Quick Trip to Camden

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!
