I just got to Maine for my last in person trip to each city before this summer’s Great Race. Almost all of the snow is gone and the locals have come out of their long hibernation. Everyone I meet here says it was the most brutal winter they can remember, but they are now looking forward to the start of the Great Race.
Ogunquit will be the smallest city to ever host the start of the Great Race so everyone in town is pitching in. The photo above is the Beachmere, and the opening banquet will be held on the front lawn overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, June 20.
Tomorrow it’s on to Lowell, Massachusetts.
