Historic Downtown of Bath, Maine

Justin, Willie and I piled in the car on Friday on our one shared day off together and drove north. We got as far as East Boothbay, then decided that was far enough. We took our time coming back home, driving along Route 1 for quite some time and found our way to the largest LL Bean I've ever seen in my life in Freeport. I mean, this thing was not just one store, but something like 4 or 5 stores. It is a little village!!

Anyway, we both love Maine so much and it was such a great day for a drive. One of the best things about Maine is that it really is reminiscent of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in a lot of ways, including some very bizarre kinds of little roadside shops, strange house decorations, and sheer beauty in the landscape.

The only picture I took of the three of us. Don't I look like a grumpus.

"The Way Life Should Be"...I think they're right.

I know they're speaking of goats, but the sign is still funny.

Boats in everyone's backyard.

Willie singing along to his favorite song on the radio.

Fluffiest clouds I've ever seen.

We stopped quickly in Bath, Maine on the way home. What a neat little town. Sadly I didn't take more pictures. Guess you'll just have to go explore it yourself!


  1. Hi Jenny, thanks for commenting on my blog!

    To be honest, I have been a fan of your blog for quite awhile. I first found it after you posted something to the Puma Racing Facebook page last May when the Volvo race was in town.

    Again, to be honest, you guys were part of the inspiration that led me to do this, you made it seem very doable and even fun, so thank you very much!

  2. Wow, thanks so much! I'm honored that we've been an inspiration to you.

  3. So no mention of looking at boats??

  4. Haha, sshhhh!! I don't want to stir up any false rumours. :)

  5. damn, some of the best lobster rolls are in brunswick... I forgot to mention that to you.
    for willie, of course, I say this -- his favorite!

  6. Guess we'll have to go back there for some lobster rolls sometime!
