Toller Ausflug an die Küste Maines mit etlichen (Foto-) Stopps und Zeit zur freien Verfügung in dem malerischen Ort Kennebunkport (für den es zum Einkaufen/Essen für einige Läden eine Rabattkarte gab und am Ende noch eine Trolley Tour mit viel Gossip über die Bush-Familie, die hier immer Ferien gemacht hat). Toll war auch die Fahrerin Lucia, die mit ihren Kommentaren (vor allem im Stau der Rushhour in Boston) Stand Up-Potenzial hatte. Ein unvergesslicher Tag, der jeden Cent wert war!

Lucia was very funny, engaging and informative. Before any questions were asked she answered them! She was always smiling and courteous to a lady needing a Walker and to our two. 6 year old grandsons.
