My next stop was the capital city of Augusta, and I stopped along the way to visit the DeLorme Map Store
Upon my arrival at the Maine State House, I was surprised to discover how rural the area around the capitol seemed to be. There were certainly plenty of buildings around, but unlike many other capitols I've been to lately, it wasn't overshadowed and cramped in by dozens of massive skyscrapers. The area was very quiet and peaceful in the evening and I took the opportunity to stroll the grassy park across from the building and take a few photos while the sun was setting. After that, I stopped for a while to work on some photos on my computer before heading to a KFC to grab a bite for dinner. The KFC was closing in about fifteen minutes and the server told me that most things were sold out for the night, but if I wanted chicken strips I could have all I wanted for free. That sounded like my kind of deal, so I had dinner compliments of the Colonel tonight.
