Old Orchard Beach

This is where we are now, in an RV park that has two names:  Wild Acres Resort and Virginia Park Resort.  Two resorts that merged last year.  It’s a very wooded resort/park and includes park models, RV sites, and tent sites.  We were able to stay here for half price using our Passport America membership discount, but they limit that price for one night only.  We’ll decide tomorrow if we will stay another day or not.

Old Orchard Beach is very close to where we are, so we went to have a look.  It is “Maine’s Premier Family Resort”, a community with an amusement park and the usual gift shops and restaurants, an arcade, and including “The Pier” that extends over 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean.  The Pier has shops, games, eateries, and a bar at the end of it.

The crowds are gone and many of the restaurants and the amusement park have shut down until the tourists return in the spring.  Very little traffic.  There are now only a handful of senior citizens walking around and a few families with pre-school aged children.

We walked along the beach for a while and then Peter and a friend joined us for dinner in one of the restaurants there.
