Maine for Memorial Day weekend (Day 3)

Our second full day in Maine we hit up a Farmer's Market which was surprisingly right next to our hostel. Bought some steaks, lettuce, smoked mozzarella, raw milk, and salad dressing for real grilling on the BBQ for dinner.

The man at the lettuce stand told us about the fjord at Acadia. It's the only fjord in the US along the Atlantic Ocean. I got so pumped! Most don't know that I have a slight fjord obsession. I'm dying to go to Norway to check out the famous fjords.

Ever had raw milk? Nope? Me either. It was like sucking straight from the teat of the cow. We had a pretty yummy lunch of raw milk, grilled turkey and smoked mozzarella (from the farmer's market) cheese sandwiches. Happy and full, we were off to hike up to the fjord.

The hike up was more difficult of the hike we did the previous day. A great hike nonetheless and well worth it!

We made it. Time to sit back and relax!

The hike down.

Real grilling on the bbq. Steaks and hot dogs wrapped in bacon.

T-bone steak, hot dogs wrapped in bacon, corn on the cob, and the most amazing salad ever. We made it with lettuce from the farmer's market, grilled onions, grilled corn, and parmesan vinaigrette dressing from the farmer's market. We invited a fellow traveler and Jeff the hostel manager to join us since we had so much food.

This was a great day. One of those classic days full of seeing things you've never seen before, hanging out in a chilled out hostel, and having great conversation with fellow travelers in the hostel. Good times.
