Daily Pics: Giggles Along Mid-Coast Maine

by in America, US Road Trip 2014

A day of exploring the tentacles of Mid-Coast Maine. Rugged, rocky and salty tough. Lobsters everywhere – as common as you like. Mixed up little things with its brain located in its throat, its nervous system in its abdomen, its teeth in its stomach and its kidneys in its head. They were once regarded as the poor man’s protein, fed to prisoners and used as pet food. How quickly things change from rags to riches.

Risky business

We took it in turns to see the lighthouse. On return Baby Boy O was wailing. What did daddy do to you?!

 

Laughing baby

Which quickly turned into his first big laugh

 

Old fashioned ice cream stand

It was all rainbows and unicorns and ice cream after that
