Yesterday Gus and I Adventured to the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine. The Seashore Trolley Museum is the first, and also the largest electric railway museum in the world. It provides guests information on the role that transportation has played throughout history. The campus includes three buildings of trolley cars and other artifacts, a vintage trolley ride, and a store. The entire museum is dog friendly.
We had a unique Adventure to the Seashore Trolley Museum. I decided to take Gus on his own Adventures yesterday, while Wilma was relaxing at Grandma and Grandpa’s spa! I feel this is important for him to increase his independence as he is much more comfortable when Wilma is by his side. I was not sure what to expect but was excited to visit the Museum. We started walking around the outside of the museum before going in to purchase a ticket. We walked to all of the carhouses to see what we could find. Gus loved eating grass and anything he could find. He continued to be nervous with others around him but did well sitting, and became more comfortable over time. I was not sure that we would be able to ride the trolley, but thought I would try, and get off before it left if he seemed uneasy. I decided to start with him on my lap, which he loved, and was perfectly comfortable throughout the ride. We learned about the history of transportation and enjoyed the cool breeze coming in the windows. Near the end Gus got down on the floor, and took some time to cuddle next to me on the seat. I have always wanted to check out this vintage trolley ride so was thrilled that it was a success. Definitely an unusual and fun dog-friendly activity. So glad we could visit the Seashore Trolley Museum (Rating: 3).
More lounging at Grandma and Grandpa’s Spa!
