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!

We are NOT lost!

Mike wanted to go to Richmond, by way of Route 24. "You lead," he said. "No problem," I said.

Here is the trip, as we rode it, and as Mike intended:

Along the way, we saw one of the several secret gardens where fishermen and sailors grow buoys to mark their anchorages.

Here are buoys in their natural habitant.
After over an hour of what Mike thought was wandering, we stopped and he expressed his opinion of my navigational skills. Look to your left, Mike!

  1. Well, I know one thing: If I lived in your area I'd have the best time riding with you two even if my Metro couldn't keep up!

    1. Martha,

      We do have fun, I must say. We're headed out tomorrow afternoon, with temps predicted in the high 80s and zero chance of rain!

      Conglatulations, by the way, on your new beginning.

  2. Martha, with a little luck I'm going to get the chance. I'll be sure to let you know how that goes.

    Dying to see those buoy farms!

    1. Deb,

      Come on up anyway - you could ride with Mike, who, at about 140 pounds can carry a rider. At my present weight, anything heavier than a small cat puts me over the weight limit of my Vespa.

  4. Cute post, love the sense of humor.

    Those buoy farms must be like the marshmallow farms we have in Oregon.

    1. Trobairitz,

      Can I assume that the miniature marshmallows are grown in window boxes?

  5. Thomas:

    you've got everything you need over there. Buoy Farms and I'm still scratching my head trying to find the Maine Hood ornament in that last photo. Too bad you couldn't zoom in a bit more

  6. Tom,
    I'd follow your Vespa ANYwhere in Maine, even through the deepest sand.

  7. Well...Mike's perpetual habit of "finding new and interesting places" that you never really intended to pass kinda has him thinking that being on the actual, correct road is a little misleading. ;)
