Maine the way it should be.

Maine the way it should be.

maine1

Lately Maine has been the laughingstock of the nation. Our governor just says whatever he wants into open mikes and his head is full of things that make an editor want to wake up in the morning. We also have Stephen King who has made everyone from away think that the state is full of vampires, clowns, giant rabid dogs and other horrible things that make for pretty good reading but you don’t really want living next door to you. (None of my neighbors have ever displayed any kind of vampire tendencies but we keep a good eye out anyway) I guess the thing we’re the most famous for is that we’re the place where the big cheese of Superficial Gallery was born and grew up. Since Acadia Einstein now works in a concrete jungle where the trees are kept in museums he demanded that I go and take some photos of the fall foliage. Just imagine J. Jonah Jameson in a luchador mask yelling at Peter Parker only I’m all out of that sticky stuff that Spiderman flies around on.

    Now that I know you can walk to all those places from your house, and you can only walk for like, two feet, I am cutting your pay by 1/3.

      The whole circuit is about five miles. Before I got sick dog and I did it every other day. Now I use the truck and say “Walk” at Charlotte.

    Says something about a state where the best part is that time of year when everything withers and dies, just before the place gets covered in snow and ice.

      That covers the whole of New England and all of Canada too!

      That’s the working boat cove although the natives always make sure to keep at least a few fishing boats in with the yachts on principal.

    Your photos make me want to plan a little get away to Main. Despite all of the vampires and rabid dogs 🙂 I can only imagine how annoyed the locals get with the cruise ships that doc in town. Now i’m hungry for lobster!

      That ship is literally hiding the whole town. You can usually see Bar Harbor from the dock where I was standing.

    It’s so beautiful. My father went to Colby College and I’ve always wanted to visit there. Love that your dogs name is Charlotte, that’s pretty much where I live.

      She was supposed to be Charlie like in Steinbeck’s novel where he travels with his dog Charlie (Travels with Charlie) but when she got to Maine (After being born under a Katrina devastated house in Mobile Alabama) she turned out to be Charlotte instead.

      Is that the one in Rockland? Farm to table is great and they’ve got a sustainable farm to make it even better.

    What a beautiful place, I don’t know much about Maine but it certainly looks lovely. Autumn is always a beautiful time of year too.

    Maine is on my list as I have been to many of the States. A lobster pond does look cool! The colours are pretty and remind me of home 🙂

    Simply stunning. My goal is to visit every state and I really just want to eat some lobster (I’m sure you haven’t heard -that- before) but I had no clue your foliage was so gorgeous. I don’t have that where I live and not that I miss the cold, but I’m a sucker for pretty colors.

    Maine has its own very unique beauty, and as an advocate of local tourism, I hope this would be maintain for years to come. I like those leaves falling on the ground 😀

    Maine is on my travel bucket list. My youngest son wants to study marine biology, and several schools up that way are on our list to check out. Definitely will need to spend some time Maine.
