August 15, 2019 Old Orchard Beach, ME (day 2)


Happy birthday, Dad!  He would have been 91 today.  We miss you every day!  

We had some phone calls and business to attend to after breakfast.  Bob washed the truck, as campers pulled out on their way to somewhere.  The campground got quiet and emptier.  We decided to go have lunch at a place that we've eaten at before in Scarborough on a previous trip–Scarborough Lobster.  

It's a funky little place on the side of the road that you might miss if  you weren't looking for it, but the lobster rolls are the cheapest we've seen so far on this trip.  We split a lobster roll and an order of mussels.

They were the largest mussels we've ever seen and the owner told us they came from Trenton, near Bar Harbor.  

Bob found a couple of "pearls" when he was chewing his mussels.

Everything was yummy!  We stopped at Hannaford's for a few groceries and returned to the campsite to hang out with Auggie.  It was a beautiful day of 75 degrees and clear, blue skies.  Around 5:15, Patti and Mike arrived and set up their camper. They were in the campsite next to us.

We waited to have dinner with them when they arrived.  We had burgers, potato salad, and blueberry pie for dessert.  I took Auggie for his walk and joined them around the campfire.  Auggie hates the campfire and sat inside the trailer for awhile.  Then he wanted to be with us. so he sat on Bob's lap at the fire.  (There's just something about the crackling of the wood that really freaks him out.)

The moon and stars came out for awhile until the clouds moved in. Tomorrow, we plan to take a scenic drive south to York to get a better look at the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse.  When we were here last time to see it, they were doing some restoration work and there was scaffolding all around it.  It was hard to see and very disappointing.  So, we'll try again and hope to get a better look.
