Hello Fellow Travelers,
I have arrived in another country called Maine, where they talk funny. Ayuh: When you hear "Aloha" you right off think of Hawaii. When you hear "Shalom" you think of Israel. When you hear a crude, vulgar expletive you look around for a Massachusetts drivah. In the same way when you hear "ayuh" you think of Down East. Although many tourists have tried, none has succeeded in pronouncing the word correctly. If you heah the word "ayah" pronounced awkwardly here in Maine, chances ah there'll be a camera-totin', Bahmudah shawts-wearin', NewYawkTimes-readin outah statah in Berkinstocks and sun glahsses in the vacin-ty.
See what I mean? Well, Maine-iacs are warm hearted, tend to observe outah statahs, and have a strong work ethic. Beautiful country, Maine, as we are happy to be here and the weather has been perfect! A little on the cool side, 55 at night and mid 70's during the day. Floridians, eat your heart out!
Two years ago we rv'd to Alaska with a tour group and made fast friends with Bill & Gale, and Al & Carolyn. As luck would have it, we were able to re-connect with them and eat some scrumptious lobster at the premier lobster restaurant in Scarborough, ME. While our lobster "cracking" were somewhat lacking, patient friends gave us some lobster 101 and it worked out wonderful. Thank goodness for lobster bibbs!
You can't come to Maine without going to Freeport the home of outlet stores as well as L.L.Bean. Wow, What an operation. We shopped the retail store and picked up some treasures we couldn't live without. Yes, I got my cap! Teddi discovered another tourist bonanza and had to go by and get a picture. Lenny, a life-size chocolate covered moose. The next time I order chocolate moose, I am going to request them to hold the antlers.
The best adventures are ones that we just happen upon. Some of the pictures are spontaneous jaw dropping descriptions. Like the giant wooden indian. We hope you enjoy.
Okay, we are off to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Stay tuned and thank you for all your kind comments!
