Why do we love to drive up to Maine when we live on the RI coast? It’s different, that’s why. And that means that it’s also refreshing, mentally as well as physically. The lobster boats are different, the coastline is rockier and in my opinion, more interesting, and the air even smells different. Lobsters are cheaper there, too – just $5 each!
Speaking of lobster, I took a stroll on a dock in a beautiful coastal village called “Friendship,” and watched the lobstermen, still hard at work and making the most of it before the cold weather sets in. This guy was preparing bait for the traps.
Early November can be a wonderful time to visit – IF you get good weather, which we most definitely had. I don’t have any garden-specific tidbits to share with you from this trip, but I thought you might like to see some photos of the towns we visited.
Belfast is an interesting and artsy town. Check out this amazing trompe l’oeuil on somebody’s door!
