Day 14 - Whately to Wells, ME

We slowly got ourselves going to get packed up and ready to depart for Wells. Maureen ran off to see Grandpa Ed to say goodbye. He had been a little short-changed but not for lack of trying.

With the 11AM checkout time approaching, Angus and I got the RV organized and went for a walk. Maureen returned, we hooked up and were on our way for the last leg.

We chose to take I91 to Greenfield and then take Route 2/202 east through northern Massachusetts. For much of the way, this is a 2 lane country road through some beautiful, typical New England countryside.

We then got on I495 and headed northeast into New Hampshire and soon thereafter, we crossed into Maine. Wells is only about 20 miles from the New Hampshire border.

We arrived at Wells Beach Resort at 3:30 and we directed to a back-in on “5th Avenue”. This spot, site 27, put us next to Bobby Poirier, a seasonal resident, Don and Fran Clark, full-timers and fellow workampers. Across from us are Marion (a guy) from Hatfield and a friend a Grandpa Ed and Mike and Donna Groton, 8th year Wells Beach Resort workampers from Tuscon, AZ.

Shirley Griffin (the owner) got us situated and we set up for our 6 month stay. We spent a little extra time on leveling. This is usually something we make a quick best effort on but when the duration is going to be relatively long term, it is important to get as right as possible. We managed to get it dead-on-balls accurate.

We have a bit organizing to do but nothing urgent. We did run over to the grocery store (Hannafords). This is 1/2 mile (not 40 like Alaska) away. We’ll describe the Resort in detail as we become familiar with it. But we’ve got to tell you that the facility is gorgeous and worthy of the term Resort. And worthy of being chosen as one of the top 300 RV parks in the country.
