    The sun always shines

    October 7 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    ... on TV, but not on Maine. What a wet day, especially early morning and later on in the afternoon. In between we were lucky to get a bit of drizzle only when getting out of the car. Some impressions on the way on our trip through Arcadia National Park. Not too busy, apart from the small pilgrimage to the Thunder Hole.Read more

    Sekundenglueck

    October 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    ... is when you find
    - an idea for a new project (private library in front garden to get rid of books)
    - various harbour views, und eine Insel mit zwei Bergen
    - that L.L.Bean owns almost the whole village of Freeport and has the best choice of outdoor gadgets (tent for car rooftop and portable shower especially for you, Hannah and Me)
    - that a city like Portland is much nicer than expected and
    - a tea shop where tea does not just taste like chlorine water
    - the right moment to take a picture of the lighthouse with the light on
    - decorations in weird places
    - the view in the back mirror of a perfect evening sky
    - your favourite flowers in the hotel room, plus a perfect dinner (Kartoffelbrei und Gemüse)
    - a couple of "Moch specials"... 😜

    Shake it off

    October 9 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Kennebunkport is a destination for cruise ship people but also pretty enough for a walk through the village. Afterwards a walk through the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge gave an insight into salt marshes and their importance for the environment.
    A guided tour through the Canterbury Shaker Village was very interesting and the tour guide very entertaining. Shakers are not to be mixed up with Quakers, even less with the Amish. Shakers liked to dance (Shakers = shaking Quakers), invented the first washing machines and a method for evaporated milk. And, despite inventing other clever things, made beautiful furniture. These days, there are only three shakers left in the world.Read more

    I love trash

    October 6 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Maybe the goats on the farm next to the hotel this morning were a sign that today would be rural. Actually, very quiet, with empty streets, few villages, lacking the usual motels, shops or even a Dunkin' Donuts. The route via Paris, Peru and Mexico to Bangor was lined with fluffy roadkill (raccoons or skunks? 🦝🐺) and the industry,as in old times, is still dominated by the lumber industry, plus forest products and paper fabrication. Huts, trailers and houses were mostly beyond the charming and shabby chic state. Often, the line between antiques dealer, constant yard sale, just a dump or uninhabited were flowing. More houses should have barn stars for good luck and to turn away the evil. Well, apart from Halloween... Bangor had strange people and unusual trees, though the house of Stephen King was very nice. Civilisation returned with the proximity to the sea.
    Price for Onkel Dicki: We found you The Beetle Shop with a couple of bullis. No guarantees for the quality of camp grounds involved.

    Moosehead Lake — unbeschreiblich schön

    September 22 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    9 Tage vor unserer Abreise von Halifax haben wir noch Zeit für 3 Tage Relaxing — und sind nun am Moosehead Lake in Maine, einem Tipp von unseren hamburger Freunden folgend. Und dieser See ist wahrlich Traum - und wir hatten auch noch Traumwetter, haben in einem Blockhaus direkt (!) am See gewohnt und hatten eine super nette Gruppe als Nachbarn, die uns an ihr Lagerfeuer eingeladen haben :))Read more

    ... über den See... über den See... :D

    September 23 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Wenn man schon an so einem spannend großen See "wohnt", dann sollte man ihn auch zu Wasser erkunden ;) Und so sind wir über den 305 Quadratkilometer großen Moosehead Lake gedüst - für 2½ Stunden, dann hatten wir uns "satt gesehen' 🙃

    Stops in Maine

    June 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    Yesterday we drove from Colchester, VT to Wells Beach on the coast of Maine. It was nice to be on the coast again. We ate our first lobster dinner of this trip at the Fisherman's Catch in Wells Harbor. Yummy. Today we traveled north to Palmyra, ME just west of Bangor, our last stop before Canada.

    Old Orchard Beach, Maine

    July 11 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    We spent yesterday and today in Old Orchard Beach visiting our friend Steve Putnam and his family at their summer cottage on the beach. It was nice to visit and be with them. Old Orchard is unique in Maine because the beach is seven miles of sand instead of rock. The Black Forest section of Old Orchard Beach Campground was one of the nicest parks we have stayed in on this trip.Read more

    Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor

    July 9 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 73 °F

    Yesterday we arrived back in the U.S.! Good to be back. We stopped in Bar Harbor, Maine to go to the Acadia National Park. We had great weather and the park is beautiful. The drive to the top of Cadillac Mt. provided spectacular views of the surrounding coastline and hundreds of islands.

    7.Tag USA - Ein ganz privater Horrortrip

    September 26 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Wir wollten Beide das schlechte Wetter für uns nutzen und haben uns diesen Nachmittag das erste Mal getrennt...Julia besuchte den Friseur im örtlichen Wal-Mart in Bangor um sich ihren Traum von violetten Haaren zu erfüllen, und ich wollte unbedingt „ES 2“ schauen.

    Ich hatte den Film bereits in Deutschland gesehen und wollte ihn nochmal als Originalversion in Stephen Kings Heimatstadt Bangor schauen...hier fand auch die ursprüngliche Filmpremiere statt.
    Das „Westside-Cinema“ hat allerdings seine besten Tage schon längst erlebt, und liegt etwas abseits der Stadt Bangor. Wir hatten wirklich etwas Mühe das Gebäude zu finden 😅. Und ich war tatsächlich die einzige Kinobesucherin an diesem Nachmittag 😳...ein Privatsaal für mich allein, mit alten Kinosesseln und etwas dröhnendem Ton. Nur ich, Pennywise und mein Popcorn (natürlich amerikanisch mit Salz und Butter). Das war schon ein gruseliges Erlebnis, da ich sogar einige Örtlichkeiten im Film in Bangor und der Umgebung von Maine wiedererkannte.

    Nach dem Film hatte ich noch einige nette Gespräche mit den Kinomitarbeitern, da vor der Tür gerade die Welt unterging...so stark regnete es. Wenn es einmal in Maine regnet, dann richtig...genau so wie in den amerikanischen Filmen, wenn das Wasser in Strömen die Scheibe runterläuft. So hatte ich noch Gelegenheit das Kinogebäude kennenzulernen, indem noch sehr viele alte und neue Videospielautomaten standen und im Nachbarraum eine Hüpfburglandschaft...der leider am Abend die Puste genommen wird, sonst hätte ich sie noch ausprobiert 😂. Julia fuhr tapfer allein mit Blue Rogue durch den Regen um mich wieder abzuholen und es ging zurück zum Acadia Nationalpark...mal wieder bei im Dunkeln und bei schlechtem Wetter. Hier lernen wir wirklich Auto fahren 😉.
