We arrived here in Bar Harbor last Friday and begin settling in. We had left the fifth wheel here last fall and it did pretty well over the winter except.... for the mice. There was absolutely no food left in this rig that the mice would find appealing. So why then did the little critters have a convention here? I had washed and bagged plates, silverware, utensils, EVERYTHING and yet... they chewed through the bags to check things out. I spent the first two days vacuuming and scrubbing everything. We set traps and the first night I did not sleep well because I was listening for the pitter patter of their little feet. We have not seen or heard or caught anything so I am thinking that they are long gone. We will keep the trap set for now.
Here is the view from our campsite. It won't last long because a month from now the campground will be full and our ocean view will be a great memory.
Last year my friend Adria came up with this great idea for the kids at the campground. We hide decorated rocks around the campground. The kids find them and bring them in for a free ice pop. She isn't here this year so I painted some rocks to get us ready. Two dozen should get us started this season.
They aren't as sweet as the ones Adria painted last year but they will do the trick.
Here's a view of Bar Harbor from Acadia National Park. WE drove through the park on Sunday afternoon. The snow is pretty much gone and things are not yet greening up but spring is definitely on the way.
