I love to travel. My goal is to visit all 50 states before I get old and can't travel. So far, I have been to about 15 states.


Searsport Antique Mall

The Searsport Antique Mall is open all year round and 7 days a week. The mall is located in mid coast Maine between Camden and Bar Harbor on Route1. It has one of the largest group shops. They have a staff that love to help and will go the extra mile to help you. This mall is great if you just want a few pieces for your home or if you are furnishing your home. It carries items from the 18th to 20th century to art pottery to hooked rugs and much more. The items are displayed in room like settings.

In the video is where my parents and I go to eat our lunch at the docks. It is beautiful. You get to see the ocean with its ships. The wind blowing in your hair. The sound of seagulls flying through the air. The people on the docks are friendly as they tell you if they caught any fish.

Here is a list of 6 notable men of Searsport:

1. Roswell K. Colcord, the 7th Governor of Nevada, who was born in Searsport.

Perry's Nut House Belfast Maine

Perry's Nut House first opened its doors in 1927, when I.L. Perry where he sold pecans from Georgia and other nuts. Before long, Perry added curios and museum pieces that he collected on his travels in his store where eventually had to move into a bigger building. He moved his store into what was at one time a sea captain's home. At one time, he had customers like Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Waldo Pierce (a painter and friend of Ernest Hemingway), Fay Emerson (actress) and Pierre Monteux (symphony conductor and instructor). When Perry died in 1940, a nineteen year old, Joshua Treat III, became the new owner. He continued the traditions of Perry and added his own pieces that he obtained from his travels. It soon became the "must see" place in the world as it is today.

If you are visiting this beautiful sea town, you must visit this place, where you can buy Maine products, sample the delicious fudge and see the attractions. There is also a jewelry store connected to this one that you must check out. Everytime that I am visiting my family in Maine, we take a trip to Searsport and check out Perry's Nut House.

      Perry's Nut House sounds interesting and so does the Antique Mall. My grandmother lived in Georgia and owned a pecan farm. Our childhood memories include picking pecans and putting them into paper grocery bags so she could hull them and sell them.

      My husband and I traveled to Kennebunkport, Maine for a wedding. It's a beautiful area. We stayed for a couple days after the wedding and did some sightseeing. We ate seafood everywhere we went. Found a little seafood shop and met an older couple that were up from Texas. Turned out it was Barbara and George Bush, Senior. Very down to earth. Have relatives in Portland. Was fun. Looks like Northern Minnesota by Lake Superior.

      These are definitely the kind of places I love to browse. You never know what you might find in antique stores and I always take something home with me.

      The walk along the docks is another of my favorite types of outings. Thanks for sharing this look into your part of the world.
