Eastport, Maine, part two

Eastport, Maine, part two

The roads were packed with people milling around and waiting for the parade to start.
We went to a place called "Quoddy Bay Lobster" which is known 
for being the best place in all Maine 
for a good lobster dinner.
And here we go...............MMMMMMHHH
This was a lobster roll junior size. Just enough for me.
After lunch we strolled back through the crowds, had another
view across the harbour and to USS Anzio
before we decided to take the next ferry home and
not wait for the parade. We were at that point tired and longing
for a cool place to put our feet up.
But it definitely had been a gorgeous "fun day".
On the way back the wind had picked up, 
the air was considerably colder, and
the waters were now choppy. 
There were gulls everywhere.
Back at home I carried the deck furniture inside and 
lined up my flower pots for the same procedure.
The rest of my garden has to get through the rough
weather as good as it can.

An hour later the sky turned into an ominous shade of grey
and dark clouds were rolling in. 

was closing in on us.
I am not sure if there will be any fireworks tonight.

PS. As of 8:30 AM Saturday morning: There was no firework, it rained. Now there is a very strong wind, all the trees are bending and twisting. 
Electricity goes on and off.
Steven and Lindsey are back in the US after a horrible border crossing into Canada in St. Stephens. Read about it here.  They decided not to go to Nova Scotia as was planned.
