A Mission to Freeport, Maine
I made it a point to visit Freeport on my trip downstate Maine because it was one of the few Starbucks in the State and I haven't had a cup in over a week. While there I had to check out the L.L. Bean flagship 24 hour store which is really more of a mall. The large "Bean Boot" outside the entrance represents Leon Leonwood Bean's first product which he created which the store was built on. The store itself was pretty interesting- it had a live trout pond in the center with large glass aquarium walls and the stairs rising above it- pretty entertaining, I now think every store should have live trout. After a quick look through the store I headed out because a major storm was overhead and I wanted to check out some of the art scene down in Portland.
