Is it bad luck?

We walked yesterday from Carmel to Herman where we were treated with much kindness We were allowed to park in the church lot. A woman who we met on the road took the time to arrange for a room tonight at the Best Western on the outskirts of Bangor and this morning we were on the road there when a gentleman who lives in the city let us know that the hotel is more than five miles from the turn in the wrong direction to Acadia and Bangor, he offered his help by keeping the World safe in town and shuttling us to the van so we could have our first nights sleep in a room since the beginning of our journey. Everything worked out. I have checked in after walking into Bangor. The helpful man had uus stop for a photo in front of his old teachers home; Steven King. Just as we stopped a friendly black cat walked across the road behind me. Is it bad luck if Nice (the dog) almost eats Steven Kings' cat?

I saw you on Union St, in Bangor, as I was heading home. After dropping of my stuff, I headed back to where I saw you. You were gone by the time I got there. Wishing you the best of luck for the rest of your journey.

I am the school teacher who gave you a ride in Newport. I am enjoying the pictures and your updates. I am glad that the weather has been nice. Keep up the great work!
