Harpswell, Maine – a field of flowers

US 1 in coastal Maine is perfect for the summer road trip. Off of US 1 are exits to different fingers or peninsulas with unique sightseeing opportunities at every turn. One of the highway turnoffs was to Harpswell. We were going to stop for lunch and look for whatever came our way. Halfway on our drive a magnificent field of yellow sunflowers stopped us in our tracks, their yellow faces begging to be photographed. What a joy for the eyes. The rural countryside is a great antidote for busy urban lives.

75BCE0CF-890F-4C0D-BBF3-D3DBF59E9463 Harpswell is a quiet enclave with a beautiful marina at the end of the country road. We pulled our deck chairs out of the car just to sit and enjoy the view of the harbor and boats from the shore. We played cards and sat with the dogs- nowhere to go, no schedule to meet.

Erica’s Seafood is a popular spot for another waterfront lunch. That day’s pick – clam chowder, and a juicy fresh lobster roll. What a treat!

Driving back we spotted the uber famous Red’s Eats for a lobster roll. The line was long. The view not as scenic. Glad to have found Erica’s on the harbor.
