After getting breakfast and some supplies at the local Whole Foods Market in Portland, we headed north. 

First stop, was to make a short visit with a fellow woodworker in his studio in Brunswick, Kevin Rodel.  His shop is in a converted factory, which now houses retail, office and workshops.

Great building.

There are hardwood floors throughout

Interesting halls and throughfares.

We left Kevin after a nice visit and headed north on Hwy 1.  It was a very pleasant drive winding through little villages.  Along the way we stopped at a quilt store just a few miles off the main highway.  (See next post).

And we also stopped at Lie Nielsen, which Kevin had told us was right on our way.

We made it to Rockland where we had lunch at a restaurant on the water, The Landings.  We had to have lobster, so the only thing that was gf was Lobster Risotto, which we both ordered - it left something to be desired.  

We had to touch the Atlantic Ocean before we headed inland.
We left the coast and headed inland, our next stop the capitol, Augusta, where we toured the State House.

After a nice tour of the capital building we continued through Maine, with a few stops along the way to enjoy the scenery. 

 Then we headed into New Hampshire, where we spent the night in Gorham, arriving just as the sun was setting.
