|Wayne and Shady Oaks owner, Don Nelson. |
Shrek and an unidentified camper look on.... suspect of Wayne's hand on Don's knee, I expect.
|Richard and Jean Merrithew are summer residents at Shady Oaks. |
They invited us to join them for the campground brunch..
|Joyce and Don Nelson run a great family campground. Don has just given us a golf cart tour. |
Unfortunately, they established a "no dog" policy long ago and we can't stay there now that we have Lexie and Ozzie.
|Zoey, Mary and Fran|
One of the last Sunday mornings at Ellsworth, Wayne cooked breakfast for the gang. Bacon, sausage, eggs, croissants, biscuits, molasses and fruit filled us up. Funny how we always look forward to eating events.
|Chef Wayne in formal attire takes a break from cooking breakfast. |
Errol (sitting) and Gleason (standing) wait in hungry anticipation.
|The Stephen King home. Notice the spider web and bat wrought iron ornaments.|
|Making chocolate covered cherries with Barbara and Gina. Yes, they were good.|
|Barbara taught the chocolate covered cherry making class.|
A superb cook, Barbara ran her own candy making business while her boys were young.
|Mince meat pies|
Ellsworth and all of Down East Maine continues to be a favorite place for us. Not so much for the location, though there is so much to see and do here. But our love is of the warmth of the friendships we have here. Can't wait to come again.
