Having a Blast

Saturday we didn't do a lot, but did take a short hike in the nearby bird sanctuary Carrie found a few weeks back. They allow dogs on leash. And the birds have a really nice fireplace.

Sunday we took a road trip up to the Penobscot Narrows Observatory high atop the new bridge. It's the only one of its kind in the US and the tallest in the world.

While in the area, we decided to go next door to Fort Knox. Yes, there is another Fort Knox. This one doesn't have piles of gold, but has rambling old tunnels that we wandered around in.

En route to and from we made a lot of stops. I added another 8 post offices to my collection of photos of post offices I have been to. I found a ceramic figure of Sandy, the dog from Little Orphan Annie, bought a bunch of old post cards at non-collector prices.

We also stopped at Sandy Point Beach and saw an osprey nest complete with parents and chicks on some old pilings!


  1. Like the pictures! You've found loads of neat places there. Looks like you could film a movie at Fort Knox. :)

  2. The world is full of neat places, we just have to look.

    I think a Doctor Who movie could be filmed at the fort. Especially if the bridges next door to it were included as locations.

  3. Great photos! Thank you for sharing all of your adventures!
