Maine coast helicopter photo series: Portland to Freeport

Seventh of a series… near the peak of foliage season (mid-October) we decided to fly from Boston to Bar Harbor, Maine, following the shoreline, in a Robinson R44 helicopter. Tony Cammarata was in back with a door removed (frosty!) and a Nikon D850. Instrument student Vince Dorow was with me in the front seats.

From just north of Portland, Maine to the shopping Mecca of Freeport:

LL Bean, which closed during the March 2020 coronapanic for the first time in its history (since opening in 1912, it had never previously been closed for more than 24 hours), is back up and running.

  1. Being somewhat naive about the weather, what do people do with their boats in the winter, or do the bays/inlets stay ice-free?

    Never seen an aerial of LL Bean, very cool. That’s quite a stretch of time to be open, wow. I remember many years ago as a kid when my father and I ordered the ‘classic’ LL Bean boots (paper catalog, check in the mail, etc), and how well made they were.

  2. I applauded your choices for the background music in the video. I’m viewing these photos today and I can’t stop thinking of this song, for so many reasons. It’s very sad.
