Day 29, Tues, Sept 30, Bucksport to Freeport, Maine

This place doesn't look like much, but people come here from all over to eat freshly caught lobster and other atlantic seafood here at the Haraseeket Lobster Co. in Freeport.

We orded one large lobster, two ears of corn, a boiled potato, cole slaw and gigantic onion rings! Pretty good eating!

We stopped for the night in Freeport, Maine. After getting settled in our hotel room we asked the proprietor if she could recommend a restuarant. She told us to go to the Harraseeket Lobster Co. located at the docks in the commercial fishing district.

This picture was taken as waited for our lobster to boil in the small but very popular and busy Harraseeket restaurant just off this dock area to the right.

This is typical of the older homes, small farms and rural lifestyle that exists along country roads in Maine.

This was taken as we drove south from Bucksport on US 1 somewhere near Searsport and Belfast, Maine.

This scene is typical of the hundreds of inlets and the small seaside villages that dot the Maine coastline.

We stopped here in Camden on US 1 long enough to take a couple of pictures.

Tuesday morning we said goodbye to our very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Best Western 'Fort Knox Inn' (the white, flat-roofed building nearest the shore) at Bucksport and took "flight" down the Maine coastline.

This was taken during an early morning stroll along the east bank of the mighty Penobscot river as the tide was still coming in. The seagulls had been resting quietly on this small public fishing warf until I stepped onto it.
