Where I stayed
Our primary goal today was to find some wild blueberries to pick. We were not disappointed! The kids picked about a quart along a roadside and they were very tasty.
We stopped at the Downeast Salmon Federation Hatchery in East Machias, ME. We were given a tour and learned a lot about the local salmon. Really nice people!!! We were the only ones there and it was well worth the trip.
Ok, here it is...the part of the trip where I lost it
For dinner we had only one thing in mind...Whole Maine Lobster! I picked up some candles and had arranged for Sarah's lobster to come to the table clutching the candles. The gals at Harbor Girl Emporium and Café were thrilled to oblige. The girls went out with our cook, thanked the lobsters for giving their lives for our meal and watched the lobsters plunge into the cooking pot. When the meal was ready, everyone in the restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to Sarah. It was an awesome night.
After dinner Sarah and I went out to create rock sculptures. It was a peaceful ending to a great day.
