In Smyrna Mills (I think...) is Bishop's store. We turned right heading out to check out the Amish folks' goods and on the way back stopped to photograph this metal sculpture. The other thing in the photo is, K said, a representation of a SCUD missile down the outhouse.

And there was a turnout we stopped at for Robinson Mountain but that view did not excite me. I loved the granite guardrail and the farm, though...

Bishops is in Island Falls. I stop there every time I go down to fish Mattawamkeag Lake several times a year. Nice people in there usually.

Thanks... I was not paying attention to where the lines were, especially not on the way back. It had been a LONG day on the road.

When my sister visited me from Maine a few weeks ago, I downloaded all the pictures on her camera. She had loaned her camera to my brother's wife who now lives in a log cabin in Dover for a trip to Newfoundland last summer to meet her long lost family there. She was adopted and didn't find her mother and family until just a couple years ago while in her 40's. Seems she has dozens of family up there. But I was impressed with the photos of where here new family is from. I know these aren't Maine pictures but thought they looked a lot like our own coast and region.

Several of her family work in the fishing/lobstering trade....


They all live near the coast....




Several views from above....

Let's just hope he's not saying "I'm going to Robin's!"
