A Maine Adventure
Eagle Lake locomotives abandoned in 1933
Eagle Lake is part of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. These two locomotives were abandoned in 1933 along with many rail cars, of which, all that is left are the wheels still sitting on the rails. The Allagash lies west of Baxter State Park and is roughly a 600 mile round trip from Biddeford Pool. If you undertake this trip remember to take the second right at mile marker 15. Once on this road you have an additional 6 mile drive and then a 45 min walk into the trains. At the end of the trail your first view of these locomotives is through evergreen trees and it is a sight you will not soon forget.
The Seaside Fair Returned
Saturday, July 15th, 10am – 3pm
After a 3 year hiatus the Sea Side Fair returned with a vengeance. The weather certainly helped, as it was overcast keeping people off the beaches and participating in the great American tradition of shopping. Traffic was heavy from morning to late afternoon. Eve McPheeters called this years Fair a “HUGH SUCCESS” for BPCC, that means a great big THANK YOU needs to go out to all the volunteers that made this happen. From set-up to take-down and everything in between this is a big undertaking and requires alot of people to make it the success it apparently was. So if you were involved please give yourself a big pat on the back, rest up, and get ready to do it all over again next year. Remember it is all for a Good Cause.
