One Day In Maine——–And the next day—

For this short get away in early August, we had one day to explore and take a look at the grand coast line harbors of this beautiful state. I must say we made the most of it, and I will give you a glimpse of what we saw. As we approached Belfast, the location of our hotel, I snapped this picture from the window of the van as we were moving along at 40 mph. We were anxious to arrive after our 12 hour drive from Pennsylvania.

This was evening and after a good nights sleep, we were up and ready to see what else Maine had to offer for the rest of the day.  We were not disappointed.

First stop, Mt. Battie.  A long up hill walk, or (we chose option B) a short drive to the top gave us lots of picturesque views.  Here is a look at the same harbor from a way different angel. It was an overcast day,

But we took the moment to enjoy being with each other and relax, surrounded by beauty.

Next stop, the summer cottage of our friends, and a chance to pick up a few more people before heading out to lunch

After eating we were enjoying this walk, not too long, not to steep.

Our reward was to climb the stairs to this lovely old lighthouse.

I love sailboat views.

Then on to the delights of Camden.

It was fun watching my grandson, play with the camera and the ducks.

We finished out that day with a delightful meal at the Waterfront Restaurant enjoying a variety of scrumptious sea food.  While in Maine, I ate seafood in various types and amounts that included, haddock, shrimp, tuna, crab, clams, muscles and of course lobster.  I also ingested enough butter to slide off a mountain. All in all the day was a joy to spend with family and friends that were soon to become family.

That’s why we were in Maine for one short weekend with two long drives.
