We entered Maine and went to visit the Cape Neddick Lighthouse but there was no room to park our rig so I snapped a pic
Then it was on towards LL Bean to have a look.
We heard about a boondocking spot here at LL Bean but that area has since been developed. When I asked the staff at LL Bean about parking for the night I was told you can "unofficially" stay at their RV parking lot down the road by the LL Bean Outlet.
"You aren't supposed to but people do it and we don't tow you"
is what I was told. There were others parked there but we decided to backtrack a bit and head to the Cabela's at Scarborough. We knew we could stay there with no troubles and the thought of being asked to move in the middle of the night, packing the girls into their car seats, and searching for somewhere else to go didn't sound like fun. Before leaving though we had a look around LL Bean. The girls had fun playing in the kids section and we managed to leave without a single thing :)
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.
|I loved the layers of these rocks|
|If there is a puddle to be found...Aayla will find it!|
|In the fishermens museum their was a room filled with |
scrapbooks about fishing and some
books for the girls to read too.
We now know it takes an hour to boil water so only buy the lobster if you are ready to cook it right away! We were told to get our guys in the water within an hour. They were out for 1 1/2 hours but were both still moving so we cooked them up as soon as the water would let us.
Sierra also learned a hard lesson tonight. Meat comes from animals. She was devistated that we cooked her little friends.
Which were not nearly as enjoyable as they should have been. It's really hard to enjoy a lobster when someone (Sierra) is holding onto their claws, petting them and saying, "I'm sorry my mom cooked you. I am sorry you can't be with your family. I'm sorry you are dead. I am sorry my mom just ripped off your leg, I am sorry my mom is going to eat you...Mom he wants to go back to his family...you can't eat him"!!! and then bursts out in more tears...poor girl I felt so bad.
