  1. Boothbay and then up the Damariscotta River


    Since we really hadnít had a chance to see Boothbay we decided to stay another night at the yacht club and spend Monday walking around the bay to town and seeing what there was to see. Mostly a tourist town full of trinket shops and ice cream shops it was still a beautiful walk through old homes and businesses, across a footbridge and back to find the palm ball bowling alley we had heard so much about shut ...
  2. Bath to Boothbay Harbor and The Back Door


    Friday morning, after sleeping late and taking our time over coffee, we returned to shore.

Well someone was coming to look ...
  5. New England Part 4


    Showered and tanked up we waved goodbye to New Hampshire and entered the last state of our trip, the final outpost of America on the Eastern Seaboard, Maine and the Down East. Now I canít for the life of me figure out why they call it down east. Itís not down, itís up north from the entire rest of the east coast. Itís not east, itís north of the entire rest of the east coast! Iím told it has this name ...
