Our tour director was not sure how the custom originated of attaching locks to this fence.

Our first scheduled stop on Sunday was at L.L. Bean headquarters in Freeport, ME.

Note the waterfall.

It had rained that day, so you can tell that this bench is wet.

After spending some time in L.L. Bean, we walked around the town looking for souvenirs.  Cool As A Moose sells Maine T-shirts and so on.

I wasn't the first one to climb up to this candy store, but I willingly followed, and bought some chocolate covered cranberries.  Surprisingly, they stayed fresh all the way back to Pittsburgh and then all the way home, and I opened them after arrivng home.

Our overnight stop for Day 2 (Sunday) was in Boothbay, ME, at the Boothbay Harbor Inn.  We stayed here on Monday night, also.This was a pleasant hotel with free breakfast in the dining room which looked out onto the water.  A footbridge (1,000 feet long, so only about one-fifth of a mile) connected the hotels on one side of the bay with the downtown area on the opposite side of the bay.

This is the back of the hotel, facing the water.  The door opens into the dining room.

This picture was taken after dinner.  Darkness comes early to Boothbay and the rest of Maine, compared with other places which are also in the Eastern Time Zone.

The next few shots were all taken from behind the hotel on Monday morning.

Our first activity on Monday, Day 3, was a tour onboard our own bus, with a local step-on guide narrating.  Rather than take us through the downtown area, which we would be able to explore later via the footbridge, she directed us to an area known as Ocean Point.

This tiny island was visible from the shore at Ocean Point.
