Wayne and I took a drive out to Bailey Island, an absolutely adorable and picturesque place. The summer breezes were filled with the wonderful scent of the sea.
The view while driving over the very narrow historic Cribstone Bridge from Orr’s Island to Bailey Island. There’s a walking path on the left.
We stopped at the Landmark Gift Shop, open since 1959, at the “end of the road.”
A statue! Let’s get a closer look…
“A Memorial To All Maine Fisherman Who Have Devoted Their Lives To The Sea.”
I am very moved by the emotional details on his face that is beautifully complimented by the patina. I have not altered the colors in this photo in any way.

Stained glass sights inside the shop.
A patriotic pallet.
Lobster stew at the local church community supper.
Yellow lobster traps look color-coordinated with the yellow flowering weeds.

Wayne checking out the views. (He’s so handsome!)
Wayne! This place! This Island! The three of them together during a typical perfect sunny Maine summer day made a memorable meal. Cook’s is in the center of it all surrounded by water, boats and lobster traps.
We had the Land and Sea (aka surf-n-turf) which is tenderloin beef medallions with twin lobster tails and two sides which for me were fries and slaw. I had a huge smile on my face during my whole meal. Everything was so good and cooked to perfection. We both loved our dinners!
The meal, the views, the summer weather and spending time with Wayne was bliss, but we also had a bonus view— we passed a very charming summer Episcopal Chapel on Orr’s Island which I have photographed from the outside. Coming up next!
