Ken's Maine Trip -- Day 2

Friday, August 28, 2009

It was a chilly morning in Augusta -- 42 degrees at 7:30 A.M.

After breakfast at my parents' house we took a drive up to Livermore Falls, Wilton and Farmington. I grew up in Wilton, actually in the village of Dryden just outside of Wilton. I was born in Farmington. We moved from Dryden to Augusta when I was 12 years old.

The scenery everywhere was very green. It has been a wet summer in central Maine.

Wilson Lake, Wilton, MaineWilson Lake in Wilton was as beautiful as ever and the sky was very clear.

Downtown Farmington, MaineFarmington's downtown hasn't changed a bit.

Boivins Harvest House Restaurant, Farmington, MaineWe ate at Boivins Harvest House, a restaurant between Wilton and Farmington where we had eaten before. Now it's under new owners and althought the food was good last time it was even better this time.

Spent a lot of time in the afternoon and evening watching Teddy Kennedy's wake. What a fantastic cast of characters had asembled to speak about him.
