If you ever get up to central Maine, head on in to Skowhegan and get yourself to Gifford’s Ice Cream. It is well worth the trip. This is where to get yourself an absolutely gigantic milkshake, or as the locals call them “frappes.” It’s been a family tradition for Barb to hit this spot on vacations. You know you want one.
And while you are there, stick around for the sunsets. They pretty much always look that way in Maine. Be sure to stop at Robbins Hill Scenic Lookout, near Solon.
