Outdoor Wednesday in Camden

Please join Susan at a Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

No I am not done with Camden  yet! We look forward to it all year and each year we seem to enjoy it even more. We are both creatures of habit so we stay in the same inn in the same room and eat at the same restaurants. Each year we venture a little further and this year we made some wonderful discoveries. The Lord Camden Inn is right in the middle of town so we park our car in their lot and walk everywhere.
The Camden Deli is right across the street for breakfast.

After breakfast we wander around the harbor area.

Then we get in the car and take a field trip.
We always take a drive to Lincolnville home of  Cellardoor Winery. They have a new wine. Yes, it is called Serendipity!

And this is the description!
Say no more…..

We tasted the wines and brought some back to the cabin. We were also delighted to find out that the wines can be shipped to some states – Florida being one of them. Yeah! We will take some Maine to Florida with us.
Rockport is just outside of Camden. There is a lovely little harbor which was the home of Andre the seal and there is wonderful farm home to Belted Galloway cattle. Last year we drove all over – not a cow in sight. This year there they were. They must have known I had a new camera.

Just love these oreo cookie cows.
So then on this day of doing things just a little differently, we found a new place for lunch. We had seen this little restaurant but it was not open when we were there. Well it was this time. Wow!

The name of the restaurant is Paolina’s Way and it was wonderful. We had an antipasto, fish soup, bread and pizza and I had gelato for dessert.L1010349

Raspberry, Coconut, and Chocolate Gelato sprinkled with cocoa  powder and served with a big spoonful of Nutella on a square of pastry. There wasn’t much left.
I am still not done with Camden. I think some mosaics are in order. Have a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday.

Hi Carol, your photos are lovely. Such a nice place, you're lucky to have found it. I love the bright sunflower and the eucalyptus -very refreshing!

Carol, I am loving visiting Camden again and seeing it through your eyes.
Was the Timberwind in the harbour in Rockport?
We made our maiden windjammer voyage on her many years ago.
Please, please please more pix!

Hi Carol,
As always, your photographs are amazing! Camden is beautiful, and I'm so pleased that you let us tag along. I also enjoyed your "answering some questions" post --- great information!

Looking forward to seeing the mosaics in your next installment!


Mary said...

Carol, your photos are fantastic. You've made Camden appear to be a garden spot. You must have had a wonderful time.

What a delightful time I had coming by your post today! I want to get on a plane and go to Camden so bad! Thank you for sharing. Truly inspiring blog to visit! Have a good week!

Loved your pictures but they made me miss my parents! I love visiting Camden when I visit them. I will have to remember to ask them about Paolina’s Way and add it to our places to eat list the next time I visit. Maine is quite beautiful, but I am not fond of the winters!

Thank you for sharing your trip with us!

Oh my goodness -- for all my familiarity with New England, I have never been to Maine! I want to go, and I want to go to CAMDEN. That town should hire you as its publicist.
Fabulous pictures!

Hi Carol,
Don't you love your Mac! I have never tried photoscape, but I do use Big Huge Labs for my mosaics. Although, the last time I posted my mosaic to Blogger it came out tiny and I couldn't figure out how to enlarge it. Let me know what works best for you. Reading your Camden post really makes me miss our vacation there. We are planning to return next summer. If we do, I will let you know!
