Any excuse is a good excuse to take a drive along the back roads of Maine in the Fall. We needed carbon paper for an art project so dad and I put a sign on the door and took route 52 to Camden. Since I can remember there’s an antique store that always looks clean and nice at the intersection of 52 and 173 but I’ve never stopped because I’m in a hurry it’s never been the right time…but it was today. And you should stop too. Inside you’ll find well displayed out of print books, china, jewelry and stuff…perfect for dawdling a bit.
Just across from Grampa’s is this beautifully restored colonial home…in a perfect world I’d have photoshopped the trash can but hey…not today.
In Camden we ate at the old pharmacy location…Boyton and McKay’s I think it’s called. It’s my favorite sandwich shop in town and others must agree because it’s always busy with folks who aren’t merely passing through for a day or two. I had a hot gyros wrap and Dad had a roast beef wrap…both were good and left us with just enough appetite for a peanut butter swirled fudge brownie and coffee…it’s so easy to make me happy!
