Maine Photos and Art
Maine Travel Photos Sept. 2009
These are photos from a family trip to Maine. It was my first time there and I was totally blown away by most all of the experience. We flew into Bangor, rented a van and got no more than a mile from the airport when we stopped at a place everyone but me know as THE place for clam chowder. I had never eaten chowder but in the spirit of the trip ordered up a bowl, it was great. We then headed out for our first destination, Belfast, a small town on the coast that boasts a large art community. After dropping off our stuff at the motel (which was very cool overlooking the water) we headed for town. The shops were pretty cool, the people nice and laid back and the view was breathtaking. I'll show you some shots from there. The next day we headed for the rental house located in the town of Steuben, along the way stopping for some nice views of the Penobscot, the bridge and Fort Knox, which overlooked the town of Bucksport. Yeah, I'll show you those places too. After that it was hitting the road toward Rt. 1. The house was really out of the way and not easy to find, but when we did we were all fired up and burnt out at the same time/ I'll show you the house too. The journey for the next week consisted of lots of miles and more beauty than I had seen in a long time. Mt. Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point, roadside grills fired up with lobsters, a drive up the coast to New Brunswick, Canada and Campobello Island and all the cool suff in between. This was a great trip for us and I hope these photos make you want to go to Maine and enjoy the "Way life should be". Enjoy~~
These are the first photos from the Maine trip. I'll be adding more each day, so check back to see the beauty of the great state of Maine. Hope you like them!!
