New Hampshire - Maine

Our drive across New Hampshire was a short one – over almost before it began it seemed.  But that was because we crossed in the northern section.   It was a lovely drive, though and we knew the road was taking us toward the ocean:

Mid afternoon, we arrived near Freeport, Maine – and met up with our friends again.  Freeport is the site of the flagship stores for LL Bean, and a major destination for M.  On our way across Maine, we passed through Greenwood, which boasted it was the ‘birthplace of LL Bean’ – small enough that we dared not blink in case we missed it LOL!  But good things do come from small places, obviously.  The LL Bean village was impressive with 3 huge buildings dedicated to clothing and outfitting outdoor enthusiasts of every kind, as well as making sure all could make home décor suit their style:665.LL Bean Freeport, ME

From Freeport, we traveled up the coastline, enjoying the sites of the many small towns, and the ocean views:679688

And, of course, what is a visit to Maine without a lobster dinner?701.Maine Lobster

We took them right out of the tank, and into the pot.   Delicious!  And a lesson in how to eat lobster without all the proper tools – and bibs!

We were in the most north-eastern corner of continental US – back to Canada next day!

US – we’ve thoroughly enjoyed visiting and seeing your sites and learning about your people, your history, your cultures, your food.  Thanks for a wonderful three weeks!

Blessings, Peg

  1. Three weeks already!? Wow. Well, I've thoroughly enjoyed this vacation. Now that we're back in Canada... Did you ever get anyone to figure out how to set up Skype for the wedding? Eight days and counting!
