We are creatures of habit. In years past we have also visited the Desert of Maine (yes, there is a desert in Freeport) and The Harraseeket Marina to purchase our lobsters and steamers (now there is a market in Dixfield, next to Peru to buy the lobsters). This year, after shopping, we headed to the Winslow Memorial Park and Campground to go swimming. Even in a cove the water is COLD in Maine.
On Wednesday, the kids and I headed north to Byron, Maine to go to the Coos Canyon Gorge. This is a beautiful place to go swimming although the water was low due to no rain all summer.
Wednesday night, we also went north (the other way) to South Carthage, ME to hear some Celtic Music at the Skye Theater. This theater is a labor of love for the owner and his wife - he bought an old junk yard and barn and is slowly rebuilding the barn to house the musical venue. It's basically sitting on the top of a mountain. The night we went, we saw a family named the Celtic Spring - 6 siblings plus parents - playing fiddle and other instruments and all of them doing Irish Dancing. They were amazing!
