A trip down the coast

We have a stretch of good weather and after all the rain, summer suddenly sneaked up on us. Time for a road trip! First, browsing the goods at the Treasure barn along Rt 1, just before Belfast. This place makes feel more like I am in a natural history museum than antique ‘mall’.

Should have bought the bear cast iron mold…

The next stop: lunch at Chase’s DDaily. The indoor farmers market was abundant with produce from the Chase’s garden, mostly fabulously looking lettuce. and herbs, even epazote.

Lunch followed the theme: lettuce with avocado, radishes, flowers and lime vinaigrette and grilled bread.

After snapping up a small olive tree at Brambles in Belfast, the next stop was: Camden.

A beautiful, quiet footbridge in Camden’s river district, full of hanging flowering baskets, and little benched to enjoy the ice cream.

On the way home, a stop at Dot’s in Lincolnville.
