This is a picture I took from land looking out at the harbor.....
And this famous artist (I think he was using pastels), but I don't know who he is, so he must not be too famous, after all! But I did love this picture I just didn't have the $2000. that they were asking....maybe next year.
Yesterday we saw for the first time, a lobster crate race. What is that?....You might wonder. Well, it is when they tie 20 (or more, but they had 20) lobster crates together (upside down) then tie the ends to a dock and the participants have to run across them as many times as they can without falling into the water (back and forth, from one dock to the other). The slower you run, the faster you sink.Needless to say, this sport is best suited for the young and agile. One little boy, named Henry held onto the title by running across 516 crates. He beat his last years record of 423. He was so fast, and made it look so easy. Caleb and Harrison already decided they want to enter the contest next year.
Lauren loves to climb....she got up here and said..."Look at me, Mommy!!" This time, I had the camera ready.
There were a few gentle rolling hills for Liam to practice his new skill.....walking! Go Liam!
....And after the twenty seventh tumble......
"I'll conquer these hills yet..." he says.
We had a wonderful time in Camden and I'm sure we will go back for next years festival. I would like to make it a tradition....it is great to live in such a beautiful state; and activities like this give us good reasons to go and explore it.
PS--Mike transfered these pictures to my computer and I put this page together all by myself...can you tell I am proud? WAHOOOO!!!!
