the museum, we head inland to Hallowell and then to Auburn. This is Belfast Maine which we pass as we travel to our next destination. No time to stop on this trip.
