My Cousin came up from Bayside NY we had great fun. I now have Homemade Pasta sauce and her famous Meatballs In the freezer. She had them grind a huge cut of sirloin, you didn't have that greasy feel on your hands like hamburger rolling the meat balls. Then the next day a ground meat RECALL was at Hannaford. We shopped at Shaws.
The day before she left we drove to Pemaquid Point. Had lunch at the lighthouse, then gift shop and visit the light. What nerve!!!!!! 25 cents to use the bath room . Then we saw Fort William, and did not walk the great cemetery across the street. After that we shopped at Famous Reny's in Damariscotta.
Yes, This is Owls Head Lighthouse. we did that and Marshall Point Lighthouse
Renee's favorite place for Hamburgers. Owlshead Cafe
I am not here yet!!!!! Still on the Cane and walker, but I get around.
