Maine Respite

We came mighty close to attending the Maine Lobster Festival this weekend.
~
 Instead we went to the Owl's Head Transportation Museum in Rockland which is a world class collection of primarily automobiles... incredibly clean and high end.... a first rate take and truly a must see in the Maine Down East region.
~
The highlight of the museum visit was an air show featuring a WWII American Corsair fighter plane flying in manuveres with one of only two remaining  a Japanese Zero's in existence.   The power and speed of these fighters were impressive, and you couldn't help but wonder what those Zero's attacking Pearl Harbor must have looked like.

Our hosts for the weekend were the gracious Frary's of Marblehead, MA and St. George, Maine.   Kevin and Susan Frary have their beautiful vacation home on the Watts Cove inlet of the St. George Penninsula and they incredibly watch the sun set in the west over the ocean inlet every evening.
~
We were accompanied by Dale and Gail Johnson , some of our favorite Peeps. and not just because they laugh at most of my lame jokes.
~
There are other reasons.
~
On the ride home, we stopped in downtown Portland, Maine, which has become completely revitalized and is a destination in itself.  I was inpressed with the amount of foreign tourists who were enjoying the shops and restaurants of the seaport district.

A nice weekend respite.
