On our visit to Rumford and Mexico, Maine this is some of what we saw. Located in the foothills of the White Mountains, Rumford is the site of Pennacook Falls, called by historian George J. Varney "the grandest cataract in New England," where the Androscoggin River drops 177 feet over solid granite. When I first saw this I thought this was man made.
Now look farther back and see yet another waterfall or cataract.
A natural beauty I am glad I stopped to see.
The Cataract for years generated power for the paper company that these logs are headed for.
New England is fiercely patriotic, one of the memorials here in the Rumsford/Mexico area.
Then on down to Scarbourgh (called Down East by the Maniers).
We stopped by to see friend Judy and took her out to Lunch.
She and her husband Al (now deceased) used to own the Brown box Pie company in the Bar harbor area. She is now using her talents to assist her granddaughter on a trip to Ireland. Here she is giving Sherry a Strawberry/rhubarb pie.
Son Scott and his wife, the sign below is in their front yard….
He is a Maine Lobsterman.
Judy knows we love Lobsta, as we talked with Scott & family Judy fixed us FOUR ‘one pound’ lobsta’s to bring home. DELICIOUS with fresh corn.
Sherry caught this sunset and church on our way home.
An end to a beautiful day. In my mind, it seems that every place we travel is more beautiful than the last.
Thanks for coming along.
We always try to learn as much as possible from friends and family who are left alone after losing a loving mate. We are not morbid, but know percentages show that one of us will eventually be left. Life is not going to change for us. We will try to use our time wisely.
We have learned a lot from you guys who have experienced the BIG loss. Hey, one of you sweeties are having a birthday soon.
