Sunday we decided to take a day trip to Canada. My desire was to hit Lubec, Maine, the eastern most point of the U.S., and also to see Campobello International Park, FDR’s summer home. Billy’s desire was to test out the internet in Canada with our new T-Mobile service (we already have AT&T and Verizon but they weren’t ideal for an extended stay in Canada). The kids were really curious about crossing the border.
Aaron Franklin, of PBS fame, is THE bbq king, and his famous bbq joint is in Austin. This was Billy’s #1 on places to visit for the entire trip. Billy started smoking meat after watching his show and receiving Aaron’s book from yours truly last Christmas. He may or may not keep it on his bedside table next to his bible. We had been really bummed because their pit room suffered a fire in August, and was closed until further notice. BUT… luck was on our side, and they reopened the Tuesday before Thanksgiving!!
Our good friends who have also done a good amount of road-tripping, the Ingrams, told us we just HAD to hike the Beehive Trail in Acadia. The ranger at the information desk took one glance at us and declared, “That trail isn’t for kids.” (Sometimes I wish I could turn my rebellious nature off. If you want me to do something, just tell me not to do it. It should do the trick.)
