Market Friday, Maine Style

in #marketfriday2 years ago (edited)


Bar Harbor, Maine. I went back there once again. Who could resist that peaceful piece of Americana sitting on the edge of Mount Desert Island? There is a marina at the end of Main Street where you can grab a tour to see the puffins or seals, and if you are adventurous, I know a boat that takes you whale watching. Of course, that is a tale for another day. Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise! That is me!) We have arrived in town and are ready to wander about freely. This is a picture of the inside of the Route 66 Restaurant. Things to eat, things to buy. It is like going to the museum for lunch. Then again, I am never sure if I should offer an entrance fee or bless myself when I walk in. Sometime in her history, I believe those stain glass windows had a church attached to it. I hope you are hungry!

Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:

How to Participate:

1. Go to the market! Any market will do! Food, Clothing, Plant or Animal, if you wish. You can go to the zoo or an art auction. Anywhere or anything that you pay money for a service. I once went to a nail salon.
2. Take pictures! Be creative (or not)
3. Tell us a little bit about the market, what brought you here?
4. Post the picture(s)
5. Don’t forget to hashtag it! #MarketFriday by @dswigle
6. Drop the link to your post here so I can easily find them

It is always interesting to see the different markets around the globe! C’mon! Show me your market shots! I eagerly await them!

Go to the end of this alleyway and you will bump right into it. Looking forward to it, but, trying to keep it light. I hear that there is lobster for dinner tonight.

Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. They will all be in one place!! Thank you! ❤

The waitress was adorably charming. As much as one could be while working in a church turned museum sort of restaurant. I couldn't resist the siren singing, the call of the sea, so I ordered a lobster roll, french fries and cole slaw. Don't judge.


The blueberries are in and everything is coming up with blueberries in it. ... I am walking down the street when I am kidnapped by the wafting pleasures of a freshly baked pie. Yes, please. The open window as you are passing by hooks me every single time.

I poked my head in here because the ships caught my eye from the street. I get up close and personal with one and can see that these are so very well made. I am not prepared to carry one back home and frankly, I don't want to dust it. So, that makes that decision easier. I promise to come and visit it periodically.

I hope you will join us as we share different markets. It has been such a pleasure to see markets from all over the world. Who doesn't love to see what they are selling? There is always a curiosity attached to foreign ingredients, different produce or any product sold. So, yes! I would love to see yours! So don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery, art galleries, wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Don't forget to use the hashtag #marketfriday and @dswigle.

I love this store, Into the Woods. All of their carvings are from fallen trees, they don't chop any down to make anything and 100% of their profit goes to land conservation.

Ribbet collage.jpg

Just a few of the many things they have in the store. Bowls, plates, toys, benches, canoes... you name it, they probably have it. Did I mention how I love this store? I do.

STOP!! BRAIN TEASER AHEAD!!

Question: There are two people. How they can divide a cake into two pieces fairly by using a knife only one time?




source

Answer: First of all, one of them divides the cake into two pieces. Then, the other person chooses the first piece. Therefore, both of them will be satisfied.

As always, there must be a flower. Always. To color my world. This flower is dedicated to #FridaySkyBlue #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world every day.


Blue on pink, without the heartache
Heartache
Who knew life could be so good?

And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time! A small town walkabout is always a lot of fun! As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit and for supporting the #MarketFriday challenge! We will sit for a moment or three and then, we will wander down to the dock to see a man about a lobster. Now, you just sit on that bench and tilt your face up towards the shine! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!

Let the sun shine in on your life
So the joy may touch your soul




I have been discovering new places, some right in my own area! This week, I went to a new farmers market that was two minutes from my house and while I was there, discovered another farm that sells eggs. Yay! I love to share and be shared with! I am intrigued by different cultures. It is exciting and yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery store, the local marketplace or even an art gallery, a kite festival! Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Be different if you wish! It does not have to be a traditional market! We will love it! I promise you! Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post again and again, I am encouraged by you, for the time you take to visit, comment or even upvote. For all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful. Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Let's hold hands around the globe and make this earth really spin. Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Sort:  

you are so making me want to visit there, your photos make it seem such a fun and idyllic place to visit
Whale watching puffins or seals, ohh yes I would want to do all of that and explore the streets there they look so charming

As for the brainteaser I was thinking of a more complicated mathematical approach to work out how to cut the cake so it was exactly in Half, you approach is so much easier lOl

here is my market Friday post for this week, Strecthing the term market yet again https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@tattoodjay/market-friday-getting-items-from-or-to-the-market

!tip

Having been one of nine kids I can tell you that this approach worked best for my mom. You can use all the mathematical equations you want, but to have the person cut and the other person select the piece, there cannot possibly be a more fair way. Sometimes we overthink the simplest of things. I know I do.

I have no doubt that Bar Harbor is a place that you are made for and if you should ever move up closer to your kids, it will be an easy D
drive. You have the entire Maine Coastline available to you and it is absolutely incredible. The whale watching and the rest of the observations of sea life is something that you don't want to miss out on if you have never been. I'm pretty simple and easily amused. I love the narrow alleyways and you are right because there was always a surprise just around the corner in them. Thank you so much for your unwavering support and friendship. As always well, I wish you a most wonderful day.

It has been one of the biggest pleasures, hosting the #SteemUSA site with you!

#MarketFriday loves you!

!tip

Yes I agree your way is simple and totally fair ;)
I did look it up when I saw your post and I think with good traffic its only a 6 hour drive so would definitely be doable and it is added to my wishlist your post and this comment so makes me want to go there ;)
The narrow alleyways remind me of some parts of Europe I always love places with streets like that

!tip

Yes!!! Some of those alleyways in Holland and Belgium (and Czech Republic to name a few were so narrow, the mirrors to the van had to be folded all the way in. Hello???

Totally doable and you will not be sorry. It is a fun place although not filled with adrenaline like some trips, except for the boat trip... now, how are you getting LuLu on that boat again?

And Boston. Do you go to Boston? You may even like it better than NYC because of the exceptional history there. That is really close to them. I will say that the weather will be miserable up there, so you better start hunting winter houses out. Mine is ten minutes from the beach, but, the prices are so high now, it may be prudent to sell it now and buy again at a different time. There is no cheap haven anymore.

Ohh yeah I loved exploring those small alleys and side streets in those places as well, infact most places I used to visit, I did see the main tourist spots but I loved getting off the beaten track and getting a real feel for the place.
I am happy without adrenaline these days and as for getting Lulu on a boat, something I just wont try, I think if I ever visit there and particularly for the boat trip that will be me alone I won't try for the impossible ;)
Boston I have visited twice but for meetings and conferences and I have seen very little of it, and its not that far from where we will be so I have already made it clear I am planning on a few day trips there, I will be making a list of places to go and see there

I wish I could plan for an afford a winter house but thats not going to be an option for me, I may just have to be a hermit over winte rlOL

Just head towards the aquarium and you can walk everywhere from there. The docks are right there and they have fishing, and all the sightseeing boats there also! Plus, the old historical part of town is right there. It is one of the most fun cities to go to.

Thanks for all the info I do hope and plan to get to see it one day :)

Well, your people will know it better, but, I didn't want to shove more an more at you all the time. Although that big brain of yours could probably take it. :)

Once you go, you will be bit by the history bug- all over again.

wow, wow, wow!!! What a place to visit @dswigle. Where do I begin? Well of course the food! Those fries and the lobster roll....geesh to die for....sigh. I'll take two or three to go, lo Noticed the blueberry pie window, hmmm did you stop there :) The wood shop, I love it!! Such craftsmanship, those bowls are beautiful. This looks like a place I definitely need to visit, thanks for sharing new destinations! I haven't traveled the eastern shores, definitely need to!

Well, thank you so much! The Eastern seaboard has so many delightful places, especially New England - all historical and many have kept much of that charm with the Victorian houses and many original features on the houses and towns.

Even Charleston, SC, and Savanah, Georgia are heavenly little havens... I could go on and on. The Maine lobster is what I grew up on - being from Connecticut, so you cannot image how shocked I was to taste a rock lobster. The meat on the northern lobster is much sweeter. Yes! I did eat just a tiny piece of blueberry pie with coffee and then blueberry tea... it was a wonderful visit.

I hope you get to go - but avoid going until after Labor Day or before mid June. The tourists make the trips crowded along with the roads... so I usually avoid it then. :)

Thank you for stopping by and for leaving such kind words. Much appreciated! As always, have an awesome weekend!

That's a seriously cool market and restaurant. I'm a lot nearer the other end of Route 66. The last two little bits of the original road are between Oatman and Kingman AZ and near Seligman, AZ. That little stretch is red, made with local rock.

I basically get myself on the highway at some point every year, there is some great places to see (Petrified Forest National Park-which encompasses the old Painted Desert park) not the least of it.

I think I need to give this contest a swing. There's a place in the nearby high country that I probably ought to visit....

Thanks for a great post and a great contest.

Most excellent! I am glad that you gave a little bit of history on Route 66 because a lot of people believe that used to be a road and don't realize it still exists. I leave them in Gilbert Arizona near the old Williams Air Force Base and in Glendale close to Luke Air Force Base. So I did get the opportunity to see the many Treasures of Arizona, which I must not lie and tell you that I was very disappointed to be sent out there, however, I can say that that was probably one of the best places I have ever lived. There's so much Beauty in the landscape that is taken for granted. It is not necessarily a dried-out dust bowl like many presume. The colors on the sunsets are brilliant and I don't think I have ever seen a snowfall more beautiful than that that has been seen on the desert floor with cactuses. I actually saw that up in Sedona and it was like magic. I left the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest and it is so tempting to want to pick up things and take them home with you let me know that must never happen and you have to leave it there or one day there will be no more Petrified Forest.

I want to thank you again for your support and you're very thoughtful words. I appreciate it very much and as always I hope you have a blessed wonderful day!

How come the food always looks so good on your posts? Just so yummy. I know my bunch always give me a hassle whenever I want to get a quick picture in! After all this time they still don't understand blogging lol.

Surely no one could refuse the pies! I love the wood store with their nautical items especially. Life is indeed too short for heartache!

Congrats on being the rally vote! Great post as always!

Well, I have to admit, I only send you the good looking food. The slop, I pretty much keep to myself. :) Nobody wants to look at that, right? For some reason, my kids don't mind me taking a shot or two of dinner, but, I am pretty quick and get in and out.

Nobody walked by those pies! Is it any wonder? I could actually smell them all the way down the street and knew before I saw them that I had to have a piece! Who could blame me! Not to be outdone by the blueberry tea! The wooden store, as you know, is one of my favorites and I spend hours and hours there not even having to buy something to feel satisfied. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words and your congratulations. I appreciate it. As always, I wish you a wonderful night.

#MarketFriday loves you!

You did send me one of those pies right? You know, how you promised...I been looking every day and nothing.... Maybe tomorrow, I guess!

Keep looking! I am sure it is in there somewhere!

And after browsing your post, I couldn't get the fries and coleslaw out of my mind. 🤣

Love the alley shot too

Oh, aren't you sweet??? I love when you bring me a #MarketFriday post!

To be sure, those french fries were made fresh from the potato, skins and all to add a little extra crunch. I love them that way.

All the older New England towns are filled with interesting, fun and kitschy alleyways that turn into mini towns almost. Some of the alleys connect at the backside and open up into a courtyard. Next time, I will take a picture of that so you can see what I mean. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by with a hello and for dropping your link! Much appreciated!

Truth! Who needs more work when I can play my day away?

It is a cute little town and i used to go with my family in the summer. We lived in Connecticut, so a nice getaway.

I want to thank you for stopping by and leaving your words. You are so very lovely and I enjoy your comments. As always, have a splendid weekend!

Thanks and most welcome Denise. 💕 Appreciated. Your post are fantastic and a delight to read. I have been in Houlton and Bangor, Maine. My Aunt used to live outside Houlton and I always loved visiting there.

Oh, how cool!! I have an aunt who lives in Ellsworth, right outside of Bangor and I loved visiting her there, although truth be told, we used to go to Bangor as it was more exciting! Bangor is less than 50 miles away from Bar Harbor, and I know it takes me only about 45 minutes to get there unless it is summer - then an hour to an hour and a half is not unusual.

Good for the sagging economy up there, but, it makes me want to not go there at that time of year! Such a lovely corner of the world! Thank you again and I hope you have a most wonderful weekend!

I love what "Into The Woods" is doing with the fallen trees and putting their profits into land conservation. They have some lovely peices there. I'm hoping to get a post up and will update my reply with a link when I do! 😉
Here it is https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@deerjay/market-friday-at-valley-view-farms

I was thinking about the lobster and the blueberry pie the entire way up there! :)

I love that store, honestly. They have such unique merchandise and then to plow the profits into conservation? Yes! I will support them all that I can. Oh, aren't you sweet? You even have a post for me! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello and drop a few nice words AND your link! Have I told you how awesome you are?

Here's the one where I went looking at the market for toilet bowl and other bathroom stuff.

You're welcome. Tanks for the tip.
Yes, I've been Portland but I thought that was Oregon and back then...
woohoo.. no sales tax.
Have a good weekend.

Hehe! It probably was Oregon then. Oregon still has no sales tax. :) However, it has one of the highest tax rates on personal income in the nation.

There is no free ride - obviously.

Yes, indeed.

Shouldn't it be free somewhere though? I hate to waste all my money on taxes!

Yes, I hate paying more taxes. At least I don't smoke, so I pay less duties. :-)

I have to admit, my taxes are reasonable, although I wouldn't mind if they went down! :)

Oh, yes! I don't smoke so I save big $$ right there!

I do remember all those bird houses from your last trip there! Only thing missing to look like the ones my grandfather use to make would be some bright colored red, green, and yellow!

I can see why you love it wood has such warm and inviting feeling to it .

gardenfresh.jpg

I got to be real lazy today and skip the market. Ended up picking some missing ingredients I wanted from my garden. Parsley, oregano, and one of those two tomatoes for tonight!

Yes!! You have a great memory! I alway take a picture of the hundreds af birdhouses they make there. I would live to see one painted, although the natural patina of wood is gorgeous!

Smart cookie!! Brilliant thinking! The garden would be my first choice! As always, i wish you a great weekend !

I posted this town last year, probably in the summertime, but, I am sure some other people have also. It is a popular place and there is actually a real Route 66- it is a road in the United States that runs a good length of the East to West route.

Hey Denise, long time since I did a #marketfriday post but here's my offering for today. I've just about exhausted all the local markets so here's a twist. #vegetarian meals that look like meat?

Love those old antique shops and the burger looks great. The best burger I ever ate was back in 79' in a little town south of Albany, New York.
Pure Americana just like the above restaurant.

https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@molometer/vegetarian-meals-that-look-like-meat#@shabaperween/ptgm7d

Hi there, Michael! @molometer

I have been so remiss in visiting!! I get so busy and do the needful and get off, but, real life is slowing down a tad, only to get busy again with the summer. I notice fewer people on with the coming of summer. I am trying to make more of a concerted effort of getting around as I miss hearing from everyone, but, you have to be a friend to get a friend, yes?

You never have to do just stores. Ha! Look at mine. I even went to the aquarium one day. Any place you have to pay for. I went to the movies. The post office may be next! LOL Oh, yes. I must get creative as I have to do it every week. I brought you all to a nail salon and I still haven't gone with a haircut yet. LOL There are endless possibilities, but, I like this twist that you brought us. I am intrigued by the cover.

I want to thank you for stopping in and leaving your always kind and thoughtful words and also for dropping the link! Much appreciated! As always, I wish you a most wonderful weekend!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Haha I wish I had known this before and did wonder why you posted from the cruise ships etc? lol Dooh!

You never have to do just stores. Ha!

I feel liberated hahahhah!

Thanks for the !tip :-)

PS Have you got the Brave browser?

No, I don't have Brave? Should I have?

It is my fault. I finally put up rules or guidelines because I never clearly defined that you can go off the path and get creative is you wish. I think it is a tad more fun to jump off it now and then. :) well, most of the time for me.

Well, you liberated man! I can hardly wait to see what is up next! :)

Hi Denise, the Brave browser blocks all adverts and works much faster than Chrome. Plus you can earn BAT tokens when you use it. I've earned $27+ already in just a few minutes of using it on Coinbase.

Thanks for the clarification. Watch this space lol.

Do you have a referral or link for Brave? Or is there none?

The Brave browser is open source and you can download it in seconds from the website. https://brave.com/

Next you may want to read my post below on how to earn. Super simple and takes minutes. You will be added to the wait list. I got mine within 24 hours.

Let me know how you get on or if you need advice.

Oh my God! Photo with the blue bench ... I'm not saying anything. I can not keep silent, beautiful post!
With shame I also have to put my link: Some Good Places For Friday's Shopping

Hi, Dan! @bluemoon I was looking at the picture, trying to figure out what was wrong with the blue bench photo. LOL Other than the fact that I didn't straighten it too well. I wish I had taken a little more time with it, but, always in a rush.

I rather like the kind of buildings in New England (I am from a different State, but, this part of the country) with their shingles that hold up well against the sea and salt air. They always paint in happy colors, giving off a little more joy. Or perhaps, it is what I am used to seeing as I grew up with it. :)

I am glad you liked the post, it is a fun place to go to until summer comes and it is full of tourists.

You have never put out a bad post for #MarketFriday in your life. They are always wonderful and well thought out pieces. I am sure it will be as awesome as always and have some of my favorite music! You never disappoint!

As always, I want to thank you for stopping by, leaving your words and dropping a link to your post! Have a fabulous weekend, Dan!

Oh, thank you so much! You surely have a great memory! I love that store and go there every time I go near this town.

I did enjoy my dinner, although I didn't show pictures of my lobster. Lunch was good and I always get the lobster there as it comes right off the boat at the docks!

What a cool town.Love your shots. I understand why all the cool people go there. Hint hint. Now I have to make it to Maine:)

We can have cake, a big one, which we will cut only once and equally in two.

Here is my contribution to the day. I think it is still Friday in Hawaii. I think I am also still 22 there:):):)
https://steemit.com/haiku/@prydefoltz/beauty-from-another-world-haiku-and-market-friday-w-dswigle

I am positive that it was 11 pm somewhere in the world!! Hey! Didn't you hear? Saturday is the new Friday?? Ask anyone! We seriously have begun to do #MarketFriday all week. I find if funny, and even better is they post it and then drop the post on Friday. I'm easy. But, honestly, it's fun and yes! I have found lots of places I want to go now.

Of course, there will be cake! Be real! Halvies. Just the way I like it. Can we wash it down with some of their blueberry tea? They make it local and if we are lucky, there will be some left when we get there. I know that Route 66 is a kitschy little place, but, I still manage to stop in every time I get around there. :)

Love love your post, especially that narrow street lane... looks really inviting:-D that lobster must have been delicious :))))

Posted using Partiko Android

Yes, the streets and alleyways are very narrow and a lot of New England towns Most of turned into pedestrian zones where no cars are allowed and they have some really interesting places. It is a fun little town and has a very nautical feel to it as it's basically an island. I like the fact that you can walk right down to the water and there's a lot of lobster Shacks just waiting for you to walk up and order one. Fresh off the boat. Thank you for taking the time and effort to stop in and say hello and leave your words.

Thank YOU!

What a quaint market with great homemade goodies, no wonder you enjoy shopping I would too if we had lovely shopping areas like this Denise.

Great photography from tall ships, carved birds, lobster rolls and blueberry pies around each corner another surprise, most enjoyable outing.

Well, I am so glad that you enjoyed yourself and I must say that I did to you when I was there. Shopping is abundance here with no shortage of town, but oh, you have the advantage of having nature surround you. That wins every time. In my home that I live in oh, I do have neighbors, however I have many Open Spaces surrounding the area which is wonderful for a wildlife.

I think that I take for granted that there's all kinds of shopping and shouldn't because there was a time where I would have to drive almost an hour to get to a decent store. So, I try to remember that as I am walking about in these cute little Havens. It is fun and living on the seashore brings many more of these stores to you. I can't say that I would want to live in this town all year long but it's fun to visit. Thank you so much for stopping by and dropping your words. It is most appreciated! As always, I hope you have a most wonderful day.

Visiting from time to time is what makes it fun, when it is on your doorstep all year round you tend not to notice the quaintness of the surroundings.

Have a wonderful weekend, I will have to plan a little better to join in again soon Denise I do enjoy seeing unusual little places like yours.

That is probably true. I live in the Washington, DC area, so this is a treat to come back to New England and visit the various little towns around. I was born and raised outside of New York City (in Connecticut) but, I know that makes no sense to you. :) These little towns are all over and I look forward to seeing the usual or the unusual in your area. Nothing is usual to those who don't live there. ;)

Thank you for stopping in and saying hello and leaving your kind words behind. As always, I wish you a wonderful weekend!
