Sightseeing & Lobster Dinner on Bailey Island

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.”

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.

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!
