Maine 2021

by on Oct.20, 2021, under Flying

Joyce and I flew to Rock­land Maine, on Tues­day, Octo­ber 12th to vis­it one of our favorite places and see the fall col­ors. The flight up was inter­est­ing in that weath­er forced us inland with a fuel and lunch stop in Mar­tins­burg, WV. We did an instru­ment approach, refu­eled had lunch then con­tin­ued to the Rock­land air­port. Head­winds all the way so the total fly­ing time end­ed up being 7.7 hours. We picked up a rental car and drove up the coast past Cam­den to our favorite B & B the Inn and Sun Rise Point. Matt and M.J. the own­ers wel­comed us, made a din­ner reser­va­tion, and made us com­fort­able. A glass of wine and din­ner and we got a great night’s sleep.

Wednes­day, after a fab­u­lous break­fast we head­ed back to the air­port to meet our friends Harold and Ellen Yanof­sky who flew over from their sum­mer home in New Hamp­shire. We had a delight­ful lunch at a restau­rant on the water in Rock­port and after drop­ping them off at the air­port did some leaf-peep­ing in the area south of Cam­den. Beau­ti­ful! The peo­ple at the Inn made a reser­va­tion at a restau­rant in Cam­den, called Natal­ie’s, which turned out to be out­stand­ing. Oys­ters, lob­ster, decon­struct­ed choco­late cake, yumm.

Thurs­day after anoth­er spec­tac­u­lar break­fast, we drove north up the coast to the town of Belfast to view the fall foliage and coast­line. We returned to Cam­den for a lit­tle shop­ping and sight­see­ing. We returned to the Inn to relax then were off to a local restau­rant for our last lob­ster and oys­ters of the trip.

The fore­cast for Sat­ur­day was pret­ty ugly so we decid­ed to leave Fri­day morn­ing. We took off and climbed through a low ceil­ing to enjoy tail­winds all the way. We stopped for fuel and lunch at George Town, Delaware, and were home in Hilton Head by 4:00 PM. Great quick trip in our mag­ic carpet.
