... that we'd parked under an apple tree... Brenda had to do 4 loads of laundry before we could leave Greenville, ($16 worth of quarters) but that gave us time to get a great blueberry pie at the church bazaar. Maine blueberries are the best, quite small and full of flavor. We're now about fifty miles out of Bangor and will check it out tomorrow. today's drive down here was on beautiful country roads, some being lanes at best. Just lovely country, quinticentially ...

... especially at our campground. we saw christmas decorations on some of the sites here and i at first was pretty judgemental and laughed and thought the whole thing was tacky, but than i read about christmas in july. even the camp hosts are putting up decorations! what a hoot. now, i think it's pretty fun!! we love it here and hate to leave, but we have been waiting two months to get to the coast. so, here we go!
... in their hotel room and watched the Kardashians! Ha ha Jordan! I was never allowed to watch that with Jordan.
Also, we have no TV. So it was good to watch!
The next day we were off to the Maine Black Bears ice hockey game.
UMaine is 17th in the category one sport. There are over 100 ice hockey teams in this category.
There are two ice hockey categories for university in America, so the competition is pretty fierce and Maine has a really great team. It was so fun ...
... down stairs and it was open!
Next it was Mum and I off shopping. We left Jordan looking at tattoo shops and Robbo at the library ( geek, ha ha )Mum and I looked at every single shop hoping to find something.....
All the stores were retro/vintage op shops. I did not buy anything! That was a little disappointing.
We got some lovely french cheese and some really nice cupcakes! I guess that was good.
On the way home ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsIndian Hill Motel Greenville
Dates of Stay: Monday, September 16th - 18th, 2013
Location: The Indian Hill Motel sits atop a hill just as you come into Greenville. This classic hotel has views of Moosehead Lake from every room.
Value: We paid $99.00 for a King, which was the week day, peak season rate. The most expensive room is $119 during the weekend of the International Seaplane Fly-In. I thought this was extremely reasonable.
Room: The room was a nice size with plenty of space to walk around, even with our suitcases spread out on the floor. It's sparsely decorated, but clean and comfortable. TV reception was very good. The motel advertises free WiFi, & was showing a good signal, but we could not get connected. Jessica indicated it was hit & miss in the rooms. The Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch, but I thought it was odd that there was no phone in the room. I would recommend adding some hooks to the back of the bathroom door, because there is really no place to put your toiletry bag. I would also recommend adding hair dryers to each room.
Housekeeping: We usually place the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, if we are only staying one or 2 nights. We had the sign on the door, but when we returned that afternoon, our room had been made. I guess housekeeping assumed no one was there, since no cars were in the parking lot. However, I feel that they should have respected our request. The room was clean, but the bathtub could have used a good bleaching.
Front Desk: Jessica, the owner was very warm & inviting. However, I did not like that you could not get in touch with anyone after 7:00 pm. The first night my sweetheart walked down to the office to inquire about the WiFi. The 2nd night, I needed a hair dryer, but the office was dark.
Summary: Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay & would definitely stay here again. Although we did not utilize their services, Jessica & her husband also operate Northeast Guide Service, located across the street.
