Reporting from Freeport, ME (Latitude 43.81, Longitude -70.14)
Note: Actually at a nearby Starbucks, since our hotel had a different idea of wi-fi, in that they didn’t have any although they said they did. This is also why this is late.
With better weather than yesterday, we checked out of the Tara Inn and headed over to nearby St. Stephen for the Chocolate Museum. Ganong is a high-end Canadian chocolatier, and they set up a museum in their old factory. It was rather interesting—plus free samples.
We then found a local diner, where I had some great homemade clam chowder.
We followed that up with the day’s main event—seeing the high tide at St. Andrews.
That wrapped up our time in Canada—we jumped over to Maine (which was just as easy as it was the first time), where we were promptly attacked by a giant lobster.
I took the crustacean by the claws and turned it into a lobster roll.
A late afternoon trip down US Route 1 followed—here’s a cool bridge—
--and here’s a tourist mainstay, as referenced in John Hodgman’s Vacationland (which we were listening to during the drive), Perry’s Nut House.
More to come.
