The Journey begins, part 9

We arrived at Wolfe's Neck Oceanfront Camping, near Freeport, Maine, Oct. 18.  Their power was out there too, so we we got some use out of our generator.  In fact, generators were running everywhere!



Freeport is the headquarters of L.L. Bean, and their flagship store has over 200,000 sq. ft.  It's open 24 hours a day, 360 days a year.  I wonder if that's true with Covid 19?  The 7 acre area contains  other L.L. Bean stores including the Bike, Boat and Ski Store, Hunting and Fishing Store, and the Home Store.  Across the street is the Freeport outlet mall, and yes, L.L. Bean has an outlet store there. I had so much fun browsing and Pat was a good sport.

Wolfes Neck farm has been a sustainable coastal farm for nearly sixty years, As well as the campground, Wolfe’s Neck Center is home to a leading demonstration farm, and educational resource center for innovative practices in regenerative agriculture.

We were there for their Fall Festival.  The sheep herding demonstration with Border Collies  was very interesting.  Smart dogs!  The best Krikkit could do when she was younger was get behind our knees and herd us.  Of course she herded us for her benefit!



We visited several lighthouses, Two Lights, Doubling Point Lighthouse and Portland Head Lighthouse where we also saw Fort Williams. From here you could see 4 lighthouses.

  1. Pics of lighthouses are beautiful! The one on the cliff with building would make a nice zigsaw puzzel.
