Flat Stanley woke up and the wind was whipping his hair to and fro. He was happy to get into the lobby of the hotel without blowing away! The waffles at the hotel are the best with fresh Maine blueberries!
“Maine is where we’re heading today,” Nana said, seeming to read his mind. “Maine is known for their blueberry crops and they are delicious!” she said, solidifying his assumption. She CAN read minds!
After a hearty breakfast, Nana and Papa drove about 20 minutes north to the Sarah Mildred Long bridge. It’s a LONG bridge that takes you out of New Hampshire and into Maine. Flat Stanley thought the bridge looked like four rocket ships rising into the sky. So, of course he took a picture.
Once in Maine, Nana and Papa headed for the beach.
“Maine has beautiful beaches and I love to listen to the waves splashing against the shore,” Nana said.
She collected a few rocks for Papa and Flat Stanley took pictures.
They made their way all the way to York, where Nana was thrilled to see all of the old houses, antique shops and little art galleries. It is a fun little town.
There’s also an historical lighthouse in Maine, well there are many of them; but we went to the one in York.
The Cape Neddick Light is a lighthouse in Cape Neddick, York, Maine. Construction began on this historical lighthouse in 1879.
After a windy walk along the shore there, they got back in the car and Papa said he had a hankering for LOBSTER!
“When in Maine…”
When we pulled up the restaurant, Papa hopped out and found himself a lobster.
He literally, found himself a LOBSTER!
And guess what Nana found? She found herself a Captain!
It was a fun afternoon and the lobster plates were wonderful.
Flat Stanley had to use the mens room in the restaurant. On his way, he looked up and found these buoys hanging from the ceiling. You know he wanted to, you know he had to, do you think he did?
I think he did. But he had the camera, so we’ll never know for sure.
He does keep us smiling. I hope this finds you smiling too! Enjoy your day! Please subscribe so that Nana can send you a free smile in your email box every day! Thank you for telling your friends about Flat Stanley’s Adventures!
