Welcome to Our Day...
Last night we slept with the windows open...and this morning, the first ray of light came peeking in at 4:32 am. Not only had the light found it's way in, so had the cool morning breeze...53 degrees to be exact. I tried pulling the covers up over my head to not only block out the light, but to keep my nose warm. Then it wasn't long that the Loons started to sing. Even with all of that, we managed to stay in bed until a little before 7:00.
After breakfast...we gathered cameras and maps and headed south. We visited the little town of
walked by the harbor,
smelled the beautiful flowers, and
shopped up and down all the streets.
We found this great little bakery with lots of
yummy pastries. We decided on a raspberry Danish that we shared.
As we made our way back to the car, we passed by
this restaurant. It isn't going to be long until
these guys will be on someone's lunch plate.
From Camden, we made our way towards Union by
way of this country road and this
scenic byway. It was a beautiful drive and I was on a mission.
While in Winterport, we picked up some wine for Molly. However, they were out of the Cranberry Wine she wanted. So, today while shopping in Camden, I heard about this
little winery in Union. So, off we went...and Molly,
you now have Cranberry Wine. I even watched them
put it in the bottle!
Next on my list was to find a lighthouse that we were suppose to be able to see from the
Rockport Harbor. We had to look, but we finally
We had now worked our way several miles down south and it was getting to be mid-afternoon. We decided that with all the shopping and walking we had done, that there were no if's, and's, or but's...it was time to
eat...no matter how you looked at it!
We had already made up our mind that we were going to a restaurant in Searsport that Darrell had recommended. So, we slowly made our way back through
the small towns and the
beautiful country side.
We reached Searsport and the Angler's Seafood Restaurant around 4:00. We shared a yummy seafood sampler plate. Thanks again Darrell for another good tip.
Before heading back to the campground, we drove down to the Belfast Harbor and took a walk on the
pedestrian bridge across the bay.
Once back at the campground, we enjoyed a walk down to the beach which was a great way to finish off a fun day.
