On a beautiful and sunny day we said goodbye to Wayne and his wonderful cottage in Rollo Bay. He had been a most wonderful host and the cottage so lovely that it was hard to leave! We had originally intended to stop in for a visit with family in Halifax, but this did not work out as our relatives were ill. So, instead we packed up the car and started on our way home. Our new plan-to make our way through the United States with a stop to see Mount Washington-weather permitting.
As we drove on we bemoaned the fact that we were stuck in the car on such a beautiful day. Along the road and on a whim we diverted our path to allow for an overnight visit to Old Orchard Beach in Maine where we could take advantage of the stellar weather.
This was a wonderful choice as it allowed us to visit the spectacular beach. we were able to stay in an authentic cape cod style home right on the beach where we had wonderful views. New England Clam chowder was on the menu as well as an exploration of the densely populated area!
