Blue Angels over Brunswick

The Blue Angels are coming to Brunswick NAS this September 15 & 16. The show is free and Maine Eastern RR is running a special train from Rockland to the Naval Air Station. More info about the show is available at the Great State of Maine Air Show website. For train schedules check the Maine Eastern RR website.

We are located about 10 miles from NAS, a quick drive from here to Brunswick.

Just a quick preview of an upcoming event we are planning October, just before Halloween, we are planning with 2 other B&B's to host a Spirit Walk with medium Eddita Felt. She will take guests on a guided tour of the inns from the perspective of the spirits who speak to her at each inn. The weekend will include 2 nights' stay at one of three participating inns, the Spirit Walk through each inn (about 1 hour at each place), dinner at Jameson Tavern and a Q&A session with Eddita during dinner. There will be more information on the website as we firm up the details. October 19-20, 2007.

In November we are hosting a Gourmet Dinner and B&B Tour with 2 other inns. This weekend includes 2 nights' stay at one of the inns, breakfast each morning, a progressive dinner starting here and moving on to the other inns, a tour of the participating inns and all the amenities each inn offers. November 2-3, 2007

The inn is quickly filling up for Labor Day weekend. Don't miss the last 2 LL Bean concerts of the season...Bela Fleck on Saturday and Natalie MacMaster on Sunday!

Thos Mosher Company buys 2 Main Street houses.

Thos Mosher Cabinetmaker Co has purchsed the 2 houses at the corner of Main Street and West Street. (Formerly the Button Store and the Psychic Center.) The buidings are being readied for removal from the site and will be relocated elsewhere in Freeport to be used as homes once again.

Walking by yesterday was interesting to say the least. The back roof and second floor of the 'Button' house was on the ground in the parking lot between the 2 buildings. (These buildings are across the street from China Rose and Sakura restaurants.)

I'll have to bring the camera tonight and get some pix to post.

Thos Mosher has not revealed what the plans are for the site. More about that as info becomes available.

There's a new eclectic boutique on Main St in the former Foreside building. HJ Beausoleil carries jewelry, home decor and art. The renovation of the space is very well done. It is bright and airy inside, altho, I do miss the flower boxes on Main St!

LL Bean concert this weekend is Great Big Sea, a Celtic rock band. We're popping down to see them around 7:30. Next weekend, August 18th is the Indigo Girls.

Don't forget that Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is open for tours on Saturday from 10 AM-2 PM, weather permitting.

Hope you're enjoying your summer in Maine! The light is changing and the days are getting shorter, plan to spend some time here soon!
