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.
