Best feedbag in Maine! While we had some tremendous meals along our journey, the BEST lobster roll and fried clams came from this food truck parked along Route 1 somewhere in Kennebunk. Fresh and delicious!
So all the pictures and words pale in comparison – we got to see our son! Of course, in all the excitement no pictures of him! We enjoyed a couple of days here in Houghton on the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan, and traveled onto the Keweenah Peninsula up to Copper Harbor. What a stunning… Read More Houghton and the UP – Sept 2014
We decided to head to Michigan to see our son before heading back to Atlanta. On the way we camped one night at Straights State Park, just over the Mackinac Bridge. Michigan State Parks are good as long as you don’t value privacy or space from your neighbors. It seems like Michigan puts about 2-3x… Read More St. Ignace – Sept 2014
What a great time on Cape Cod (MA)!! Karen did some biking on the Rail Trail and in Nickerson SP where we stayed, and I did a lot of kayaking in the salt marshes, the ocean (you can see some of my friends) as well as fresh water ponds. While on the cape, we got to see… Read More Cape Cod – Sept 2014
You can’t say Freeport, ME without talking about LL Bean, so yes that was our first stop (after the campground). While a visit to LL Bean is like being a kid in a candy store, our campsite wasn’t too shabby. We stayed at the Winslow Park Campground, which is part of a farm that was… Read More Freeport – Sept 2014
As is common for the artisan community of Provincetown, artists regularly describe to visitors and patrons their perceived rankings. As this artisan clearly indicates, it appears he feels he is #1 on Commercial Street.
Camden offered us a great chance to catch up with friends (thanks to Ken and Helen for hosting a GREAT weekend!). While we camped at Camden Hills State Park, our friends stayed in cabins at Point Lookout (Lincolnville, ME – near Camden), a simply stunning resort (?) where instead of typical hotel rooms, you stay… Read More Camden (ME) – Sept 2014
Between the carriage trails for hiking/biking, the beauty of Mount Desert Island and the stunning Maine coastline for paddling, pristine lakes… well… this is where to be. I paddled out of Seal Cove several times during our stay (there is a quiet public boat ramp there), and it was just beautiful. The carriage trails were… Read More Acadia NP (ME) – Sept 2014
Close to the most eastern most point in Maine (and the US), we camped at Cobscook Bay State Park in Dennysville, ME. What a gorgeous campground, but make sure you come provisioned with EVERYTHING you need – there is nothing around for miles. The views are simply stunning as the campground is located right on… Read More Cobscook Bay SP (ME) – August 2014
