Don & Sandi at "home", back in the Stockton area.

We made it to Portland...Portland, Maine!   Of course, this is as far eastward as we will travel unless we go sailing.

Maine is pretty much like we imagined...beautiful and serene....the homes, the scenery, the atmosphere.  We took a drive down to the shore today at Wolfe's Neck State Park on the Casco Bay (about 15 miles north of Portland).  We then had lunch at a seaside restaurant where a lot of the locals go.  I had a lobster roll and it was muy bueno!

We are actually camping in Freeport (just north of Portland).   Freeport is the home of  L.L. Bean and there are over 130 different outlet-type stores along the Main(e) Street. The  LL Bean store is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  I guess the local Maine-ians love those products.  It was fun to walk through the downtown area and (mostly) window-shop.

We will relax around the campground on Friday and then head for Boston for a few days of site-seeing.

Take care.
Don & Sandi
