    Augusta, Camden & Penobscot Bay

    June 17, 2017 in the United States

    Breakfast was a bit chaotic, with quite a few families, part of some kids sports team. No tables when I arrived, but I bagged one fairly soon. The tables are all big round affairs which would seat 5 each. So once one person sits at a table, it's gone. I spread out. As it happened there were only two chairs at my table, so no takers until my travelling companion arrived.
    Breakfast was ok but disappointed with the fruit and lack of English muffins.
    Headed to the State Capitol in Augusta. The state museum is next door. Very good exhibits, well designed and informative. Some are quite detailed for the casual visitor. Still it was well worth the $4 admission for us both. That, of course was after the $2 senior discount!
    Next, the downtown, waterfront, historic Augusta. This makes Limerick look like Paris. Lots of unoccupied shops. we balked at the $8 p.p. Admission (net of senior discount, of course. The only basis on which I engage) to a recreated fort. Augusta is not glamorous.
    Onwards eastwards towards Camden and Penobscot Bay. Along the way we passed miles of houses many of which had junk scattered about. Looked poor.
    Camden is lovely. A narrow cove with a smallish number of boats, some quite large. Nice views from the town which is a nice stroll. Touristy shops and a few restaurants. Some classy houses too.
    We dined at the Sea Dog Brewery, out on the rear deck looking over the ha-bah. A pint of stout was my first drink since the plane. Discovered that there is a branch in our next port of call. Took a walk afterwards down by the quayside and saw the waterfall which runs under one of the other premises' deck. Camden gets added to the Essex-Wickford-Marblehead list of towns worth seeing. But it is the most remote of all three.
    Returned to Augusta via Belfast. Looking at hotel, might have been better to have stayed 2 nights in Brunswick.......VLL, but won't be in Maine again to benefit from the lesson.

    Rockland, Maine

    July 29, 2017 in the United States

    We arrived in Rockland around 11:00am. This sleepy town is well-known for its quaint boutiques and art galleries. We did check out one of the other big attractions, the Project Puffin Visitor Center. This was a small museum that gives you a quick lesson on Maine’s endangered sea birds.

    We grabbed lunch at the Brass Compass Cafe, home to the famous Lobster Club Sandwich! The Bobby Flay Throwdow Winner was a must-try for Rick!

    We were in no hurry to get to our next destination so decided to explore the beach. We spent over an hour searching for sea glass and enjoying the sunshine. The Maine coastline is beautiful!
