Flander's Lane, Washington Maine

Flander's Lane is named after my grandfather, Roland Flanders. It is a short dirt road with a few camps set on Washington Pond. There are tales that Flander's Lane is haunted. At least that's what my grandfather says.

Camden Maine

Mount BattieCamden is an interesting bay side New England town. The Megunticook river goes under the town where it heads out to sea. Here in this photo taken from Camden's public landing, one can see the river rapids. In the middle of photo is a church, Camden Library, and Mount Battie. I took a little video from this spot to show you more of the bay and surrounding area. Camden has the views.Camden Maine
Here is downtown Camden. The whole village is built on a dock, and the river goes under it. There is an old waterwheel building here that once was a shirt factory.
The weather has been below freezing point for a few weeks now. It already feels like it's been a long winter... and it hasn't even started yet.

I've been looking for pictures where the river comes out from under the town, and this is the best I've seen so far! We visited on our honeymoon back in '04 and had lunch in the deli where the river comes out from under it - we thought it was the coolest thing! Thanks for posting the pictures - I wish we could find the ones we took from the deli!

I found your blog last winter when I googled Washington, ME, and found it to be a wonderful reminiscence of my days growing up: paddling on the calm lake (we called it Medomak then), swimming with the fish, etc. My sister and I swam with your Mom and aunt. I was equally thrilled to see the photo of Roland. Please tell them Pat from the house up on the hill says hello. I'm in MN and miss Maine, getting back about once every three years. I haven't seen anything recent; please keep writing through your daughter's eyes. It's good stuff!
