The Fourth of July, gave us a great opportunity to connect with family at our parent’s old homestead on Lake Winnipesaukee, in Center Harbor, New Hampshire. This is a wonderful part of the country to celebrate Independence Day although rain and storms extended most activities until the 5th.
Before heading home, back to Wisconsin, we elected to travel onto Maine for one additional stop. One of our old friends moved from Wisconsin to Maine just a year ago, so being this close – we just had to continue our eastward journey.
We concluded our official visits by dropping in on two frames in Maine….one in Portland and another a few miles north in Yarmouth. Casco Bay Frames & Gallery is a 35-year-old business operated by second generation owners, Tony and Heather Cox. The business dates back with three previous owners including Heather’s parents and takes its name from the bay that produces the harbor of Portland. The multi-talented framers that work at Casco Bay Frames are artists each in their own rights, with their work displayed throughout the frame shop.
