Oct 29, 2019 - Cape Cod, Newport and Portsmouth

It had stopped raining when we left Barnstable. We drove down to Sandy Neck Beach to see the beach. It was hidden behind sand dunes. We climbed and saw a small sandy beach. But with a cold wind blowing we didn't linger. We went on on 6A winding through sleepy little towns and villages, each with its own character. Houses...cottages...were on the large size. Most were white frame...wooden...houses. There were little restaurants and gift shops increased in number as we approached Cape Cod National Seashore Park. We stopped at Salt Pond...

Aug 29, 2017 - Maine coast here we come

Heading to the Maine coast. We stayed on back roads. It was a pretty drive through rural New York, Vermont New Hampshire. We arrived at Portsmouth New Hampshire and headed north to Wells Maine. We stayed at Moody Beach Thousand Trails. It was nice to have another free night of camping our last until we get back here after our Canadian travels. It was a good place to do laundry. We left the campground to get fuel for the truck and ice cream for us. We only had to go a short distance for the fuel and the ice cream place was directly across...

Jul 8, 2016 - Another problem

Sorry no pictures from here... seems like a nice little Maine resort town. Unfortunately, we had a small disaster on our first night here. Having recently joined Thousand Trails camping, we signed up to stay at their campground in Wells. It was, however, full. We ended up in the "overflow" lot. Not bad but no hookups. We had a full tank of fresh water and empty gray and black water tanks. Feeling pretty confident we left the fresh water pump on all the time. Regrettably, at some point around 7-8 in the morning a fitting for the toilet...

Jun 7, 2016 - Last Day in Moody Beach

From Moody Beach RV Resort (TT) Wells, ME Weather forecast today was 90% rain all day. I did wake up to rain but the sun came out around 10. It stayed out all day! We didn't have anything planned so we decided to go back to Marginal Way since we only got to walk a small portion yesterday before getting on the boat. This is such a pretty 1.5 mile path. It is paved and has beautiful flowers and many benches to sit and enjoy the view. We walked and talked to people and had a delightful time. I posted a picture of a very pretty stone house on...

Jun 6, 2016 - Kennebunkport and Nubble Lighthouse

From Moody Beach RV Resort (TT) Wells, ME What a beautiful day we had today. Sunny and high of 82. We set out to explore the area. Our first stop though was a pet store to get the girls some food. It was on the way to Kennebunkport which was our next destnation. Unfortunately, George H.W. and Barbara weren't home but someone told us they were there last weekend. They have a big compound out on a cliff in the water. There is a place called Parson's Way that was donated to enjoy the scenic view. The Bush's house is directly across the...

Jun 4, 2016 - Moody Beach

From Moody Beach RV Resort (TT) Wells, Maine We left Bar Harbor yesterday morning and drove 4 hours south. Bill was happy because he was back on I-95 for awhile. The campground is off Rt. 1 so we are on familiar roads, just further north! This is a Thousand Trails campground which is nice. We have a wooded site which means no satelitte but they have cable. We got set up and took a ndrive over to the beach. Moody Beach is a private beach with huge homes and you couldn't see the ocean. There pu a couple of places where we could see the ocean,...

Jul 22, 2015 - Perkins Cove

On our last full day in Maine, we decided to have one more Lobster Roll before heading out in the AM. A Google search identified Barnacle Bill’s Restaurant in Perkins Cove. Their on-line blog indicated that it was a favorite of George and Barbara. What we found was Perkins Cove is a delightful walking area with several restaurants, shops, and a walking draw bridge. Barnacle Bill’s lobster roll was good, and the deck overlooking the cove was really nice. We left the Cove wishing we had found this area earlier. As we head out of Maine, we...

Jul 13, 2015 - Maine Coast and Southern New Hampshire

We left “Down East” Maine and headed to the Southern Maine coast. Our campground was in Wells, located in the center of several picturesque coastal villages including York, Ogunquit, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Each village was a little different and unique but busy and crowded. We first visited Kennebunkport, a great little area with shops, pubs and restaurants right at the harbor. Of course we had to head down Ocean Ave to see the Bush’s compound. What a beautiful spot – the Texas flag was flying so George and Barbara were in. This was a...

Cat Nap Inn 2015

Jun 23, 2015 - almost there

During much of today's drive there were official signs flashing on the road, warning us of severe weather sometime between 11am and 8pm. The lack of precision in this warning was not very helpful and the fact that the sky was more blue than gray, made us wonder what it was all about. Last night bad storms hit near where we live, destroying part of the campground where we used to own a site and store our vehicles. Power lines near a generating station were blown across a major highway south of our town and the expressway was closed. We...

Sep 29, 2013 - Wells, ME

Wells is an overnighter on the way to Camden, Maine. Driving from Rhode Island to Maine takes one up through Massachusetts along I-495 and I-95, a harrowing journey along a rugged road infested with MA-holes. We were talking about how different the roads are between the northeast and the rest of the country.

Sep 11, 2013 - Last Stop in Maine

Days 188 - 191 of The Big Trip On September 8, we listened to rain on and off all night and awakened to a pouring rain. It stopped for awhile and we started getting ready to depart and then it started, again. It finally stopped about 10:00am and we were able to finish. The farther south we drove, the clearer the skies became. We had a busy drive through Portland and then turned east, at Wells, to get to our campground. On September 9, the Andersons had plans to meet acquaintances in Portland. I had a cabinet full of dirty clothes. They...

Aug 20, 2013 - Moody Beach, Maine

Rebecca drove the whole way, a distance of 83 miles, for today's move. The weather has been in our favor for weeks, we hope it will continue to be nice. We haven't been to this part of the US before. We will be here for two weeks and since the end summer is our last week it should be much quieter than the last 16 weeks! While here, we expect to visit a few of the quaint seaside towns, the famed Kennebunkport and some other sights that come our way! We are excited so come along and join us. NOTE: we have posted more than 7500 photos to...
