I live in Stockton Springs, it seems no one knows where that is!  I know exactley where Belfast is though, I work there!:)

You mean Stockton Stinks? Wink I lived in Frankfort for 11 years, and everyone chanted "Frankfort, Searsport, Stockton Stinks!" I believe it was also turned around to "Frankfart, Searsgas, Stockton Springs". Ooh, clever children, indeed.

I've never heard that!  How long ago was it that you lived in Frankfort?  And indeed, Stockton does stink!

My dad still lives there, but my mom moved first to Swanville, then to Searsport, and now to Belfast so the last time I lived full-time in Frankfort was when I was 14, or 11 years ago.

I'm from the Bangor area, but most of the year I'm in Brunswick, at Bowdoin College.

Hey, I was in Brunswick yesterday!  My husband and I took all 4 of our kids to Reid State Park.  It was absolutely beautiful up there, and we drove back through Brunswick.    I would love to live somewhere like that - I love all of the little shops along the main street.  Norway has it in miniature - I love Pickalilly and the Irish Ewe (LYS), but the rest of it is just kind of like, whatever.  lol

I was at Reid State Park yesterday, too!
It was lovely and warm for the first part of the afternoon. We went to the second beach where it's never as crowded.
I don't know what was up with those horseflies, though. So many!

No kidding!! Those horseflies were brutal!!!  I ended up taking the baby to the van around 3, to let him get a nap.  I got to sit in AC and knit while my husband dealt with the flies.  lol  We were at Griffith beach (?) - the waves were great, but the kids were having some trouble, so we ended up taking them to the lagoon.  I'd never been there before, it was absolutely beautiful!

Maine Craftsters Unite! Hehe.
I was born in Augusta, and grew up in Bangor where I still currently live.  I go to UMaine Orono.  Its definitly a party campus (I just don't go to them).  Someone mentioned Orono being boring (and I'll admit that if I had to live there, I wouldn't be happy) but it does have its up points.  Like chalking the campus sidewalks, thats a fun time.
I'm dying to travel, but I honestly can't picture living anywhere but Maine.  Everywhere else has things like poisonous snakes, or just cruddy landscaping.  I love me some nature.  So long as it doesn't bite me...  Cheesy
I know this is an older post, but I was hoping someone might lead me in the direction of a nice non-retail yarn or bead shoppe in the Bangor area.  I'm also wicked interested in learning about metal forging.
PS- Anyone want gorgeus scenery?  Check out Brooksville, Maine.  Folloe Route 15 South of Bangor, and its between Blue Hill and Stonington.

Hey thebrutalbamf, I live in Bangor too. Have you been to City Side Yarn? They're pretty cool - it's on the Odlin Rd. Unfortunately I haven't had much luck finding other crafty shops Sad
Metal forging sounds really interesting! I've always wanted to learn how to make silver jewelry; this area just doesn't seem to be very conducive to learning new crafts. I think I'm going to experiment with resin for the first time tonight if I can muster the courage...
Let me know if you discover any crafty goodness around here!

City Side Yarn...?  I haven't heard of it, but I'll definitly be checking it out.  Thanks a bunch for that, its so hard to find a decent craft store when you know Jo Ann's and AC Moore won't cut it.  Good luck with that resin, I haven't gotten to use it yet myself, but it looks like it has some great projects.  If I discover anything crafty in the area I'll post back.   Smiley
