Night on the town…

September 30, 2006

Last night we went to Portland just to get away for a bit. It’s only an hour away, but it feels like a different world. There are things to do and places to go in Portland. Here in Belgrade, you have to make your own entertainment.

Sometimes, I miss living in a more metropolitan area, but not often. I had fun last night, but after a few hours I began to get nervous. Too  many people, bad driving, badly laid out streets. (The downtown area is beautiful, but not always logical in it’s layout.) I was glad to get home and relax.

Don’t get me wrong, Portland is a great place to visit. I look forward to finally being able to take a long walk around the downtown area. Several factors keep us from doing this right now, mainly health issues but we’re working on that. Also, the few times we’ve gone to Portland just to walk around, it has always started raining.

In many ways, Maine lives up to its motto ‘a great place to live.’ It’s a place where you can be seemingly out in the middle of nowhere, but after only an hour’s drive be in a heavy populated place with plenty of activities and excitement.
