Boothbay on Sunday

It was another perfect day in paradise, temps in the 80's, blue sky, full sun and we just loitered around town. We went into town to get a Sunday paper, the New York Times (oh well...) and spent the morning reading it. We took a dink ride over to the place we had lobster rolls yesterday and bought sea scallops which were absolutely fresh at the fish market behind the Boothbay Lobster Wharf. That necessitated getting a suitable baking dish and we shopped around town until we found one shaped like a ship. Such are the things that occupy you in paradise.
Ann found a recipe by Jacques Pepin and the results were out of this world, much better than at any local restaurant. So we sipped wine and had our scallops as the sun went down, hard to imagine a better non-sailing day. Tomorrow we're headed for Richmond Island, south of Portland for an overnight stay. We've never been there so we're a little anxious but we'll see how it is.
