We wandered into Bar Harbor while on our honeymoon in August of 1974. With no reservations, we pulled into a motel across from where the Blue Nose Ferry was docked. There was no vacancy, but the proprietor phoned his aunt who had a tourist cottage in town. She had space for us in "the ivory tower" for $15 a night. We woke up the next morning to the sound of foghorns on the bay and a room filled with fog. We have been back to Bar Harbor several times, but none could ever be as special as that first introduction. We were thrilled to see that Bass Cottage has been beautifully renovated. It is on our bucket list for our 40th anniversary in August of 2014.
It was a bright and sunny sunday afternoon, when my son brought up going to "hit a few". Although initially I thought it was too late in the day- we decided to give Traditions a look-see. 2 buckets a piece later- we both agreed- IT WAS WORTH IT. We had a good tune up and are looking forward to playing again together.
One of my best memories of Maine, happened just this past summer. Since my husband and I work all summer at our business, Northeast Guide Service, it's tough to get away with friends and family during the summer months in Maine. So, my family came to visit me in the Moosehead Lake Region during my parents 40th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the Katahdin Cruise on Moosehead, kayaking, camp fires and fun!
As part of the familiarization trip the staff had a fascinating visit to the new Outdoor Heritage Museum in Oquossoc at the corner of Routes 4 and 17 just outside of Rangeley.This museum heralds Maine's outdoor hunting and fishing heritage and the role the Rangeley area played in making Maine a premier outdoor sporting destination since the mid 1800's.The Museum tells of the adventures of sportsmen from all over the world in quest of the enormous wild brook trout and other game. Their travels, stay, and adventures are chronicled as well as famous local guides and personalities which made the area famous. A beautiful log cabin style museum completed in the fall of 2010 compliments the area and provides a setting for the rich history of the area. Loved the Visit
My co-workers and I toured the awesome Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center and enjoyed an outstanding Celtic performance from The Press Gang! It is so well designed and such an incredible stage! What a treasure in Western Maine in the town of South Carthage!
