Our Drive to Houlton, Maine

Two days after the snow storm, we drove up to Houlton, Maine. I mostly took pictures of beautiful homes along the way. It was beautiful drive. p1040025-001Starting off on our drive on Highway 1, the coastal drive. p1040030-001The Red Sleigh ahead… one of the many cute shops along the way. p1040032-001p1040035-001What a beautiful home. Many homes still have their pretty Christmas wreaths on their doors or windows. p1040040-001p1040041-002This home is pending in Robbinston, Maine… 39 acres, the home and barn for only $85,000. No kidding!p1040044-001p1040048-001A hotel in Robbinston, Maine. p1040059-001p1040069-001Coming into Calais… Our girls love the looks of these homes. p1040070-001

I did a editing job and now it’s even prettier. p1040086-001p1040091-001Getting out of the woodsy area and into the farmlands of Aroostook, County. The most beautiful place we’ve ever seen! p1040095-001Lots of salt/chemical on the roads makes it pretty clear. p1040097-001Beautiful, quiet Maine. It just feels different here. p1040099-001p1040101-001The colors of choice for the homes are very pretty. p1040103-001I love the greens, yellows and pretty red homes all about. p1040105-001Since moving here, we have found that people leave their keys in their cars with the motor running while they go grocery shopping, to the bank and the post office. It is very safe here and people trust one another here. Where else are you going to find that?p1040106-001p1040107-001p1040108-001Coming into Houlton, Maine. p1040109-001I wish I could have gotten a picture of the home on the sharp right. It reminds me of the homes in my mother’s old neighborhood in a suburb of Seattle – Magnolia.p1040112-001A couple of the shops across the street from where we had to stop. Not like the buildings in downtown Houlton but still kind of special.
