Last week we decided to take a drive up to Belfast, Maine for lunch. Here are some images.
Stopped in Wiscasset, Maine for a potty break at the boat launch. The famous Red's Eats wasn't even open for business yet. (When we left, after strolling around a bit, there was a line at Red's Eats, 30 minutes before they opened at 11:30 am)
Mr. Downeastdoingstuff, aka Birdman, lingered here....
Finally arrived at the historic, waterfront village of Belfast.
Had to stop at Perry's Nut House. (Some think Mr. Downeastdoingstuff aka Birdman was born here. I can attest to the fact that he was not. Wishes he was, but he wasn't)
I stopped here over 25 years ago on my way back from a workshop at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle and bought a pair of gold sanddollar shaped earrings, my favorite. After a while, the 'gold' wore off and I had to discard them. Hoped to replace them, but the inside of Perry's Nut House was not as I remembered it. Plastic lobsters and dog poop, magic tricks, and, of course, NUTS, (They are big on nuts, it would make any man green with envy)
but no jewelry.
I need to find a better source for my fine jewelry.
Stopped at Camden Harbor for supper.
The weather was around 80, sunny and breezy. A perfect day with my sweet Birdman.
