We've been traveling again -- Husband Jim and I. Going to lands we've not been before -- New England! We found ourselves first in Maine -- in Bar Harbor
With beautiful views of the Harbor . . .
And a charming downtown to shop in!
And what is main without blueberries? Pies and muffins -- with the window opened it was tempting to reach in and take one -- they were fresh out of the oven, the aroma was heavenly and they were still warm.
But inside the shop . . . .
Tins of blueberry muffins awaited customers. And what a choice . . . a muffin or a piece of pie!
I chose the pie. Blueberry perfection! Blueberry heaven! Still warm and bursting with fresh wild Maine blueberries! It was amazing!
But first . . . we had one of these. Another must when you visit Maine.
A Lobster Roll. From The Side Street Cafe. Voted the best lobster roll in Bar Harbor by the locals. We thought it very tasty. Husband Jim and I with a vote of two to zero voted it the best lobster roll we had in Bar Harbor! Full of perfectly cooked lobster meat, a hint of mayo, a fresh grilled roll and a sprinkle of paprika. It's a perfect lunch when you're in Bar Harbor!
It's Monday and I'm joining Smiling Sally for Blue Monday. There isn't anything bluer than blueberries!
And my Bar Harbor souvenir? A tin of Bar Harbor Wild Blueberry Tea. It's a wonderful tea bursting with fresh blueberry flavor. Not from flavorings but from real blueberries. It brings back memories of the day we spent in Bar Harbor! And it's a tea that I'll always keep in my larder. For I found that I don't have to go to Bar Harbor to purchase it -- I can buy it online!
