Oh the Air show - I know a couple of other cachers who will be there. Steve McCausland of Maine SP posted to our group the following:
"Since this is the last time the Blue Angels in appear in Maine, here are two great vantage spots to watch the show without going on the Navy Base. If you want to spend the day on the base it is well worth it, but the traffic to and from is huge. Although the times of the flights are not announced, typically the Blues are the last event of the day, Saturday from 3 to 4 PM and Sunday from 2:30 to 3:30 PM. If you have never seen the show, drive to Brunswick-Topsham Saturday or Sunday to view it. Sunday is likely to be the better of the two days for weather. As a long time Brunswick resident, here is where I've watched them in the past---
1 -- Park at the end of Water Street in Brunswick and walk along the the bike path . Water Street is off Mason Street, which is the first left after driving across the bridge into downtown Brunswick.
2-- Park at the Topsham Fairgrounds on Elm Street and watch the show from there. The fairgrounds on Elm St. is a left hand turn from a traffic light on Main St., Topsham, just after the Dairy Queen.
Both locations are also an easy walk to the new Merrymeeting Bridge between Topsham and Brunswick, which has a very wide sidewalk and a great vista for the show.
Also for those who may know their way around Brunswick, the new Mere Point Road Boat Launch would also be a unique place to watch the show. Mere Point Road is about a mile past Bowdoin College on Maine Street. The new boat launch, which opened last month, is about seven miles down Mere Point Road. ENJOY !"
Is there a cache at the boat launch yet?? LOL
