Not the familiar Pacific Coast Highway that we have driven up and down so frequently. This is US 1 and on Friday we spent the day driving from Portland, Maine to Fredericton, New Brunswick, mostly along this astoundingly scenic route.
Normally on an all-day drive we don’t stop for pics, but I just had to snap just a few at Bar Harbor where we had lunch, the Penobscot Narrows, and at something I think is called Frenchman’s Harbor.
We got to Calais around 5:00 PM, promptly lost an hour as we passed into the Atlantic time zone and then drove along the equally scenic farms and towns of southern New Brunswick to Fredericton.

|And then Bar Harbor|
|The Bar. Had we more time at low tide we could have walked out to the island|
|As we were warned, the town is a bit tacky, note moose and lobster (no squirrel)|
