A Day At Ogunquit Maine – Beautiful Place by the Sea

14 09 2017

Well it’s Labor Day weekend and we had the opportunity to visit Ogunquit Maine. It’s name means Beautiful Place by the Sea, and on this day it was. The weather was great and the sky was blue with some wispy clouds. A great day for photography.

We started or visit by making a traditional stop by Flo’s Hot Dog Stand. Its a family owned business since 1959. Its the secret sauce that makes it special.

Then we drove into Perkins Cove parked our car and walked around the cove visiting some of the local shops and the famous manually operated walking draw bridge. When a sail bout is coming in it’s up to the people on the bridge to press the button sounding the warning bell allowing the bridge to open to the passing boat with a tall mast.

Onto the The Marginal Way, A 1 1/4 mile Coastal Stroll along the seashore. We finished our stroll at Ogunquit Beach stopping into one of the local restaurants to quench our thirst, meet some interesting people and had some conversation.

It’s been a fun day so far and we drove down Shore Road to Cape Neddick Lobster Pound where at sunset we walked around back to photograph some boats in the harbor during the golden hour. The reflections in the water was nice to see before the sun set and we went in for dinner.

We had a lot of fun and that part of Maine is one of our go to destinations every year. Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and enjoy a few of our photographs.

Named the “Feast of all Feasts” by National Geographic Magazine, this authentic Italian street festival has it all for people of every age: parades, strolling singers, live entertainment, contests and religious services are held daily.

We started our day by having lunch at World Famous Regina Pizzeria. And as luck would have it Wally (The Boston Red Sox Mascot made an appearance. Did you know that Regina Pizzeria is now the Official Pizza of the Boston Red Sox and they couldn’t be more honored! This exciting new partnership between Boston’s Favorite Baseball team and Boston’s Brickoven Pizza! Wally made sure to visit every table inside and outside taking photos with everyone. What a fun time!

There was so much to eat including that favorite pastry The Cannoli.

We stopped into a local pub for some refreshments, had a great conversation with some local people and folks visiting Boston. Got into a conversation with a lady the is retiring next week that was looking for something to do. She has many talents including cooking and photography/video. I suggested to her why not marry those two interests and start you own cooking show or block. She love the idea and her brain was already spinning. She thanked me for the idea and we moved on.

We walked through Paul Revere Park right by the Old North Church. Took in a tour of how an old printing press functioned and watched A Declaration was printed, We watched an other demonstration on how chocolate was made in the 1700’s and even had a taste. We took many photos during the day and had a lot of fun.

How was your weekend?

Sunflowers – 14 acres of sunflowers

11 08 2017

Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, Connecticut is the place to go when you want awesome homemade ice cream and you want to bask in the glow of a 14 acres of sunflowers. Buttonwood Farm was named by Foursquare as one of the best places in to get ice cream in Connecticut. Back in 2003 the owners of the farm decided to plant an acre of sunflowers. Over the course of that year they found that people were driving from miles around just to look at the sunflowers and take pictures of them. At the end of the season they used the seeds for feed for their animals and today they not only use the seeds as feed but they sell bunches of sunflowers to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation.
Come view more than 14 acres of sunflowers in bloom, enjoy a hayride, and contribute to a wonderful cause. Don’t forget to try the sunflower ice cream – available only during this event.
Not only can you take photographs of sunflowers but you can experience a tractor drawn hayride daily from 11 am to dusk. The ride is 3/4 ths of a mile through cow pastures and 4 acres of the Buttonwood Farm sunflower fields in bloom.

Buttonwood Farm is located at 473 Shetucket Turnpike, Griswold, CT 06351
