Kayaks, Granite Gardens, and Lobsters

We started our day off with a paddle around Flanders Pond.  Since we didn't bring our own kayaks on this trip, Gina and Jay were kind enough to lend us their kayaks, as well as their vehicle to transport them.

I didn't take my camera out on the water with us because of the brisk breeze and choppy waters, but I wish I had.  We had a close-up view of a bald eagle on a tree not far above us, as well as a younger eagle.  Later, at the marshy end of the lake, we saw a beaver dam, and all the water lilies were in bloom.

In the afternoon we visited a local Granite Garden Gallery ( and were amazed by some of these works of art, displayed around a granite quarry.

This sculpture reminds me of a very happy dog.

In late afternoon, Jay built a campfire, and we feasted on a Downeast lobster boil, complete with fresh lobsters, potato salad, cole slaw, corn on the cob, and three-berry pie (fresh blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries). Delicious!
