Heading Home…


All good things must come to an end and it looks like today will be the beginning of the end for this little trip.  Still not being in too big a hurry to get home, I decided to check out the Rhode Island coast and head south from Providence down to Newport.  I continued east on 138 and then south on Scenic 1A down to Point Judith where I arrived just in time for a nice sunset at the Fishermen’s Memorial and Point Judith Lighthouse.  Continuing a bit further on Route 1, I finally called it a day and spent the night in Mystic, Connecticut.

By now I’m pretty much ready to get home, so Tuesday morning I hit I-95 and made a beeline for Virginia Beach.  As with any trip like this, the last 100 miles seem to take forever. I didn’t think I’d ever get to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel but, alas, by 6PM I was home and by 7PM all my gear unloaded putting an end to a great 7 day road trip.

There’s no doubt that a return to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park is going to be in my near future.  Although there’s something refreshing about spur-of-the-moment trips such as this, you can’t help but think that you missed something.  There’s no doubt that a second visit will be even better.
