Final Day: Saying Goodbye to Maine

I spent much of this last week sorting and editing photos from our trip and preparing posts for this blog. I used to create photo albums and written journals of trips, but now I use my blog to create and store my albums on the cloud. 
This is the last post of the trip. I am doubling up today because we are expecting a storm that is likely to cut off our power, so for those of you dedicated souls who have been following along, after this post scroll down to the next one which is also new.
For those of you who have persisted in following this "photo dump", thank you. I was happy to take you along.
And then it was Saturday, Oct. 8th. By now we were about 150 miles north of Boston, where we were to fly out at 6:45 that evening. 
It was foggy that morning, the first fog we had encountered since that first wet weekend at the start of our trip. 
After breakfast at the inn, we checked out and paid a visit to the nearby Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse.

 The breakwater is obviously a popular place for a morning walk, with lots of people coming and going.  But it is long and we did not take the time to get all the way out to the fog obscured light house. 

It was time to set off inland toward Augusta, where we would pick up the I-95 freeway back to Boston. 

The sky cleared and we were treated to more wonderful Maine autumn color. 

We arrived in Augusta with plenty of time to walk around the capitol and spend a little time on the river walk on the banks of the Kennebeck River. 

Because we allowed ourselves plenty of time, we didn't get stressed when we were slowed down in traffic getting back to Boston and the airport. We were air bound on time and back in Seattle and at home to hug our kitty by 11:00 Saturday night. 

It was a wonderful trip!
