Return to Maine Day Seven

Laura and I should be hiking an easy 10 miles from Katahdin Stream Campground back to Abol Bridge. We left that small bit last year when Laura broke her wrist. We actually thought we could hike the day after summitting Mt Katahdin? I can barely hobble down to breakfast in the hotel! Gary is considering using his hiking poles in the hallway!
There has been a stretch of three beautiful days and several hikers are staying in the hotel and recounting their hikes up and down the mountain. We all compare notes and congratulate each other on surviving. And Tim and Laura and Gary and I decide to drive home today. Those 10 miles will just have to wait for another year.
On the drive home we stop in Kennebunkport for lobster macaroni and cheese.
And we order the lobster special of the day, some amazing concoction of shrimp in garlic butter sauce in a split lobster. Fantastic! Sure would be nice to have a glass of champaign to toast a successful hike but that will have to wait until we get home. Home is sounding pretty good to me.
