Maine Event Fun and Food

It was a little before 7 am when I realized that the morning light was filtering its way through the window.

Soon everyone was up and doing their own thing.  We had no real plan until around noon.

By the time I got back from my walk, Darrell was busy

getting the lobster ready for tonight's dinner.

Mike and Peggy arrived at the campground by noon.  By this time, we were all ready to head out for an afternoon drive.

We first stopped at
