In the morning, before hitting the highway north, we took a short drive to Old Orchard Beach which was a ghost town, nothing open. Would like to spend a few days exploring this area sometime.

|Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory|
We took Hwy 95 through the capitol of Maine, Augusta, and then cut over to the scenic route through central coast Maine. Glad we went this way - there were several interesting stops along the way, including the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory, the tallest bridge observatory in the world and the only one in the U.S. Interesting tidbit: the design of the two bridge towers may be familiar because it was copied from the Washington Monument, which was built using granite from this area.
