64Bentley

Yesterday, Elenka and Birdman set off on one of their great 'day adventures'. Got your GPS handy? We headed to Standish to North Sebago, Naples, to Bridgton, Waterford, North Waterford, onto to Lynchville, Bethel, passing through Newry, and Grafton Notch, passing into New Hampshire onto Errol, Milan, Berlin, Cascade, Gorham,  Shelburne, back into Maine at Gilead, Locke Mills, on to  Woodstock, Paris, to Norway, Oxford, Poland, Casco, back to Naples then back to North Sebago, Standish and our driveway. All in all, it was a 5 hour trip to an area of Maine and New Hampshire that we have been away from for quite awhile. It was nice to get back.We saw lots of sights along the way. Mostly trees! There is one heck of a lot of woods up there. We had lunch along the Androscoggin River. Who knew it stretched that far up into the wilds of the Granite State.
And now a few answers----
No, we didn't see any moose.
I did see a few hawks... no eagles
Stopped at a store that sold rifles, wood stoves, jewelry, huge safes and loads of other stuff that one needs to sustain life away from the rest of the world. Life is different up here!
I had a loaded tuna sub for lunch.
Yes, I drove all the way.
I wish! This 1964 Bentley is not ours.
Of course, we had a wonderful day together!

  1. Nothing better than a 5-hour trip, touring interesting places! we love to do that ourselves. The car in the photo wants to visit cities; it's not the vehicle for your kind of trip!

  6. Sounds like a wonderful day to me. I haven't been on a long drive in months and I always enjoy myself when I do go. Given some of those names, it sounds like you took a trip around the world.

  8. Naples? Milan? Berlin? Woodstock? Paris? Norway? Poland? It sounds like a passport was in order!

  14. That sounds like a wonderful trip. It has been a long time since I went out for a trip just to have a trip. These days I am going to A for a reason and then to B for a reason. I still get around plenty, but it is more purposeful. The lazy ambling around has been lost. Now, if I had that Bentley . . . . . . . .
