6/18/14 Wednesday in Moody, ME (Moody Beach-TT/OW)
Easy morning, getting our computer work accomplished. After lunch we (including Susan/Bill) visited the Wells Farmer’s Market. Wonderful food there (even jam sweetened with honey) but we only bought some lettuce.
Wow, there sure were large and beautiful homes here. Kennebunkport was quite the interesting city as well.
Next to Kennebunkport at Walker’s Point where we visited St. Ann’s Episcopal Church which is apparently the Bush church from way back.
Then the Bush (H W Bush that is) compound, their summer home. The neighbors across the water made a big sign for his birthday. I even got a glimpse of Barbara Bush taking their dog for a walk (using her walker). I felt a little like the paparazzi.
Our last stop (almost) was at the Wedding Cake House. So named I think because of its ornate architecture. Our Frommer’s book says “This gorgeous 19th century house…was built by a sea captain for his new bride because he went to sea without having a taste of his wedding cake.” It’s a private residence and Susan happened to be taking photos when the owner started to drive down his driveway. He had 6 Prince Charles Spaniels in his car so they got talking, Susan enjoying the sweet dogs.
Our last stop was at a flag store where Susan looked for a bunting (red white and blue flag in a half circle) to put at the front of their RV. They didn’t have what she wanted in stock so she’ll call to see if it comes in later.
It was a pretty big day so we relaxed with our books, some TV and a leftover supper.
