The cottage was immaculate, and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. We were surprised at how many attractions were so close to this area. We had a very fun filled week. Leslie and Gordon could not have been more accommodating. We were told of a beautiful sand beach about a 5 minute wooded walk from the cottage and what a treasure! We hunted for sea glass and even did a little swimming. We had brought a picnic with us and had a scruptuous buffet on the beach! Our days started out with a blueberry muffin and a cup of coffee on the deck, watching the lobstermen hauling in their catch. One lazy afternoon, I took my book down to the shore in front of the cottage and lounged in the sun on my lawn chair. What a beautiful place for a midnight bonfire. On our one foggy day, we found puzzles, games, and were surprised that the sattelite TV had the pay stations, so we had plenty to do. One day, I asked Leslie where I could get lobsters and, low and behold, her husband is a lobsterman, and brought lobsters right to our door. He even gave us a lesson on eating them. Here is a wrap up of our day excursions: Mount Batty (beautiful views), Ferry ride to Monhegan Island, shopping in Camden (and saw the Windjammer ships), the Farnsworth Art Museum (Andrew Wyeth central), and here is a list of the many lighthouses we visited (Owls Head Light, Marshall Point, Pemaquid, and our furthest adventure to Acadia National Park and the Bass Harbor Light). Wow, what a week. We will be back. Overall, it was our best Maine vacation ever!!!
