This plump gull monitored every bite of my lobster roll at Cape Porpoise, Maine. The waitress told us to watch out for him as people had been hand-feeding him this summer and he could be a nuisance. He was quite polite though, and did not bother us. He looks well fed, yes?
Overall the weather was wonderful for our week in the Goose Rocks Beach/Kennebunkport area. This view is of boats in Perkins Cove, and seen through the lovely flower gardens there
The one rainy day of the week was Sunday, and that worked out fine because it's the day we attended the Pine Tree Quilters Guild show in Augusta. These two quilts were among my favorites. Holly Dominie of Readfield made these fabric collage quilts "Queen of MyHeart" of her daughter , and "Irrepressible" of her son. The detail is impressive.
The Civic Center was an excellent venue for the annual show with wide aisles for viewing the quilts, special exhibits, and plenty of vendors, too. I got these marbled pieces from Paula Lavender's booth.
