After Super Bowl Sunday, it was set for a lacksadasical day driving back towards home.
While talking the night before, my wife and I decided to drive down to Acadia National Park. She had always wanted to go to the town of Bar Harbor as well.
We drove down Alt U.S. Route 1 towards the coast and Acadia.
After stopping in Bar Harbor for Lobster, we stopped back at a wood carving we saw on our way to Mount Desert Island.
Heading down US Route 1, we came across a bridge eerily similar to the one crossing the Ohio River on US22.
You can find more pics of the bridge here.
We then headed to Augusta and back on I-95 to head south.
Late in the day, we crossed back into New Hampshire and a short jaunt on the tollway to Massachusetts.
We went the length of I-95 down around Boston and took I-295 into Rhode Island.
At this point, we were both tired, and stopped at a few exits looking for a cheap hotel to get a few hours of shuteye in before continuing home.
We stopped at the "Bel-Air Motor Inn" in Johnston, RI. Honestly, one of the worst motels I've ever stayed in. Other than the one for $40 I got near Times Square, but I digress.
