Geo: 43.3839, -70.5453 We spent 2 days touring around Bar Harbor. It was a little hard with the national park closed. We went to a small beach. We saw a lighthouse. We drove around and looked at the colorful trees. We walked around the village. On Sunday we left Bar Harbor for Kennebunk Beach. This was mostly a one night stop. On the way down we toured Fort Knox and went up to the observatory on the bridge over the Penobscot Narrows. Its a huge bridge, with an observatory at the top of one of its towers. Its 420 feet above the river. Great views from there. Next up a drive to Concord and Lexington, Mass. The "shot heard round the world".... read more

I selected Biddeford as a home port for my first stop in Maine largely because of its proximity to the storied Maine coastline, its location between Portsmouth NH and Portland ME and its nearness to a high-profile neighbor - Kennebunkport. Tuesday, July 24, 2012 was thickly overcast from the outset, but rain was held in check until I was about two miles from the RV park. A light rain was a mere inconvenience during set-up.

I was directly across from a picturesque, peaceful pond that can be viewed from very few RV windows because, it appears, there was no master plan way back when. Be that as it may, I wasn’t there to enjoy the park facility ... read more

Packing for a year in China is not an easy matter. I've spent a good part of the day going through my cloths trying to decide what to take, what to leave behind for when I come back, and what to give to goodwill. So much of my wardrobe looks like stuff the a teenager would wear, even though I left my teens behind a little over three years ago. I'm used to a very casual work environment, really. At the library I could show up in my jeans and my "this is what a feminist looks like" t-shirt, and the candle store is even less formal than that. I'm not big on cloths shopping, but I really need to get some new stuff. I'm not thin enough to be able to just buy new cloths ... read more

Day Negative 2 Weather is calm. Not a cloud in the sky, or as far as I (Elena) can see from the computer lab window. Supplies. We need some. Specifically a water bottle, jam and maple syrup (for gifts, we don't just enjoy these things). Besides that though, we're set to go. Yay Peru! Elena and Tom... read more
