Some Maine Sights

Our friend, Peter, lives in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and we stopped in for a visit. He showed us around Portland, Maine; some lighthouses; and some beautiful sights.

Our first stop was at Two Lights State Park at Cape Elizabeth. Here can be found what remains of one of four World War II batteries placed here to protect Portland Harbor. But not only that, it is a beautiful place.

Here are some more pictures from our day:

The next day we were on our own. We found ourselves close to Lenny, the World’s Only Lifesize Chocolate Moose located inside the Len Libby Chocolate Shop in Scarborough, Maine. Lenny was made from 1,700 pounds of milk chocolate in 1977. Naturally we had to stock up on some of their home made chocolates! Good stuff.

And then a tour of Allagash Brewing Company, a local independent Belgian-inspired beer maker.

Then a trip up to Freeport, Mine, to the LL Bean Flagship store. While we were there another Travato was in the parking lot. This is special since these campers are relatively new and are not common. We met them and have made new friends. We will see them again soon.

Another Travato!

We were allowed to park free overnight in the parking lot, it was a nice quiet stay.  It began raining in the morning and rained all the way home, back to near Keen, New Hampshire.

The last few days have been fun but could have been better. Too many tourists and crowds and traffic for our liking. The last time we were here it was in September and much quieter in certain areas. We will try to make it back this way again in the fall, after school is back in session and the tourists are fewer.

The Travato handled beautifully, no problems at all. We averaged just over 16 miles per gallon.

We are back at home for now but will be leaving in a couple of weeks to make a one month long trip to Minnesota.
