In 2009 and 2010 we journeyed to Maine.
Both years we stayed in Southwest Harbor, Maine. This is the town that television mini-series, The Storm of the Century written by Stephen King, was filmed.
We stayed at a lovely Bed and Breakfast, Clark Point Inn, and the Breakfast, ‘were to die for’, as my buddy Ron often says!
I have had the good fortune to visit many states and several European Countries…but Maine has an allure that is unique.
We had lobster almost every day that we were there.
On our first lobster foray, Mary Jane ordered the entire lobster in it’s shell….and the waitress assured her that the lobster was easy to remove from the shell and that she would assist her.
I ordered the Lazy Man’s Lobster…all removed and ready to enjoy.
Southwest, Harbor is near both Bar Harbor, the former vacation spot for the ultra rich and famous, and Arcadia National Park.
The cool, in the Summer, climate and the lovely peaceful people were a delight!
We were astounded on our second visit to Southwest Harbor, the following year, that the owner of a small local restaurant that we had visited the year before not only remembered us but also recalled when we were there previously.
President Obama and his family vacationed in Bar Harbor, the week after we left and ate at the same restaurant that we did.
There is a slower rhythm to life in Maine…and a peaceful harmony that is seductive and compelling.
