The Red Chair took a break from its coastal route and traveled west towards the Appalachian Mountains, the town of Bethel and The Briar Lea Inn. The Chair visited beautiful local sights including the Screw Auger Falls, Maine's most famous road sign at the junction of Route 35 and 5, and of course the Androscoggin River.
Maine Stay Inn, Kennebunkport is a great place to escape the summer heat and enjoy all that coastal Maine has to offer -- fine dining, great history, and sweeping vistas of the rocky northern Atlantic coast. The cool air that drifts off Maine's chilly waters rocked our Red Chair to sleep at night, and when the fog burnt off in the morning, the chair was able to explore the area -- thanks to the help of friends Julie and Walter Hauer at the Maine Stay!
Great photos were captured in Newcastle and Damariscotta by Newcastle Inn. Also by a young local, Jordyn Danielson -- who heard about the chair's visit -- offered up her talent, producing several of these photos. The first use of perspective with the chair in hand -- a shout out to Jordyn for that original twist!
The Red Chair had a great time with the Historic Inns of Rockland in Rockland, Maine. As well as taking in the beautiful architecture of Rockland's inns, the Red Chair also enjoyed time on the water, by beach, and out on the famous Rockland light pier -- a great summer stroll.
Check out the adventurous photos of the Red Chair exploring the outdoors of Camden, Maine and the Inns at Blackberry Common. Hiking down to the water and up to Mt. Battie? Fighting off a dragon? This chair is going to need some serious R&R. Lucky there are some beautiful restful places ahead...
The Red Chair enjoyed some time in Camden Maine visiting with the Camden Maine Stay Inn. The Chair loved the serenity of the town and the beauty of the harbor and of West Penobscot Bay.
This photo essay illustrates the Red Chair's journey to Moosehead Lake and the Blair Hill Inn. The Chair experienced the beauty and serenity of the lake and surrounding mountains; boating, canoeing, and exploring. Hope you Enjoy!
In Bar Harbor, the Red Chair was shown around by the Inn at Bay Ledge. The Chair set off on all kinds of adventures; it went lobstering, ate at the famous Jordans, took in some great views of Frenchman's Bay, explored Acadia National Park and climbed to the top of Cadillac Mountain!
