We heard about this amazing place out in the country for sauerkraut. Being of German decent, this should be a staple for me, right? You can see on the website that Morse's Sauerkraut has quite a reputation.
So many items of interest. Hubby had a sausage plate, I had a Reuben. He's not a fan of the sauerkraut, cuz he's a Dane! As you are reading this, we are now leaving Maine to travel West. I'll post some other events for you to see while we drive. Linda Kay
Just about to burst my buttons for my youngest granddaughter Kenze. She decided last winter to join the Army, went through boot camp in Oklahoma at Fort Sil, and recently completed her course in Animal Specialty at Fort Sam in San Antonio. She is off to Virginia this week for her first assignment!
Kenze is 5'10" tall, very athletic. She can hunt, fish, and ride horses. Isn't she just beautiful? Linda Kay
If you are a Shawhank Redemption fan as I am, you would have enjoyed our stop at the Maine State Prison Retail Store. The old MSP was a horrible place to be sent as a prisoner. There are stories about how the prisoners were lowered into cells in the ground at the end of the day, after long hours of working. Since Shawhank is actually a fictional place, there are probably more than one place to claim the fame. We do know that King interviewed prisoners and personnel at the old prison before it was destroyed and the prisoners moved to a new prison location not far away. The actual filming took place in Ohio. From both the old and then new prisons came artistic products of wood and other talents, as artisans train the prisoners in these crafts. In the old days they created fine buggys and such, now they create beautiful bowls, ships, cutting boards and a cute little hobby horse we found for our great granddaughter!
More recently, the site was visited by the crew of Castle Rock. Can't you just picture Andy tunneling through this hill from the prison to his freedom in the river below? Linda Kay
