Notes taken from History Channel Special about the state of Maine (will be useful for my scrapbook):
“A galaxy of color” created every year with the changing of the leaves.
First Lighthouse-Portland Maine Lighthouse (visited by my mother and me in October of last year)
“The pine tree state”-98% covered by forest
Lobster-has to be a minimum of 31/4 measurement from tailpin to back
More than 50 million pounds of lobster caught off of the Maine coast per year.
Original L.L. Bean flyer in 1912 with a hunting shoe created by Freeport. The store is open 365 days of the year.
