We woke up early Sunday morning to head out on an adventure. We headed to Yarmouth, Maine to the DeLorme Map Store. Why is this exciting (beyond looking at a whole bunch of beautiful maps and other fun stuff)? Because The Map Store is the home to the world's largest rotating globe. She is magnificent and her name is Eartha.
Eartha lives one hour from our home and we have driven by her many times. We have been in awe of her beauty as we pass by her while driving on the highway, but for some reason we had never stopped. Today that changed. Today, Eartha was not just something we drove by but an adventure that we drove to.
She is housed in a room surrounded by windows, so before we even went in to really see her in all of her glory, I posed my kids in front of her windows and snapped a photo.
Can you see how big she is?!?!?

If you live near Eartha and you drive by her often as we did, for goodness sake, stop and see her next time you're passing through Yarmouth!
