Day Trip to Castine, Maine

On Saturday we took a half-day to visit nearby Castine, where the Maine Maritime Academy is located. Castine is a quaint, tiny village settled in the early 1600's.

The town seems to take great pains to post items of historical significance where they can be easily seen and that was a real treat for us.  I took photos of some of the most interesting signs to post here.

They were made to eat their own noses and ears!  Horrors.
