The clouds moved out and a cooling breeze off the Sheepscot River was welcome in the hot sun now beating down so after our delicious lunch we had an ice cream and walked around a the tiny village a bit with Ben the dog. At one point he decided to take a doggy dive into the water, coming up festooned with seaweed like a sea monster from the deep. He didn't take long to dry though and we headed to Wiscasset to meet our new AirBnB hosts, Rick and Elizabeth.
It was a short distance to Wiscasset - our secluded spot not far from the town was quiet but with the usual clouds of Maine mosquitoes. The couple and their two young boys made us feel right at home, getting the BBQ ready for us so we could cook up a mess of lamb chops for supper and helping me after dark to celebrate my birthday by lighting a lantern and launching it into the night sky. After a very comfortable sleep, a delicious breakfast prepared by our host and hugs all around we decided to spent the rest of the morning in Boothbay Harbor, a half hour south, before heading home.
