We woke to another beautiful day today. It took us a while but we were finally ready and we left the park for the day. First stop was the chocolate factory.
|We signed up for the tour|
|This is the Pod that holds the cocoa beans|
|Each bear has 20 pieces|
|Each bear is sewn by hand no automation here|
|We enjoyed the tour.|
We decided to cut cross country to stay out of the traffic on the way back. We took the dirt roads and I noticed on the map that we were near two covered bridges. We got lucky and found both of them. They were both Arch style bridges and were in great shape. Each handles lots of traffic everyday.

So we got up a little early today, another beautiful day in Vermont. It is a bit cooler today and that suits us fine. We had the coach packed, unhooked and ready to go by 10am. As we were about to hook up the car a gentleman came over and introduced himself. It turned out to be a fellow Beaver owner and one that I have corresponded with on the Beaver Ambassador Forum, Ed B. We chatted for about 20 minutes and then said our good byes and see u on line. Then we finished hooding up and checking the lights. We pulled out around 10:25.
I took the first shift behind the wheel and drove us to the visitors center and rest stop as we entered New Hampshire. Bonnie fixed some sandwiches and then she took a seat behind the wheel. She drove us across the state and into the Visitors center in Maine.
|Could that be the bridge to Maine|
|Why yes it is|
Blueberry Pond CG is a small 49 site family owned campground. We are in a thick pine forest and we will be well shaded for the 6 nights that we are staying here. We were both tired so we had spaghetti for supper and relaxed. We get TV here but have not found the network channels yet. It took me a while but I got my cradle point router set up so that all our computers are connecting to the WiFi here and it is working well. We are 4.5 miles out of Freeport where LL Bean is and we have the name of a local lobster restaurant so I am hoping for some lobster tomorrow.
Nice and sunny when I woke up now the sun is in and out of the clouds. They say rain tomorrow so we will save the shopping until then. No moose sightings yet just a lot of warning signs. The WiFi is pretty good here but gets pretty slow at times. So we are off to see whats up in the area.
First priority was to get some lobster for lunch. The campground owner told us were the locals go and we headed toward the water to check out Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster. It was right down on the water and we were able to sit outside and enjoy.

|Finally our lobster roll was ready|
After lunch we drove through Freeport which seems to center around the L.L. Bean stores. Bonnie wanted to look in a few consignment and estate sale stores so I waited in the car and read a little and napped a little.
Bonnie found some things to buy.
|She has a purpose for all this|
|Nice roomy site|
Well thats about it for tonight. I tried to sign into a webinar for RVillage.com but not enough bandwidth so I listened in on the phone. Now its time to get ready to see what the President has to say.
Thanks For Checking In!
