Comments: Appalachian Trail, Canoe Ferry across the Kennebec River

The pancake breakfast was every bit of good as everyone hoped! 12 Patriotic pancakes, eggs and saugage. Julie and I were only ones that stayed in a cabin. Tim feeds up to 9 thru hikers promptly at 7 and we need leave by 7:30. Coffee, and chairs and a table. It was heaven. We were the first to hit the trail and three people pasted us. When we reached the river we saw the first canoe crossing of the day just reaching the other shore. We sat in the sun and talked about the lovely cedar trees we had passed by on the way. When it was our turn there were two thru hikers waiing and we asked them if they'd like to go ahead of us because we were in no hurry. We made them very happy. Still some clouds up high so we couldn't see the tip tops of the Bigelows from the Sugarloaf ski area base. We got great deli sandwiches at D'ellis at the ski area base. Fun times on the AT. Wish I was still on the trail.
