That I don’t know. When we got to Portland, we pretty quickly hopped on a tour bus, and had the most amazing tour guide. She grew up there, and knew not only the history, but amazing anecdotes about stuff that wouldn’t be in tour books.

I found out that the Portland airport was where the hijackers boarded, as they thought the security would be lighter there than in Boston, and they were right. Apparently they told security there that their box cutters were used for their carpentry job, so they were allowed to take them on. This according to the tour guide.

Ended up in Kinnebunk/Kinnebunkport. Boy, was it jammed! Cool place, and drove past Bush’s compound. Apparently when Bush Sr. is in residence, the American, Maine, and Texas flags are flown, and sure enough, all three were flying. Course, we didn’t see anyone we recognized while riding the bus. :-)

Too much to see, not enough time. First time in these areas, so will have to make plans to come back so we have more time to look around. I was told that Bar Harbor and Kinnebunkport pretty much shut down after October, and they hunker down in preparation for OVER 100 INCHES OF SNOW OVER THE WINTER!

We’re at Logan airport right now, and my own bed is sounding pretty good right now! Should be back by mid afternoon.
