Our very own Lobster Festival   4 comments

Yesterday (Saturday) we decided to go to the Rockland Lobster Festival. C and I like to look at the crafts and go on a few rides, A and C like to eat lobster. We headed out around 10, figured we would stay a couple of hours, then go to Staples and Home Depot.

We got as far as the outside of Camden, when traffic came to a complete stop. We sat in it for a few minutes, and realized that we did not know if this traffic was just Summer Saturday in Camden, traffic for the festival (still 2 towns away) or something else entirely. And it was raining. So we turned around.
We headed back toward Belfast, and decided to create our own Lobster festival.

We stopped at Saturday cove (www.saturdaycove.com) which I had never been in, but always wanted to stop at. Glad I did, I LOVED it. If I had millions, I would have bought most everything and turned my home into a wonderful shabby-chic beach cottage. We got ideas for art projects, and things I want to go back to buy, and I will do it someday. 🙂 Then we headed into downtown Belfast, parked the car, and wandered Main Street. We saw art galleries, Maine-made shops, jewelry, and a game store (where we bought a new game and a 2000 piece puzzle, to ensure it won’t rain again this week.)

At the bottom of the hill, we had lunch at the Weathervane on the dock, C got her lobster, I had shrimp, A had lobster alfredo.

Walking back to the car, we went into one more shop, and C found a dress she liked, so we got it for her for her birthday.

We decided that although we didn’t get rides, we had a better time – no crowds, and many of the same crafters we would have seen in the craft tents. And the lobsters were all picked out for A and C. 🙂

Supper last night was ice cream, since we ate lunch so late. Not a bad day at all.

    • Yea, A and C like it too. I had stuffed shrimp, which I like better, so it really worked out – at the real festival, there would have been no other cohoices except fair food.
