Two weeks in Maine

In late June, we drove into Maine and headed for Portland, a city we had only been to once before but, which we remembered fondly (not least for its great bakery).

We got lucky and happened into town at the same time as the annual Portland Schoonerfest & Regatta.

We were able to park our RV (for free) in Fort Allen Park on the East end of Portland, overlooking Casco Bay and from there, we could enjoy both the views of the beautiful tall ships sailing by and cycle into town for baked goods!

And check out these amazing boats – definitely worth a visit to Portland, Maine in late June:

We drove out of the city a bit also, to watch the tall ships sail by Portland Head Light at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth (a pretty suburb south of Portland).

For camping close to Portland, we used Bradbury Mountain State Park and Winslow Park in Freeport.

Our last US camping stops (before heading into Canada) were Acadia National Park and Cobscook Bay State Park with day visits to Rockport, Camden, Bar Harbor, Eastport, Quoddy Head State Park and Lubec.

From this point, you run out of US of A land (if you want to keep moving north) and cross the border into Canada (o Canada) and we’ll be sharing all of that soon.

Our next blog post is one that quite a few people have been asking for – RV Road Trip Expenses – we’ll share with you how much money we spent getting from Florida (April) to the Canadian border in Maine (July).
