Memories of the Maine Seacoast
// November 29th, 2011 // Places
[Coastal Maine] — Lonely lighthouses, stacks of lobster pots, and mist-draped harbors. The sounds of seagulls and distant foghorns. These are a few of my Maine motorcycling memories. Earlier this year, I spent several days riding from Kittery to Calais for HOG magazine, a distance of about 300 miles. There were few tourists, as it was just before Memorial Day, the start of the traditional tourist season. I had many of the places practically to myself; just the way I like it. The Maine seacoast is a beautiful area; Bar Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, and Acadia National Park were among the trip’s highlights.
Look for an upcoming post in which I’ll write about LL Bean, Whoopie Pies, and the Maine Maritime Museum — three disparate stops from the trip which I’ll try to incorporate into one post. For now, enjoy these views of the Maine seacoast!
