I have been working in the front of the yard. Today I saw so many Bikers. It's the Lobster Ride. Two weeks ago I had a show while weeding the flowers by the road. It was all the Antique cars. Everyone waved at me. They were all dressed up in Antique dresses and Hats. It was a sight to see.
This is beautiful Rockport Harbor, my favorite spot.
This weekend is a mad house in Camden Maine. The Tall ships and wind Jammers are here and the Fairs are going on besides The Festivals.
They also have the Lobster trap walk.Just below the waterfall they line up the traps and kids try to walk them. So many fall in the water, it's fun to watch. The kids all try because the Prize is big money.
This is a land mark Cappy's
Wishing you all a fabulous Labor Day weekend. Yvonne
