|Parked at a friends for the summer|
Dirt roads, tar roads, dirt to tar to dirt roads. Trees, lots & lots of trees of all types. A very green land. Farms, dairies, farmers markets & homesteads.
Book stores, used book stores all over the place!
I've been places where there are no book stores & that's not here!
|The road to our friend's house|
|There were several farmers markets|
I have never seen such a small place with so much to do every day, the local free papers had numerous activities listed for every day during the summer.
The harbor. Just a beautiful place full of sailboats, I don't remember ever seeing this many twin masted sailboats in one place before.
|Boats tied off to buoys in the harbor|
|A lot of sail boats|
There is a walkway along the shore and there is a foot bridge over the bay that used to be a train track.
|The foot bridge ran where the RR tracks used to be|
|The foot bridge can open for boats|
|The ship yard tour was a good one.|
We went inside the huge boat shops too.
There is a thriving downtown with book shops, bike shops, art shops, bakery & places to eat.
|There were several streets and they were all active|
And the lobsters! Can't forget the lobsters...
|Right on the water|
|Good eats here!|
|At the grocery store ...|
this was the day after the prices went up
|Our dinner one night, $18 & they were steamed|
before we took them home
|At home, ready to be cleaned & eaten|
We ate them on a lobster roll.
I didn't know what a lobster roll was until we stopped at a roadside stand. Lobster meat on a hot dog bun with melted butter. Spendy but good!
We also had a boiled lobster dinner for two at a seaside restaurant near Rockland.
