My father tried to get photos of all the state capitol buildings. Whenever he was in a state, he would try to get to the capitol. These were his photos of Maine's capital taken in 1956.

Interesting Maine history museum. I can't add much right now since I haven't been to it in over 10 years. Someday I will revisit.

As we travel around the U S, we like to visit the different state capitols. We passed through Augusta at a time that did not allow us to actually go inside the building. I could not find much about the actual building except that it is built of granite from Maine. The town of Augusta has been the capital since 1827. Because the town is small, it is easy to get around in and many of the attractions are very close to the capitol. It is a very pretty town located on the Kennebec River.

the L.L. Bean store. I think it's either the only one, or the first one. Either way, it's a cool store, bit too. It's in Freeport though, Not Augusta. That's a really nice area to shop, the stores are great.

The Maine State Museum is a lot more interactive than it used to be and the staff of the state library is really helpful. If you want to experience friendly assistance go there with a young person who has to complete a research project on Maine -- or go there with questions of your own.

This was our dinner on our first night of our road trip to Florida. Its right across from the Super 8 where we are staying . Its bright and very mexican looking . The service is friendly and fast . They start with nachos and great spicy salsa. Almost like the real thing , we get in Mexico. I found too much cheese on all the dinner so I would hold the cheese next time, but otherwise it was very good if not diet wise. I kike the chicken burritos the best of the "famous taster" that I ordered.

just outside of Augusta there's a nice little restaurant called Slates where you can get a good cup of coffee, read a book and meet and see some nice people. That's in Hallowell, on your way to Gardiner. The Barnes and Noble superbookstore up by the Civic Center is okay, too.
