We took a brief sojourn back down Route 1 this week. This time it was to the Newagen Seaside Inn for a midweek break. We headed out Tuesday morning and stopped in Boothbay Harbor for lunch and a stop at a used book store. Later, after browsing through a few shops, we headed off to locate the inn on Southport Island. Our room was on the first floor with a deck overlooking a wide expanse of lawn and pathways to the pool, gazebo and the water. We spent the afternoon at the pool, and later we returned to our room, grabbed some snacks and our bottle of Riesling and moved to the deck to watch the evening settle in. About 8:30 or so, we headed to the pub to sample their fare. Elenka had the crab cakes, and I settled for a caesar salad and a bowl of clam chowder (in joke- I added this for Marchin. He might want to post on his Facebook page today. hahaha). After a restful night sleep and fine complimentary breakfast, we took a stroll to the water's edge for some photographs and sat in the cool gazebo and read for awhile. After check out, it was back to Boothbay Harbor for dogs at the Wannawaf Hot Dog stand. We had heard about it and read quite a few reviews. Let's leave it at this-- it didn't disappoint. This brief, pre-birthday get-a-way was just what was needed, seeing as Elenka will be with her mom and dad in Florida for pretty much the rest of the month. So, heading to Maine this summer? Looking for a delightful, seaside inn with plenty to do? You might want look into the Newagen Seaside Inn on Southport Island and sample a taste of Maine.
Celebrity Alert- One time I was with with Mom and her sister Millie and we were having a lobster and clams on the deck at Robinson's Wharf, and Margaret Hamilton(wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz) strolled in. Mom said she had a summer place in Newagen. That was so cool! http://www.newagenseasideinn.com/
