Day 7

Today we found the Maine Lighthouse Museum. We got to start with a very neat educational movie about the area lighthouses and then walk through fantastic exhibits. They had this awesome paper for Jeremiah to do. You had to search for things in the museum and find out what they were to match up on the paper. If you got the right answers you got a lighthouse coloring book. I just love when museums do this because it really draws you in and makes you learn more things I think. Here is the paper...
After that we had heard about a tour boat. You could see 2 lighthouses and then they do a lobster fishing demonstration. We made our way to the wharf area and found a nice place to eat lunch. Jeremiah got a lobster quesadilla definitely not something you see in Indiana haha. He really liked it. Then we watched the boats in the harbor while Mom and Betty went shopping. It was a beautiful weather day. Then we went out on the boat. We got to see 2 lighthouses and one Mom had never saw so she was really happy...
 
Then we got to experience something we have never done before. The captain showed us how to pull in a lobster trap. It was really neat. Here is a picture of the catch...
I think there were 6 or 7 in the there and they were all keepers. It was sure fun to watch the process. Jeremiah really enjoyed it a lot. What a great day!

  4. That's what road trips are for - seeing and doing new things and trying new foods. Sounds like you're all having a wonderful time.
