This is a picture of my husband Bob standing before their fleet of trucks (the business was sold just before they built this museum).
The directions were a bit iffy, we saw the place but turned the wrong way. We backtracked it and had a good tour. The grounds were well-kept and nice.
Inside, two volunteer veterans, old enough to require wheelchairs, offered useful details about the museum, the Cole family, and the Cole family business.
Afterwards, we drove to Bar Harbor, only 60 miles away and checked in at the Bluenose Inn, Bar Harbor, early check in had been requested in advance.
We were pretty hungry by this time and headed straight downtown to get lunch but quickly decided we’d never find a parking spot (our maid had recommended Geddy’s Tavern). Disappointed, we returned to the hotel and received another suggestion from a manager at the Bluenose Inn. Off we went to Mainely Meat for a pulled pork sandwich, fries, beer, and a cherry vanilla ice cream at Udder Heaven.
It was still light out and the waitress recommended that we go to Cadillac Mountain for a good sunset picture, so we decided to take the loop road at Acadia National Park (since it says it only takes 3.5 hours which is a pretty accurate estimate.

We had a nice brief walk at the native plant gardens.
We picture opp’ed our way around the island and up to Cadillac Mountain.
On our return to our room, we decided to make use of the swimming pool for a good hour swim.
