Southern Maine...check

WOW!  What a whirlwind 24 hours of the 'hot spots' a little further down the coast in Maine.

By 12 noon Wednesday we were checked into and all set up at the Freeport Village RV Park in Freeport, Maine.  For those of you who are not L.L. Bean aficionados, this is their home office and location of their signature stores.  Yes - that is stores - plural.  There is a 'Retail', 'Fishing & Hunting', 'Ski, Bike & Kayak' and  'Home' store.  Then there are all the usual 'outlet' stores within the same two block radius.  So - we were shopping by 1PM;-)

As soon as we had done as much damage there as we could, we were off to Portland - AND AN APPLE STORE.  (Gary had been the whole month of September without a phone!!  A VERY long story with MANY hours on the phone and in Verizon stores with NO results that led to a useful phone.  We even 'hit' the Apple store in Halifax just so G could see, touch and hold the new iPhones.) After about an hour in the store - and a VERY helpful Manager - G had his new phone.  WHAT A HAPPY CAMPER - FINALLY;-)!!!

After 5 weeks without a working cell phone...a happy camper

Now Old Port of Portland was calling with a wonderful little Italian Osteria for dinner with all home made pasta.

Next morning was up and at 'em early as it was a travel day.  But, first we needed to make a little side trip to Kennebunkport - breakfast and a little jaunt around Ocean Ave. to see the Bush quarters on Walker Point. 

The Bush compound in Kennebunkport, Maine sits on Walker Point.

A closer view.
It was now 12 noon on Thursday and our allotted 24 hours in southern Maine were up.

Off and running to - - - - Woodstock?????

Elizabeth & Gary on their way back to the 60's;-)
