After two days of site seeing we decided to just take it easy Tuesday. We did need to do a big shopping before we settle into our work routine, and for a big shopping we decided to drive north to Ellsworth to shop at the Walmart Supercenter and the local grocery chain, Hannaford Supermarket. It is only about 18 miles up to Ellsworth, but the speed limits vary between a low of 15 mph up to 50 mph, so it takes about 30 minutes each way.
The weather guessers had indicated there was a 90% chance of rain by 1 pm, so we left for Ellsworth around 10 am so we could be home before it let loose.....as it turned out the guessers guessed wrong, but I get ahead of myself!
We had just come through Ellsworth on our way to Southwest Harbor on Saturday, so we were just retracing our steps, although it was nicer to be driving those narrow roads in a much smaller vehicle. In the Newell it seemed much longer than 18 miles to me.
We arrived at the Hannaford Supermarket before 11 am where TLE did 95% of her shopping this day. This is a large supermarket, and they have a very good selection of the most of the products for which we have a preference. We also bought a couple of deck chairs for our deck which also match our Newell color scheme......
