The day started out looking a little ugly, but quickly cleared off and became a very nice day.
We found some interesting artifacts including the moose antlers being modeled here by the Sister-In-Law. I picked up some toy lobster magnets for the grandkids, and got a good deal on a pair of hats and a pair of T-shirts for myself and The Wife.
We ate lunch at a really interesting place, the Bar Harbor Route 66 Restaurant, where I partook of Clam Chowder and a Lobster Roll.
The inside of the place was as interesting as the outside. The original restaurant burned in the mid-80’s; when it was rebuilt, some of the features of an old church that was being demolished were incorporated. The stained glass windows and fancy bannisters and railings provide a unique look.
Toss in a lot of ’50s and ’60s antiques and you get a pretty memorable atmosphere.
And the food was excellent too.
I have to admit that it was…um…different. Probably not a flavor I’d go out of my way to get in the future, but definitely worth trying once.
