On a recent trip to Maine, my wife and I made a stop at Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. We hadn’t known about either of these attractions when we started, but rather came upon them while driving from Acadia to Camden. Since they looked intriguing, we changed our plans and stopped to check them out.
The Penobscot Narrows Bridge was unique because you could take an elevator to an observation deck at the top of the structure and see all across Maine. It was especially scenic with all the fall colors no display. Both of these attractions were quite remarkable and well worth the stop.
Fort Knox was a Revolution era fort that thwarted efforts of the British navy vessels that attempted to sail up the Penobscot River. It was interesting to learn about this fort and explore the building and grounds. I never knew something like this existed.
I’m glad we were not solely focused on getting from point A to point B, but were willing to change out plans when something interesting presented itself. The Journey was made more memorable by our willingness to change up the plan.
