Maine...

Entering the harbour at Cape Porpoise 
was the introduction to us at to how many lobster pots 
we were really going to have to navigate around in Maine!

Going ashore we had lunch at a very quaint restaurant (decorated with buoys)

 with all of these posters over the ceilings and walls.

We arrived in Rockland and celebrated my birthday,
Richard had decorated Our Rose with balloons all over…


He brought me a bag of presses to open in bed, 
 with a glass of something special, and some cookies with a candle and marshmallow.

In the afternoon Beryl arrived...

she had come up to join us for 5 nights.

We had a lovely time, exploring Rockland together
enjoying winerys, gardens




The Rockland Lobster Festival was fun…

 With a great parade...






Richard even found an appropriate beer...

We met Mary Ann and her husband David.
Mary Ann does the most beautiful weaving…  She is also an absolutely beautiful person...

Mary Ann and David invited us into their garden to talk 
and she insisted on "giving" us two of her beautiful placements - what amazing generosity!


We went for a walk along the granite breakwater to "Breakwater Lighthouse"
Beryl flew back to Nashville the day the festival finished.
Richard and I went to see the "lobster crate" race 
People ran from one end to the next until they fell off - great fun…


What a beautiful sunset in Rockland…
