    We had reservations in Gettysburg but had to cancel due to flooding. Maine looked less rainy so we took a chance. We found a quiet KOA in Freeport/Durham Maine close to the 24 hour LL Bean, Outlet stores, Old Orchard Beach, Funtown Splashtown Amusement Park, the famous Wicked Whoopie store, the fancy MCDonalds (which wasn't really that fancy) and spent a day at Popham Beach State Park. Home of the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! And finished up with a visit to Popham Fort. Not bad for a last minute "plan B" vacation.... and a nice place to spend our 14th wedding anniversary :)

    It is a long haul from South Carolina. Speaking of hauls.... we are thinking about towing to Pensacola and staying at the Fort Pickens campground! Will need an AC though :)
