  • Long Sands

    Long Sands
    Long Sands is a beach all long and sandy in Southern Maine. It was popular with native Americans before white people came as a place for fishing and harvesting 25 pound lobsters from off the rocks (for real 25 pounds was the common size before whitey came) and then settlers came in the 1630s. Some wars happened, many settlers and many more natives were killed, natives left, the sea-trade came. Crazy things happened like a mile out into the sea from this beach, there is a tiny rock outcropping called Boon Island where a ship crashed and the sailors were stuck out there, this is the 1850s, anyways they were stuck for a couple of months in the winter and they started to eat the dead guys to stay alive, we don't remember this in history because the Donner party is more famous now.
  • Fun-o-rama

    Fun-o-rama
    Fun-o-rama is like this old azz arcade place right on the Short Sands beach, it is up in Southern Maine, USA. This beach town originally became a vacation spot for the rich and famous or at least upper class during the gilded age, Mark Twain stayed a long weekend once, anyways there are all these old type buildings that used to be grand hotels surrounding Fun-o-rama but this building is just a kid. After World War II Americans started to have the money for vacation, like regular working class Americans... my grandpa went for the first time to Fun-O-rama in 1948, the building was new, Skee-ball was a penny and the whole vacation costed him 65 dollars for the week. The rich left when the regular working man came and so now it s a very wacky mix.
  • Acadia (Bar Harbor)

    Acadia (Bar Harbor)
    This might seem to be very far out of the way to go, which it is. Acadia National Park is a sight to be seen, you can either hike up on the paths or take the drive up. It's one of those few places in Maine that is actually worth going to.
