To Tell the Truth
Last week, sunny skies and lots of red, yellow and orange foliage were abundant in Maine. I visited a dear friend, and to tell the truth, it was perfect. Ellen asked me on the return ride to the airport, what the highlight of the week was. It wasn’t difficult to decide.
The nature boat ride in Bar Harbor took first place.
Followed by dinner at Chart Room
We drove to Greenville, for lunch at Kelly’s Landing on Moose Head Lake and viewed a covered bridge along the way.
The next day it was Lobster Rolls at Youngs and movie Saints of Newark, Belfast Movie Theater, afternoon senior ticket was $5. We left after the power saw incident as the film lacked plot and character development. It was nothing but violence. Although the scenes of Newark, New Jersey Riots were riveting.
The last day it was brunch at Traci’s Dinner in Belfast, some shopping in Rockport and Camden then rooftop tapas dinning at The View, appropriately named because of the harbor view.
Evenings we absorbed the sunset view from Ellen’s townhouse and watched Netflix.
Truthfully, the cooler temperatures and fall colors re-energized me. .
The world is more difficult to navigate, post covid; especially travel. Flying on Allegiant Airlines I paid a $35 fee to carry-on a carry-on, and offered a bottle of water for $3.
At the security, we were informed computers didn’t have to be taken out of luggage after I had unzipped my suitcase and removed the device.
“Do I have to take off my shoes?” I asked.
“Are you 75?” asked the agent.
I lied and kept my shoes on.
Then stood like a convicted criminal with arms raised and feet apart in the circular scanner; patted down, and hands powder checked.
Luckily I wasn’t a serious threat and allowed to board.
To tell the truth . . . it was a great trip. Thank you Ellen.
. . . just saying

FYI (The pictures were taken by either Ellen or myself)
Beautiful pictures of New England. We were there a few years ago.
Not much has changed. Maine still has that 1960 vibe.
Love it a trip and visit to remember, thank you both.

Sounds like a great trip. Love the sunset view. Fall is a lovely time of year!
Yes, I’m back in Florida and thankful the humidity has lifted some. We have friends who travel in an Air Stream.

Always LOVE your blogs! You draw pictures with your words and this was one of your best!
Also, the photo of the stream with fall foliage is worthy of enlarging and framing — stunning!
Pat, How kind . . . thank you. I must confess I was pleased with the photo. It’s something I’ve been working on. Claudia
Sounds like a marv trip, bit envious.
Yes just what the doctor ordered.
