Last Tuesday at this time, I was driving north to Boothbay Harbor, ME, with two friends for a 'quilty' getaway. We wanted to go to the Maine Quilts Show 2018 in Augusta on Thursday so we headed up north a few days earlier. I posed with hard working, dedicated, Smokey the Bear at the highway Information Center.
Our first quilt stop was at Cotton Weeds Quilt Shop in Freeport, ME. If you are ever in Freeport, be sure to stop and visit this lovely shop. It turned out to be our favorite shop on this trip. I purchased a few fat quarters, a pattern, and yardage for a table runner.
Boothbay Harbor is just an hour from Augusta, so that is where we stayed at one of my very favorite getaway places, Brown's Wharf Inn. Here's Laurel and Edith with Captain Brown.
Brown's Wharf is a three story motel with fabulous water views from every room; that is if the fog doesn't come rolling in. :-)
After dinner, we drove over to Southport to photograph the two lighthouses. Here's Hendrick Head Light which is no longer operational and privately owned but easily seen from the beach.
Well, this is easily seen usually; this is all we saw of the lighthouse, so we headed back to Brown's. By the way, don't you just love the little red sandals in the foreground . . . serendipity!
Here's the view from the balcony of my room that night.
