On to the coast

Morning visitors…gobble gobble

Jim gave me a tour of their vegetable garden as well as their extensive Christmas gift shop before we departed this morning. Last year they made and sold 5,775 wreaths! Here’s a couple more photos from the tree farm.

Narrow country roads with colorful leaves falling all around created a quintessential New England Autumn scene as we proceeded down Route 1A to the coast.

We hiked around and had lunch at Fort Point State Park near Stockton Springs and spent a pleasant afternoon touring the Penobscot Maritime Marine in Searsport.

It really wasn’t as cold and miserable as it looks here

While trying to decide where to spend the night, we realized that Lauri and Doug’s summer cottage in Castine was just an hour away. We gave them a call while on our way to make sure their driveway was available and found out that Doug was on his way over from Vermont. We got there just before a heavy rain began to fall. Doug arrived about an hour after us and we had a nice visit over tea in haRVy.

Foggy morning, partly sunny afternoon, rainy evening, warm. Newburgh to Castine, Maine. 70 miles
