Saturday Evening, May 24
It has been several years since we went to my favorite Maine restaurant, because it is closed during the winter ~ and we always visit in January. Our second visit is for the bluegrass festival on Labor Day weekend ~ and we always have things to do and places to eat at the festival.
This visit made me want to start a new tradition of going to Maine each May.
We enjoy going here with Mark and Diane.
Yes, I think we will have to start a new tradition and go to Maine in May.
One highlight of going to this restaurant is seeing the resident osprey.
I think she is in the nest, because I caught a glimpse of movement.
Yes, she is there ~ as displayed in the lobby by the live camera
It appears that there are currently three eggs.
I love the atmosphere of this place.
We were pleased that there was a seat at the window overlooking Pleasant Cove.
The tide was just beginning to come in.
It was wonderful to enjoy a meal with Mark and Diane ~ one that neither of us had to grill or cook.
Look what I ordered!
Oh, my, this was delicious.
The others got fairly ordinary meals.
We enjoyed watching several gulls and birds ~ including this osprey search for food as the tide came in.
There are binoculars at each table.
The osprey in the nest began stirring ~ making her more visible.
After finishing our meal, Diane suggested that we take a back road drive to see what was on the other side of the cove.
Back road drives in a new area are one of my favorite things to do.
I’ll show you those pictures tomorrow night.
