A visit to Maine means waking to invigorating morning temps laced with balsam fir and sea breezes, picking blueberries on the hills covered with the berry bushes, eating fresh lobsters at the seaside pounds, and just feeling refreshed with the bright and lovely skies.
Looking out over the many vistas around Penobscot Bay, where flowers bloom abundantly and the loons and gulls drift over the water just makes you want to stay forever.....well, maybe not forever, but at least for a while longer.....as long as there is no SNOW in the forecast!!

And then there are Lobster Bakes........and the one at Searsport Shores Campground is amazing!We met Jeff and Neal, and Jeff's Mom and Step-Dad, Doris and Ron at Searsport Shores and have been sharing some wicked - good meals! The Lobster bake on Saturday night left us all stuffed full of Lobsters, Mussels, steamers (clams), steamed corn, potatoes, onions, homemade rolls, and even a huge blueberry-peach cobbler cooked in the biggest DutchOven we've ever seen in the hot coals!!

There have also been several visits to Young's Lobster pound, to select Lobsters, Mussells, and Steamers from their tanks in the pound, and watch them steam the seafood in their huge vats.......
