MAINE: my final frontier. These are the voyages of the Scooter Vespa 250 i.e. Super. Its continuing mission - to explore America's most heavily forested state - to roam the vast coastline, numberless lakes, and mighty mountains. To boldly go where no scooter has gone before!

Green and Brown

"All in November's soaking mist
We stand and prune the naked tree,
While all our love and interest
Seem quenched in the blue-nosed misery."

         Ruth Pitter, 1897-1992, The Diehards, 1941

On this final day of November in Maine, there was no sign of "blue-nosed misery." Indeed, the temperature hit 65 degrees, and I took advantage of that fluke of weather to ride to Scarborough and Old Orchard Beach.

And while the weather was indeed marvelous, the scenery was dramatically different from that of July.

July's greenery

November's brownery

Deserted in the Fall

Busy in the summer

Canoeing in the water

Canoeing on land?
