I think that Maine is my new favorite state!! We’ve heard so many amazing stories about the Bar Harbor area so that’s where we wanted to visit. The only time we had been to Maine before was when we spent two days in the southern part of Maine a couple of years ago as part of a quick fall foliage trip with Jeff’s parents before we started our RV travels. We are so thankful for that trip and time with his parents. Little did we know that our time with his mom was going to be short. Spending time with family and friends is something that has become a focus of the RV life. God has blessed us with jobs that allow us to be mobile, and we love catching up with so many people along the way. I don’t talk about very many of them here in this public forum, but please know if we’re ever in your area, reach out to us. We’d love to meet up with you!
When we attended the RVE Summit in TX last February, we met lots of other full-time RVers and love keeping track of each other and figuring out how to meet up with we are nearby. That was why we chose to spend a couple of days at the Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Hermon, ME. Our friends Shawn & Andrea of 40FootHouse. We were able to have dinner with them and make new friends too!
We spent the week of the 4th of July at the Narrows Too Camping Resort. While we didn’t have a water-front site, there were several that had some beautiful views of Mount Desert Island and the Acadia National Park.
We spent one day enjoying the free shuttle around the park and some hiking along the water. Even though it was foggy, it was still beautiful. Jeff and I have finally found a place that we both love – with mountains and beach in the same place!

Bar Harbor has all the atmosphere of small-town America on July 4th. The morning started off with a parade down main-street, lunch, a nap on a blanket in the city park, dinner at a local restaurant, and then fireworks off the pier. It was a memorable and amazing day!
We were also blessed to be able to spend another evening with a friend of ours who is living in Bar Harbor that we haven’t seen in a long time. This is truly one of the BEST parts of traveling. We enjoyed a lobster dinner, playing board games, and eating ice cream. Look at the size of HALF of my ice cream sandwich!!
