Being five hours ahead of ourselves means that we wake up very early and can see the dawn – in the photo, rising between Thorn Mountain and Black Mountain.
After a walk to Jackson Falls this morning we did a drive to find more covered bridges and went into The White Mountain National Forest where the Autumn leaves were just spectacular – oohs and aahs around every corner. Another beautiful day! .
Today we found our second lighthouse, our first covered bridge , travelled through more small towns with pretty white Churches, admiring leaves and Hallowe’en decorations everywhere but not always able to take photos, especially when it was my turn to drive! Come with us as we drive from Kennebunkport to Cape Elizabeth to see The Portland Head Light, one we know of through the well known painting by Edward Hopper which we have on our landing at home.
After a picnic lunch by the sea, with home just across the pond, we set off for Jackson, up past Sebago Lake then Naples where I met a lovely chap while admiring his Harley. I was telling him how I have always wanted to ride a Harley and he laughed, saying so had he. Just two weeks ago he went on a two day course, the day after he bought his beautiful bike and now here he was riding and having fun! He just turned 64 so there’s hope yet!
On then to Jackson, going through the Jackson Covered Bridge to find the quaintest General Store and on to our hotel for two nights where we have a view of the mountains. .
