Early we leave, okay mid morning. Stopped for breakfast, ‘twas good. Son Jack said probably the best breakfast he ever had, then quickly added, except mom’s.
Then to Camden in the rain. Watched a pirate attack and went aboard a Tall ship. Got a personal tour, loved the ship.

Ship on the left is the ‘Mary Day’, this is the pirate ship after the attack tying up beside the Mary Day.
I love the nautical line handling and faking. You see the rain was still with us, the boys and I aft on the ship.
The boys and mama on the starboard side. Right the First Mate and I.
Sherry and I on the pier beside the Mary Day.
Left the Tall ships and headed to Owl Head and a surprise. I went expecting Planes and motorcycles, I got a thrill, OLD CARS!
I am going to show only a couple you might not recognize:
(This first on is a motorcycle with training wheels, has a V8 engine and production costs was $25,000 in 1913, listed in the 50 worst vehicles made.)
The two above I recognized from my childhood.
BUT this little Crosley Roadster I had never seen nor heard of. It is a cute dude. I love it.
There was much more but I will hold that for later. It was a great day. Jack found us a parking place, I have never seen such small places:
(Not our car but you get the idea! Jack got it in, Mark got it out!)
Thanks for coming this way gotta go.
It is never too late to become what you might have been.
I will close with some of the most beautiful cars there:
1933 Packard 12 (?)
‘33-‘34 Pierce Arrow.
