Day 5 Stowe, Vermont - Bangor, Maine

The drive out of Stowe was beautiful! Huge boulders, ferns, and trees dripping from the misty day.

We stopped by Rovers North so that David could drool on their Land Rovers. They were very nice. Greg, one of the salesmen, gave us a tour and let us look around. Maybe David will tell you all about that sometime.

This neat old railroad is the Fisher Bridge. It's no longer in use, but was the last covered railroad bridge in Vermont.

As we continued on to Maine, we saw lots of roadside antique places. It was hard to decide which ones might be worth stopping at, but this one caught David's eye with all the neat signs. We left empty-handed, but it was a really interesting place.

We ended the day in Bangor, Maine at The Charles Inn. It was an interesting place! Our key (yes, actual key rather than magnetic card) wouldn't work, so we went back to the front desk. The woman working that evening headed back up with us to show us the trick of unlocking the door. As we walked, she explained that this was Stephen King country. Soon, we opened the door into a neat room...that looked a little like the set from a Stephen King movie. Soon after we went to sleep, there was a persistent knock at the door. David opened to find a very surprised French speaking woman. All in all, it was quite an experience!

I wanna go! I wanna go!

But I don't want to stay in the Stephen King room. A confused French woman? Do tell!

Hi Keetha! The French woman was apparently looking for someone or something other than David in boxers yanking open the door looking annoyed. :)
