Onward to Maine

Saturday morning we opted to sleep in a bit, rather than our usual 4:30-5:00am departure. I was a bit cranky at first, but things got better. We had a few stops to make, the first being Freeport. In Freeport, we met up with my family. The usual stores of L.L.Bean and Cool-As-A-Moose were visited.

Side note: On the way up, I heard this poof sound, but very loud. Craig thought it was in the song, and I was suspicious. At one of the stops to fill up on gas, I noticed the front tire of my bike the rim strip was hanging out. The tube had exploded and took the rim strip with it. So while in Freeport, I also made a visit to National Bike and Ski to get rim strip.

In Freeport, we also ate at Morrison’s Maine Chowder House. I had a delicious lobster roll and cup of seafood chowder. It’s a tiny little place but great food.

Our next stop was to visit my Aunt and Uncle at their camp in the Augusta area. I hadn’t seen them in 2 years, and previously had been at their home in the Virginias. It’s been in their family for years but my parents had never made the trip up there.

I’m so glad we made the stop. We chatted, caught up and enjoyed the beautiful view from their porch. We were reminded of how much we had in common and how much nicer it would be to see each other more often. The time flew by, we had only planned to stop for an hour or so, but 3 hours later we realized we had to get going.

We departed into pouring rain and the last leg of our journey. We’ve rented a different house this year and it is everything we thought it would be and more. The internet is being supplied via satellite and is a bit spotty but the house has so many nooks and crannies and a place for everyone.

Ah… vacation.
