Hey Everyone! This is Chet, reporting from Portland, Maine. I arrived here last week, to the offices of Stenhouse Publishers. I was greeted by some nice people who publish books for teachers, but unfortunately they put me to work immediately.
Check out the photos of me working hard and attending important meetings.
During the weekend I did get to travel around Portland and make some new friends. I visited Kettle Cove beach, where I saw some fishing boats on the water, along with lobster traps. I also went to Portland Head Light - look at that view behind me! The lighthouse is 80-feet tall and George Washington ordered it to be built in 1791.
After all the sightseeing, we had some lunch and I made friends with this huge lobster! He was friendly – even put his claw around me. I also met some other bears in Maine.
Later this week I am going to visit a newspaper near Portland and see their big printing presses. Should be pretty exciting!
