More Maine trip!

A grey morning made for some more state park hiking.  Crystal clear water of the Casco Bay.

Quaint little towns across the bay.  Lots of empty mooring balls - I'm sure it's filled during the summer months.

Next we made a pit-stop at the huge LLBean complex in Portland.  This was just one of many of the different themed LLBean stores covering what appeared to be an entire city block!

Lindy with her prizes!

I had read somewhere that they had live fish in the store - and sure enough - this fresh water aquarium held many HUGE trout.  Beautiful fish!

Driving south from Portland, beautiful leaves!

Further south to Two Lights State Park...lovely shoreline.

It was chilly and breezy!!

One of the "Two Lights"....the other was similar and actually hidden in some trees and houses....strange.  Maybe that's why they needed another light!

On that chilly, blustery day, someone was having a "sprite-ly" sail close to the rocky shoreline!  Note that the sails bear the "Poland Spring" insignia - which is a brand of bottled water you may recognize.

Right on the shoreline, there was a little restaurant overlooking the ocean.  We were hungry and thought it seemed like a good place - you win some, you lose some.  This one was a loser....lobster stew was watery and the haddock sandwich was bland.  Cool setting though!

They did have cool old tools chained to the ceiling....Duane spied this "angle hand brace drill" that he said he'd like to have since it would come in handy in certain situations.....all for today!
