RE: Shout out to Dwhatty


In haste:

First of all, it was unseasonably warm today. 38F

Not much to see/do between Rockland and Portland this time of year. All the sidewalks are rolled up til summer complaint/flatlander season.

For me, a must see in Rockland:* Owl's Head Tansportation Museum. Open year round.

Or Farnsworth Museum if you are into Aht.

Primo is the THE Rockland restaurant, but it is closed til May.

Here's a link to others, but I have no personal knowledge of any of them.

Portland evidently has many good restaurants and things to do/see but I am not up on them. My son is, but he just went back to the tugs in NYC so I can't readily pick his brain.
