Bob and Carolyn gave us a great driven tour of York, Wells, Ogunquit and Kennibunk and Kennibunkport! The homes, the ocean beaches(all of them freezing, used to be you couldn't keep me out of the water no matter how cold...well that ship has sailed!), the quaint towns, all lovely. We saw St. Anne's Church in Kennybunk on the water, the President's Summer Home, Cape Neddick Lighthouse, and many other sites as well
I came by my love of Lighthouses (let's not talk about Barns) honestly. Back in the late '40's into the early '60's my dad was the Pilot for a New England Author by the name of Edward Rowe Snow. He wrote mysteries of New England. Every December, my dad would fly Snow, (who would dress up as Santa, and later became known as the Flying Santa) over the manned lighthouses from Maine to New Jersey dropping little Christmas packages to the Lighthouse keepers. It became quite the tradition for the two of them. Snow would then give my dad an autographed copy of the latest book. I actually have all of those and one of these days I will get around to reading them.
Enjoy this area of Maine....next Boothbay Harbor....
