Jun 11, 2016 - Maine

On our route out of Vermont, we continued to enjoy the green mountains. Under sunny skies, the the green of the forests really popped - we enjoyed this kind of scenery all over southern Vermont. Today our destination is Wells Beach, ME, south of Portland and in the Kennebunk & Kennebunkport area. Our drive was very slow on state roads and averaged less than 45 mph with lots of 25 & 35 mph speed limits. We celebrated our arrival in Maine with lobster dinner for Anne and clams and oysters for me. Our plan for today is to explore the coast,...

Jun 25, 2012 - Traveling in the rain

We spent all day driving in the rain. Finally reached the park in Maine around 2:00PM. The skies have now cleared. We are here for 2 days. Larry wants to visit the Portsmouth Naval Museum tomorrow. The little town of Wells is adorable. I just might spend the day walking through the little shops tomorrow

Jun 15, 2012 - Our Journey Begins

And so at 6:57 am on Friday, June 15, 2012, on our 21st Anniversary, amid thoughts of "what the heck are we doing?" we set out on our Great American Adventure. We have no expectations on how far we plan to go or how long we plan to drive - all we know is we have reservations at the Red Feather Inn just outside of Grand Canyon National Park on June 19th. So, our first stop......Wells Beach? Really? Cruising through South Portland Jeff came up with the brilliant idea (honestly there is no sarcasm in that statement I thought it was...

Sep 22, 2009 - End Of Summer Walk In Ogunquit

We celebrated the end of summer today with a pleasant walk on the Marginal Way Walkway in Ogunquit, a shoreline walk from downtown to Perkins Cove. This has been the most memorable summer for us, not just because of the great places we have visited, but the outstanding weather we experience. From the beginning of summer in Pennsylvania until today we had only one day where the temperature excessed 90 degrees, in Bangor in mid August. We are looking forward to the trip south following fall foliage as we did coming north following spring. The...

Sep 19, 2009 - Kennebunkport

As we travel around southern Maine it is apparent fall has begun. With evening temps in the 40's and shortened days the leaves are starting to change color, and we have seen the first flock of geese flying south in formation. Our stop today was Kennebunkport, an afluant enclave along the Kennebunk river and the coast between Portland, ME and Portsmouth, NH. The center of downtown is Dock Square a collections of upscale shops and restaurants. We walked the area stopped at a local coffee shop and had coffee to warm up since it was cool and...

Sep 18, 2009 - York Beach, Ogunquit & Cape Neddick

Today we walked around the little shops of Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. It is a collection of small retail shops, restaurants, and jewelry stores on the eastern end of Perkins Cove, a small cove with a few lobster boats. This is also the southern terminus of the Marginal Way Walk, an ocean walk around Ogunquit. A little further south is York Beach and Cape Neddick with the Cape Neddick Lighthouse. Along the drive are beautiful seaside homes overlooking the jagged coast. The Cape Neddick Lighthouse sits on a rock island a few feet off the...

Jul 20, 2009 - Where's Waldo

This morning, we were greeted with another clear, sunny day so we decided we had better get our beach walk in before it got too hot. We caught the trolley once again and found ourselves in the midst of French speaking Canadians. I would bet that 80% of the people here are from Quebec. And might I add, Americans are some of the friendliest and most polite people we have met. -- We got to the beach and what a surprise - there was no beach today. The high tide was in and the water was all the way up to the steps. But that did not defray the...

Jul 19, 2009 - Still Punky

We both continue to feel a little under the weather today so we took a day off from walking the beach. You know it's pretty bad when we don't feel like going to the beach. Neither of us is really sick - we aren't running a fever - we just don't feel well. Like John says, the only way we can tell if we are really sick, is when we don't eat - and that's not very often. Luckily, we both are actually pretty healthy and are rarely sick. What we have now is more of an off-kilter feeling, kind of achey, kind of headachey, kind of blah. -- Because...

Jul 18, 2009 - A Punky Day

Today seems to be one of those days where we are both feeling punky, for a better word. We both have kind of a scratchy throat, not too energetic, kind of achey - just punky. -- After reading the paper and having breakfast, we caught the trolley to the beach for our daily walk. We headed out with full intentions of walking all the way to the jetty but about two-thirds of the way, I called it quits and we turned around. That's when we found out that neither of us was feeling especially perky. -- For being Saturday, there were not a lot of...

Jul 17, 2009 - By Jove - We've Found It!!

Late last night or early this morning, the humidity finally caught up with us. The air was HEAVY! The humidity really does a number on my bones and joints and I wasn't sure I would really be able to get out of bed. But, the call of the beach is strong and the worst humid day on the beach is better than . . . well, you know the drill. -- We caught the trolley once again down to Wells Beach. What a difference it was from the other day. Had we been in California, it would have been a cold miserable foggy day at the beach, but here in Maine,...

Jun 15, 2009 - Wells Beach, ME

We are currently in a campgrounds in Wells Beach, Maine. We have been dealing with electrical problems with Tortuga. The converter in the coach died, so we were using an extension cord to get electricity into the coach to run the Cpap machines at night. This felt a bit dangerous since there was so safety against shock if the cord got wet or shorted out. Also the inverter we use to run the Cpap machines from the extra marine battery died. Thus we are in repair mode. The converter has been replaced. The inverter is another story. Because the...
