Oceanfront Property

Today was a travel day.  We were up early and while Mark was busy hooking up the Jeep and taking care of all the outside jobs, I was putting away the last of the inside items.  By 10:30, we were ready to move to the Moorings RV Park in Belfast...there was no need to hurry, we were just going

Belfast, ME 007

34 miles down the road.  Wow, this is my kind of travel day.

But, what a move...from the pumpkin patch field to

ocean front property.

The sites here by the water are 30 amp and no sewer, but they are great sites.  What a view of the

  Just a few feet away from the motor home are the

steps that take you down to the beach.  And, that is where I headed just as soon as my little feet would take me there.

The tide was in so, there wasn't much beach to walk on, so, I just enjoyed sitting

on the rocks.  It wasn't long before I was joined by

this little guy.  He hung out with me for a long time and both enjoyed just sitting by the

water.

A little later in the afternoon, Mark and I made a trip into the quaint little town of

Belfast, ME 058

Belfast.  We enjoyed just walking the streets and looking in the

little shops and the

decorations that lined the streets.

We made a stop by the local

hardware store.  This store is owned by Darrell Patterson's aunt.  Darrell, we stopped in to meet your aunt, but she had just stepped out for awhile.  We did meet a young lady that told us she went to high school with you.  She however, wouldn't share any stories!

There is a nice walking tour you can take through town and all along the way you see these

markers explaining a little history of Belfast.  This one explains about the shoe industry that was started here in Belfast.

We then made a quick stop by the post office and the grocery store before heading back to the RV Park.

This evening, we made homemade grilled chicken sandwiches.  Afterwards, we headed out for a walk on the beach.

With the tide out, there was

now lots of beach to walk on.  What a difference from this morning.  We walked

out a long way and up and down the beach a good way.

We saw

a crab that the tide left behind,

a sea gull enjoying the cool evening,

giant rocks that will be almost covered up when the tide comes back in, and

a beautiful close to yet another amazing day.

We are so blessed!

  5. Whew, I lucked out. The stories of my might not have been as pretty as I would have liked.

    Yes, Belfast has a lot of charm now but, when I was growing up (never did grow up) there you would never go near the waterfront. Belfast was a factory town with two shoe factory, a pants factory, two poultry plants, a sardine factory, and a mill all on or near the waterfront - the bay was poluted. What a transformation the city has made.

    By the way, another of my aunts was the City Manager for many years so our family has had quite an impact on that city. My brother still lives in the house the dad and mom bought back in 1949.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures; brings back fond memories.
