39 degrees this morning! A bit chilly for us, so we ran the furnace for the first time this fall. It worked fine, thank goodness. But then the sun came out and things warmed up to around 70 something.
When we were in Portsmouth a lady passing by gave us sample size jars of Maine Blueberry Jam and coupons for Stonewall Kitchen. It is in York, which was not far from where we are so we went to see it. This is the Stonewall Kitchen Home Offices, Production Facility, Company Store & Cafe and Cooking school. We enjoyed samples of many flavors of jams and jellies, sauces and dips, all excellent! But the blueberry was the very best. Wild blueberries are Maine’s official fruit and many towns here claim to be the blueberry capital, and there are several blueberry festivals.
The Marginal Way Scenic Walk in Ogunquit, Maine, is a 1.25 beautiful paved walk along the ocean. Here are some pictures from our walk:
It was definitely a beautiful walk, nice paved trail, 30 benches to sit on all along the way. It was well worth seeing. The only problem is this little town of Ogunquit has very limited parking. I think there are only 12 free parking spaces in the whole town and our friend, Peter, knew where they were! We found one! Thanks Peter! Otherwise, it’s $10 to park.
At the end of the walkway is Perkins Cove, where you can find restaurants, shops, boutiques, candy stores, etc. as well as this pedestrian only drawbridge.
The other end of the walkway is a footbridge to the beach.
We met up with Peter at Nubble Lighthouse and watched him work for a while.
