Michael and Andrea departed this morning to visit friends in Maine, so Susan and Tim ventured off to Boothbay. The local arts & craft fair was going on at the library and the day was beautiful. So, off we went. We found a great parking spot for the truck near the fair and ventured over. It was local artists with weaving, candles, and jewelry--we just shopped. Then into and out of several shops and across the foot bridge to East Boothbay for lunch. We had lunch at the Lobster Dock that is locally famous because Bobby Flay of the Food Channel had a "throw down" with the owner. The seafood was really good--as they say--don't eat seafood unless you can see the water it came from! We sure could because the bay was about 100 feet away! So after lunch we crossed the bridge and picked up a few items that will remind us of Maine--lobster trap buoys--very colorful. Back at the arts & craft fair, there was music--so it was time to relax under a nice tree and enjoy local Maine folk music. It was great--I recorded a short portion with my camera. Finally it was early afternoon--time to head back toward the RV park. We stopped at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens--it was worth the stop. Many flowers were still blooming and their tomatoes were just turning pink. I talked to a staff member about growing 2 crops of tomatoes in San Antonio--I am not sure that she believed me. So after nice day out seeing the sights, back to the RV. Susan watched the US Open Tennis and Tim roasted some coffee.
