Re: Day trips from Portland ME
Thanks for the suggestions.
I will be staying in Gorham.
It's been about 30 years since I rode the Kank--a good suggestion. Too bad The Old Man of the mountains is gone.
I moved here from Becket MA, the Berkshires, in 1989. I'll be heading to Becket from Gorham for 4th of July weekend to visit with family, and a couple of more times during the summer. But, we will probably be taking the interstate on those trips.
While I was visiting Gorham during March, my friend brought to me to Bar Harbour--FANTASTIC food. It was so good, I insisted we go back again before I left. For me, their food was like getting home grown tomatoes vrs tomatoes from a supermarket.
One of the foods I'd like to find in the area is fried Oysters. Before I moved out here I went to the Cape for a weekend and stopped by a small place that had fresh fried oysters.
When I lived in Nashua NH during the late 60s I was introduced to "Bert and I". When I was in the Gorham are it was exciting for me when my fried had to go to Bangor for a two day business meeting.
Maybe I should plan a trip to Millinocket and East Vassalboro?
