MAINE: Boothbay Harbor, East Boothbay and Southport

JUNE 2012: We wind up our fantastic week in the Boothbay area today, heading up now to Bar Harbor. We had spectacular weather here, mostly glorious blue sky days with the sun sparkling on the sea. Just what you hope for - and rarely get! It doesn't look as promising up in Bar Harbor, but we feel that our time here was very blessed. We got to see our artist friends Jan Kilburn (http://www.jankilburn.com/), Maddie Lou Chaplin (MChaplin@maine.rr.com), and Tony Van Hasselt (http://www.vanhasselt.com/) and his wife Jan, and to spend time with our good friends Randy and Marsha.

There were a few sad moments, when we learned about the deaths of artists Judi Wagner and Nancy Gagnon, whose work we admired. And when we went to visit another artist couple, we found them packing up to leave for a new life in Florida.

Here are pictures from around the Boothbay area, which I have visited and loved since I was a little girl. I think you'll see why.

Hendricks Head Beach - RVPainter thought it was chilly, but he felt right asleep!

The East Boothbay General Store - now better than ever! Our old house is right around the corner.

The Ebb Tide has been there forever!

Boothbay Library - they have band concerts on the lawn every Thursday night during summer

The footbridge - one of the defining features of Boothbay

Sigh. A beautiful morning sitting on the rocks at Ocean Point. Perhaps my favorite thing in the world to do.
