Maine - Camden and Port Clyde

June 2012:

RVPainter and I lived in Maine for 20 years - first in York Beach, which is in southern Maine, just over the border from NH, and then in East Boothbay, which is in mid-coast Maine. I have a life-long association with Boothbay, as we vacationed here from the time I was 7 or 8.  We have had the most wonderful weather here. There is nothing more beautiful than a perfect Maine summer day - the only problem is that it often seems there are too few of them! But this week has been GLORIOUS!

We went up to Camden, which is where the movie Peyton Place was filmed way back when. It's one of the most charming towns in this area. Then we drove out to Port Clyde, where Marshall Point Light is. Parts of Forrest Gump were filmed there. The whole area is just gorgeous.

We spend today out at Ocean Point in East Boothbay - possibly my favorite place on earth. Then we went over to Hendrick's Head Beach. Today I'm posting the Camden pictures, and I'll post the Boothbay ones later in the week.

Just a great little scene

Belted Galloways - I think these cows are beautiful

Port Clyde

Marshall Point Light in Port Clyde

This would make a good painting

Typical Maine seacoast garden - this one at Marshall Point Light

Marshall Point is a very unique lighthouse, being out at the end of the walkway like that

Looking from the lighthouse back toward the lightkeepers' house

Buoy display inside the lighthouse museum. I love buoys :)
