Sep 28, 2016 - Colorful Maine

I'm not going to write much. My last day of work was today. Now we will get ready to leave on Monday. Saturday is our trip to Boston to see Noah. Tomorrow we will be playing cards with the people camped next to us who love to play Hand and Foot and Mexican Train dominoes. Fall and the coloring of the leaves has definitely begun here in this part of Maine. I am posting some pictures of the leaves espesically for those who don't have much of an opportunity to see them. Until next time when we get to Myrtle Beach in November. Betsy and Rick

Sep 23, 2016 - Winding Down in Hanover, Maine

We celebrated Labor Day with another visit with friends Paul and Rochelle. We were treated to a boat ride on Sand Pond after a picnic of hamburgers, hotdogs, and great fellowship. For sure and not to be missed, we drove to Acadia National Park, cruising the shoreline and stopping at Thunder Hole. Lunch was at the Pickled Wrinkle restaurant – a pickled wrinkle is a whelk – a large snail-like mollusk, pounded thin and fried. I was going to have them – Betsy said UCK – but they were out of them. Darn it! Leaving ANP, we drove to Lamoine to...

Sep 2, 2016 - Miscellaneous Doings

Today’s our 51st wedding anniversary and we celebrated by going to Mexico to Walmart – that’s Mexico, ME Seriously, we have had a great day and topped it off with a dinner of lobster, corn on the cob, fresh carrots from the farmer’s market and for dessert chocolate zucchini cake. The local grocery store had lobsters on sale so we bought 4 (they were small) and cooked them at home for dinner. I love lobster but don’t like eating it in a restaurant – too messy. We have joined a social media group called RVillage which is like Facebook except...

Aug 7, 2016 - RV is Fixed

Hey, Y’all! Don’t come to Maine to cool off! This week has been in the low-mid 90”s and bone dry. We are desperate for some rain. I have to water the garden just about every day or the plants just wilt over. But, as long as they get water, the squash, cukes, and Swiss chard keep coming. It won’t be long until the tomatoes change from light green to red. In anticipation, I have already fried up some bacon – BLT’s are in the plans. What we don’t grow, we have been getting from the Saturday AM farmer’s market in Bethel or directly from the...

Jul 21, 2016 - Fresh From our Garden

We told you last journal that Rick was going to have a booth at the MollyOckett craft fair last Saturday. The day was absolutely beautiful, not too hot and not too cool and no rain!!!! He did fairly well and came home with twice as much money as the booth cost. The best seller was a bowl of pairs of earrings that he was selling for $1 a pair. They were a hit and his inventory was reduced by over 100 pairs of earrings. Wednesday Rick went to visit his Mom in Manchester, CT. He’ll be home tomorrow. I stayed at the campground as I work on...

Jul 10, 2016 - The 4th has come and gone

Had a wonderful weekend of June 30 to July 3rd visiting my brother and sister-in-law, John and Ginny Nutting in Wysox, PA at Lake Wesauking. Their 2 sons, Mike and Glen plus their families were also there. Our great-nephews, Tanner and Chase who are twins are growing up so fast. They turned 4 while we were there. I used to be able to somewhat tell them apart because Chase’s face was just a little rounder than Tanner’s. Now Chase’s face has thinned down some and I spent the whole time calling them by the wrong names. They are adorable...

Jun 28, 2016 - New York City and Back

Maine is certainly changeable. First it was on the cool side and now it’s been in the 80’s. A couple of weeks ago we took a ride to see some of the sights in this part of Maine. We went up to the Sunday River area and saw one of the last covered bridges in Maine. The bridge is not used anymore but it makes a beautiful picture. The day was a really beautiful day and Rick got in some rock hunting on the banks of the Sunday River. I sat on the rocks and got bit by a black fly. We decided to continue our ride and went to Rangeley – a small town...

Jun 3, 2016 - A Busy Two Weeks

Well another 2 weeks have gone by here in Maine. The weather has been hot for Maine but today it is in the mid-60’s and cloudy. May 21 we traveled to Portland (about 2 hours) to see Rick’s niece, Kaite, graduate from the University of New England. Graduation was nice but as usual very long and the bleacher seats in the arena were very close together and VERY uncomfortable. After sitting for 3 hours, we could barely get up our legs were cramping. We went back to Kaite’s house in Biddeford, right on the water, which she and her brother, Jake,...

May 19, 2016 - Trials & Tribulations Getting to Maine

We left on our journey to Maine on the morning of May 9, heading for our first stop in Falling Waters, WV. Had a very uneventful ride though it was longer than we usually drive in a day. Found the campground, no frills but an easy pull through and very easy exit out. Since we were leaving the truck hooked up to the RV, we figured we’d have to cook supper, something neither of us felt like doing. Lo and behold, while checking in, I saw a take-out menu for an Italian restaurant that delivered to the campground. We ordered subs and antipasto...

Jul 1, 2013 - Sunday & Monday - kickin' back in Hanover, ME

Yesterday, our first full day off the road, we enjoyed reading outside, dog walks and generally nice weather. Of course, there was the requisite thunderstorm late in the day that was quite entertaining, but other than that, a quiet and lazy day. Today we got a very late start thinking we'd go into the town of Bethel and see the sights as well as stop somewhere locally for lunch. Well, there's not much to see..... This should be the peak of the Northeast's very short tourist season, but with rain every day, no one seems to be around. We...

Jun 29, 2013 - Off to the state of Maine

Since the weather was supposed to be less stormy and the flooding less than expected, we figured we'd get on the road while we could. Turns out it was a very scenic trip through the northeastern part of Vermont, northern New Hampshire and into Maine. We'll stay at this campground, Stony Brook Recreation and Campground, for 3 days. Of course, as soon as we arrived, we could hear the thunder, and within an hour, had a great rain storm. Quick rain and we're back to sunny skies. Got diesel just before leaving NH (best price yet!) and stopped...

Aug 4, 2009 - Grafton Notch

The upper part of Maine is proving to be very interesting with its rivers and mountains. We continue to find trails to hike and places that take our breath away. We just returned from Grafton Notch State Park.The Appalachian Trail crosses through the park on the way to Katahdin in Baxter State Park. The final days of a thru hike must be very exhausting given the height of the mountains it travels through. Walking any of the trails in the park during the bright sunlight was like walking over sparkling crystals. The mica is interspersed...
