Well, the 62nd Annual Maine Lobster Festival went by like a flash of lightning. We also had a visit from one of my dearest friends, Karen along with her husband Kyle and their little daughter Jessica. Despite some sprinkles, this years festival seemed to be a roaring success.
Starting August 7th is the annual Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors show. This is the largest in the water boat show in the country and draws people from all over. The show also features many fine furnture craftsmen. A good friend of ours, Paul Smith of Cathedral Woodworking, will be showing again the year. Last year, we purchased a beautiful porch swing for the front of the inn.
Guests have throughly enjoyed using the swing. It is truly beautiful. As Paul now lives in Michigan, our swing will be in display at the show this year as a sample for visitors to see.
One of the highlights of the event is the Boat dog trials. Here is a photo of last years winner.
