|We left Dainn’s house after our wonderful full course breakfast and headed to the Poland Spring (bottled water) Museum. This is a long standing resort area known in the 1800’s for it’s pure water and huge hotel, golf and tennis etc. It was another playground of the rich. It still is a resort and two buildings of note were open. The Maine State building is the actual building built for the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago totally from Maine products. It was moved to Poland Spring by the founder of the resort. This is a beautiful and unique structure housing many interesting artifacts and the Golf Hall of Fame of Maine. Across the street was All Soul Chapel another historic structure that is still in use for services and weddings. The skies were overcast with rain forecast and we headed to Freeport ME. We drove through the town where LL Bean’s Headquarters are to the Desert of Maine. An actual desert caused by poor farming techniques on land that was a huge lake with a sandy bottom in prehistoric times. We took a rain soaked guided tour and decided to camp in their campground. My birthday dinner was on Shirley as we headed to a recommended restaurant on the bay. Our dinners were excellent and we headed back to the camper. Then the rains really came. We got the storm that ran up the east coast earlier in the day. It poured all night and once again we smiled at the fact we were dry and not in a tent. Going to LL Bean today then further south, perhaps to New Hampshire. Enjoy the pics.
