I’ve just finished reading Crescendo
by Becca Fitzpatrick and wanted to feature the town in her novel: Coldwater, Maine. It turns out that this is a fictional town. It would have been nice to feature the boardwalks, beaches and amusements parks as described by Becca but no such luck. So we move on to the next closest, real
town that is mentioned throughout: Portland, Maine.
It’s often been a thought of mine to hit the road, travelling down through the Canadian East Coast, then hopping the board and trekking down the coastline of the States. A stop in Maine would be a must for me to get that authentic Maine lobster dinner. Yum!
I’m also a sucker for lighthouses, so you’ll find a few in our travels this week. The funny thing is that in doing my research, I found the picture showing the crash of the Annie Maguire, as commemorated on the rocks. This picture has come across my path in the past….strange coincidence…I actually know someone with a very similar name.
Even the lovely summertime locales go through some bad weather.
Lobster, a fave of mine
The obligatory nighttime shot.
A bit of fog surrounding a lighthouse.
The rocks where the Annie Maguire was shipwrecked.
The mist rolling in from the ocean, how Stephen King is this?
A cobblestone roadway and outdoor cafe?! Beautiful, old world charm.
I hope you enjoyed our tour this week. I sure did!
