A day full of sunshine??!! Could it be? This was exactly what we experienced during our trip to Maine today. What a fabulous day of history and natural beauty. We began our day at Pemaquid State Park where we viewed the remains of the colonial Pemaquid building and museum. Here we saw a different method of construction from the early colonists at Plimoth; here they built their homes on rock foundations rather than just dirt floors. We also visited a reconstruction of Fort William Henry; a military fort that was attacked and destroyed by the French and Native Americans.
Maine June 17, 2011
Our last stop of the day was to Freeport; the home of LL Bean. Not really a historic site in the traditional sense but historic none the less. Most of us ate lobster in one form or another. It just doesn’t seem right to go to Maine and not eat lobster!
Overall, it was interesting to hear of the colonial experience from someplace other than Massachusetts. An interesting opinion I heard today was how some people from Maine don’t care for people from Massachusetts. Apparently this has to do with the time when Maine was part of Massachusetts; there seems to still be some resentment!
One more day in New England.
