September 27, (Monday)

Drove through Bangor, Maine on the way to Bar Harbour which is a beautiful place, then along the coast and back inland through the Cadillac Mountains and then back to the coast to Belfast and Camden. Saw many beautiful homes and a bunch of drunks and playing-around wives in Camden, which is Payton Place. On to Rockland to spend the night and eat lobster. Doris, Lynn, and Imogene each ate 3. Jack didn't like lobster so he had a hamburger. A map of Sable Island, Nova Scotia (hanging on the wall) was discussed and explained by Lynn who happens to be the only man [in the group] that ever owned the oil and gas rights in his own name. Of course, Mobil owned him, so that took care of that. We all liked the Rocky Coast of Maine and shall certainly rememeber it a long time. Smelly Lobster Canning Factories and all.

Lynn's worked for Mobil Oil, hence the reference to being owned by them.
