Jul 11, 2020 - DayOff well spent!
Happy Saturday! I don't usually write on my days off, but just a quick note to say it was a beautiful, summer Maine beach day! Lots of heavy rain last night, but the storm we were trying to avoid obviously avoided us! The sun was shining, we walked to the Nubble Lighthouse. It was completed in 1897 and was operated by men and women until operation was turned over to the US Coast Guard in 1939, then automated in 1987. It is now in the hands of the Park Services here in York. So, interesting event today; just as we were leaving the area...Jump to full entry
Jul 10, 2020 - A "Chick" Day
Ha!Ha! Its not what you think!! Read on . . . Now where were we last night?? Oh that's right, south Portland! It was an easy start to the day this morning, sometimes its hard to think back that far at the days end! We picked up the route right out the door so we didn't have to work hard to get back on track! It got even better as the route turned into a beautiful bicycle trail! Suprising lack of mosquitoes in this tunnel of trees and wetness,which made it very pleasant! How stunning would this maple tree lined bike route be in the height...Jump to full entry
Sep 27, 2013 - Day 20
Even though the day started a bit overcast, we decided to take a day trip to Tom's old stomping grounds at York Beach, Maine. On the way, we stopped at Newick's Lobster House in Dover, New Hampshire. Tom finally got his 2 pound lobster, and I got my fried clams. He declared the lobster worth waiting for, and the clams were almost as good as the ones at the Clam Shack in Kennebunkport (which is closed this time of year -- bummer). After lunch, we headed on over to the coast to "The Yorks," as the road signs describe it. There's York, and...Jump to full entry
Aug 27, 2012 - York & Kennebunkport
This morning we were up and off to York Beach. Home of Stonewall Kitchens, the place that makes all kinds of sauces, jellies and mustard's. Pretty much you can "graze" through the company store. Got to sample all kinds of things. Some of our favorites were the Maine Blueberry Jam, Chocolate sea salt Carmel sauce (oh so yummy!) and flavored mustard's. After checking out the factory and eating our way through the store, we headed back up to Kennebunkport. Quite the little "tourist" seaport. But the BIG draw is it's the home to President...Jump to full entry
Jun 20, 2011 - York Beach, Maine
After leaving Hanscom, we headed into Maine. We stayed at the York Beach RV Park, a rustic park where we parked amongst trees. We enjoyed exploring the area. We had Lobster several times, we visited the Cape "Nubble" lighthouse, the most photographed lighthouse in Maine. We also visited the Shaker Village in New Glouchester where the last three living Shakers live (two women and one man). We also visited the "Desert of Maine" a farm that after decades of growing only potatoes, the soil was eroded by the winds exposing the fine glacial sand...Jump to full entry
Oct 14, 2010 - To see the leaves, Lighthouse and New England States...
As we drove closer to another small New England village we could smell the wood smoke floating through the air, it’s hard to believe we are already in the middle of Fall, we notice fire wood being cut and stacked as home owners are preparing for another long winter. We normally drive the interstate highways when making the move from one assignment to another, on the days that we are on a ‘excursion’ our desire is to locate a back road, we think it’s important to see a comparison of how people live in different parts of the country, it’s...Jump to full entry
