Captain Briggs B & B on Maple Ave. in Freeport, Maine is hosted by Bev Tefer. We enjoyed our stay here in the Forget-Me-Not room. It was an adequate Queen bed with TV and attached ensuite. The only issue with this room is that one side of the bed was under the eave of the house and you had to remember to duck if you got up at night. Needless to say I slept on the eave-side of the bed, since I have a height restriction! There is Wifi and AC. One handy advantage of this Inn is that there was a fridge in the dining area where guests could store food - great for us since we had a cooler and needed to store food and re-freeze the ice packs. The Inn is charming and we were provided a great breakfast of French Toast and an apple cinnamon thingy appetizer. Coffee and tea were available at all times. Bev was also great with directions and helpful shopping hints. We were the king and queen of the inn as we were the only ones staying that night...we felt honored!

... are just a smear of objects going by. The things I would have liked a picture of are the trees/bushes along the road with cone shaped blooms coming out of the top, I believe they are called Sumac. The other thing is the sloughs covered in lily pads, blooming in pinks and whites. We got stuck in a traffic jam on the interstate in Massachusetts! An hour and a half ...
... This trip across the country would not have been as awesome as it was without you.
Mostly I would like to thank my amazing husband, Phil. Thank you for hauling my butt across the country on your motorcycle and challenging me to do things I think I can't do. I had a fantastic trip and hope we continue to have adventures like these together.

We visited the Portland Observatory, learning that it has nothing to do with stars and everything to do with early maritime commerce. Built on Munjoy Hill in 1807 by an early entrepreneur, the Observatory was used to track the port's shipping activity. The tour offered historic background and a 360-degree view of Portland and Casco Bay.
And then, it was our last full day in Portland. Sigh. . .
But we ...
... they will look up your ancestors to see if they arrived on a boat at Pier 21 and the database provides the details of their crossing including what they brought. We took advantage of doing some research on our family history while we were there and plan to follow up on. You can do your family too by sending an online request. We drove to Moncton and parked at the accommodating Moncton Casino ...
