Summer fun with friends

September 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

We had a passel of visitors in August and early September, so I haven’t had much time to blog about our adventures. Here is a quick photo round up of our visits with Shelley, Mike, and Mari; Tom, Sandy, and Belinda; and Steve and Christine. In that order.

Our visit with Shelley, Mike, and Mari included a trip to Damariscotta and the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and a day at the beach at Reid State Park.

The beach at Pemaquid Point was filled with rock sculptures.

When Tom and Sandy arrived just a few days later, we decided to head back to Damariscotta and Pemaquid.

Sadly, all the rock sculptures were gone.

One day we had lunch at the Osprey Restaurant at Robinhood Cove Marina in Georgetown. We almost lost Tom to an unfortunate hook accident.

Of course, once Belinda arrived later in the week, the drinking began in earnest.

How many times have we eaten at the dock? I’ve lost count.

And then Steve and Christine arrived and it was time to head back to the dock. Gosh, what to order . . .

We squeezed in some culture–Edward Hopper exhibit at Bowdoin–and a wonderful sailing trip out of Baileys Island on the Harpswell Peninsula.

I believe a good time was had by all. We certainly loved having all of our friends visit us in our new home. Thanks everybody for the great times!
