Have you noticed how certain searches on Google bring back a map and from one to three local listings?
This is Google's "Local Search", which ties in Google Maps with your search term. As a result, any time you search a location (like "Freeport, Maine") with a business type (like "Bed & Breakfast") you will get this type of result. Where do the listings come from? Good question...
As part of Freeport's July 4th celebration activities, L.L. Bean hosted the dedication of the new Village Park, in Freeport. The park features hiking trails, nature walks, a pavillion and space to picnic, play or just relax.
Digging around the internet for 4th of July information, I came across the following. Hope you enjoy it!
What July Fourth Means to Me
For one who was born and grew up in the small towns of the Midwest, there is a special kind of nostalgia about the Fourth of July. I remember it as a day almost as long-anticipated as Christmas. This was helped along by the appearance in store windows of all kinds of fireworks and colorful posters advertising them with vivid pictures.
Ruth and I love to sail, though we've never owned a boat (we have thought a lot about it...). We haven't done much sailing in several years, but we had some wonderful opportunities last week, while our daughter, Pam, was visiting. On Tuesday we took a two-hour sail on the 1912 yacht Wendameen, a Maine-built, John Alden designed schooner, operated by Portland Schooner Company.We embarked from the Old Port and hoisted sail.
