Our First Few Days in Maine

Friday June 24th we drove up to Ogunquit, Maine where we spent the night at the Admiral's Inn.  We spent the day walking around this quaint touristy town, checking out the shops.  

Kelly took this colorful shot of some beautiful landscaping.

Saturday morning we met Gary & Deb Winslow and their children Everett & Cora for breakfast.  Dave used to work with Gary & Deb in Antarctica.  They drove all the way over from Vermont to visit us.

Saturday after we meet the Gilbert's and the Keller's in Bath, ME where we did the bulk of our shopping for the week.  Here's Spenser with a handful of Humpty Dumpty BBQ Potato Chips.  We all absolutely love these!!!

John, Delaney and Spenser in the parking lot at Shaw's where we met and got our groceries.

After shopping we all drove out to the cabin.  John's Grandparents built this cabin in the 50's, which is on Georgetown Island about a 45 minute drive up the coast from Bath.

We were greeted by this seal who was swimming around in front of the cabin.

We enjoyed playing allot of Backgammon, Cribbage and Euchre during the week.

Mossy rocks near the beach.

Lichen on the rocks.

The geology near the cabin is really interesting.  There are so many striations of different type of rock as shown in this photo of Dave.

Kelly proposed that we all create something artistic which represents Maine during our visit and that we present them on Friday night.  Here Cindy, Delaney and Spenser are gathering potential art pieces on the beach.

Delaney found a bunch of buoys lodged in the rocks.

Sunday night we went to Five Islands Lobster Co. where we bought hard shelled lobsters for dinner.

John, Kelly & Brad getting our lobster.

Here's John plating up the lobster.

Brad with his enormous lobster!

Spenser enjoyed lobster for the first time,

After five days of rainy overcast weather since arriving out east, we were very happy to awake to a sunny day on Monday.  Here you can see the Keller's cabin as it's perched on the rocks above the ocean.
