We have been traveling the past week. Decided to drive to Halifax, NS via VT, NH, and Maine. We decided that many people miss out on the colors of Spring with the different trees leafing. The coast line of Maine was special. We stopped in Kennebunkport for lunch and picked out our fictious house on the sound! If only....
We stopped in Freeport at the LL Bean place and did a little shopping. Was surprised that they are open 24 hrs. We had lunch in Belfast down on the wharf where they unload the lobster boats and separate the sizes. Then ship them off to various places. In the corner, they have a lunch counter and you order a dinner, they steam it , and you eat out on the deck. We were the only ones there so the guys gave us a special tour and lecture. It doesn't get busy until Memorial weekend. Some of the resorts were still closed, but nice for us to cruise on through. We spent the day and night in Bar Harbor. Cadillac Mt. in Acadia is the highest peak on the East coast. Luckily, it was not foggy. We were going to stop and see Irene, but had to take off late at night to fill in for a guest speaker that got sick. Didn't think she wanted visitors at midnight!
Halifax was wonderful...lots of history and nicest people ever. We had a great time shopping and going to local hangouts.
