Since I took so many photos I have to divide the posting into two parts.
July 4th - Visit Eastport, Maine
|The ferry glides through a thin layer of mist|
Our plan was to go over to Eastport, Maine and visit the USS Anzio which was open for the public.
The check- in was like at an airport, screening of purses and walking though a gate.
Outside a small vessel circled around to make sure no one came too close.
Several small groups toured the vessel at the same time.
We went from the end to the front, and from the bottom to the top.
Don't expect any naval language from me, I have no clue. But it was an amazing and a worthwhile
|Amazing how big that anchor chain is!|

Afterwards we went up and down Waterstreet.
At one end they had just started a pie-eating contest.
The photos speak for themselves!!!!
The one with the bandana was the quickest eater!

And further down the road were an exhibition of vintage cars.
These are the ones I liked the best.

By now it was noon and high time that we got out of the glaring sun and heat for a while. So, we decided to find a good spot for something to eat.
