Hi Gretchen...This is exactly what I was planning to do...drive up the coast and check out the nooks and crannies I find along the way!  I hope the "Maine-ahs" have a big welcome for us when we arrive in Bar Harbor...that will be lots of fun!  We'll have to meet up on the MoBo and talk some more about my after-cruise adventure!

I'm on the MoBo cruise!  I booked onboard the 40th anniversary cruise.  I thought, "I can drive to Montreal or Boston easily, but I want to take this trip with the Olivia crowd!" (the 40th anniversary cruise was my first Olivia trip)  

I was born and grew up in Maine, and I still have family in the Portland area.  If you plan to drive up the coast, you'll head north from Boston on I-95, continue briefly through New Hampshire, then pick up US Route 1 in Kittery, Maine.  Ogunquit is a short distance up the coast from Kittery.  From there, you can expect about a 30 or 45 minute trip to Portland using the coastal route (Route 1).  It's really scenic, and you'll find a lot of interesting spots to check out on the way.  PLENTY of lobster!  In May, the traffic should not be bad.  

Portland itself is a very interesting city, but you'll also get an excellent "flavor" of the Maine Coast when the cruise ship docks in Bar Harbor.  I overhead some "Maine-ahs" on the 40th anniversary cruise talking about planning a big welcome in Bar Harbor for the Olivia Ship!  But if you have the time to spend a day or so poking around Portland, you won't regret it.  There is a substantial lesbian/gay community in Portland, though I don't believe Portland has quite the same cachet as Ogunquit.

Hi...Not sure if we met on the 40th either!  This sounds like an excellent plan!  How far north of Ogunquit is Portland?  I've never been to Maine, so this will be a fun adventure!  So, will you be on the MoBo Cruise, too?

Hey, Malinda,

Can't remember if we met in the solo's group on the second 40th anniversary cruise.  Anyway, I'll be living in Portland, ME, by the time the MoBo trip departs.  So if you drive up a bit farther than Ogunquit, you can visit me and eat lobstah

I'm thinking of extending our MoBo adventure by renting a car and driving up the coast after disembarking in Boston.  Plan to go north at least to Ogunquit, Maine, for breakfast at Amore Breakfast, and then some relaxed sight-seeing and, of course, some more lobstah...Maine Lobstah!!  Anyone want to think about joining in on this fun adventure?
