Snippets of Maine

Our itinerary along the Maine coast was structured as a road trip with a lot of comparatively small stops. There is no particular narrative that lends itself to such an approach. This tranche of visuals represents brief impressions of a quartet of such stops in different parts of the state coastline.

Historic district of Bath.

Bath is a nice enough town, but is likely to be no more than a passing point on most people’s itineraries. Maine Maritime Museum is one nearby point of interest, and Bath Iron Works shipyard could be of additional interest to enthusiasts.

A house in Wiscasset.

There are a couple of potentially interesting historic mansions in Wiscasset and a cluster of interesting galleries and craft shops.

In Boothbay Harbor, with its wooden footbridge.

The harborside and the compact historic core are quite picturesque – Boothbay Harbor is definitely among the towns that we especially liked.

Reputedly delightful Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, as well as the Maine State Aquarium, are within the vicinity of Boothbay Harbor.

In Castine at dusk.

We spent too little time in Castine for it to make a proper impression on us. There are a couple of minor historical points of interest nearby, and it is home to Maine Maritime Academy, which means that the training vessel, TS State of Maine, is oftentimes docked in the Castine port.
