Why did we drive to Topsham to get our “hair done”? It’s because we lived there for 10 years and established a few roots. I always enjoyed going to Pete’s Barbershop and like to “frequent” his establishment whenever I’m in the area. Plus, he does a good job cutting my hair. Judy’s hair dresser from days gone by is no longer in the area, but she uses Peggy’s fine establishment. On top of all of that, it gives us another opportunity to get together with Mike and Peggy.
However, we couldn’t manage to squeeze a free meal out of Evringhams because, as Mike put it, Peggy refused to go shopping. So that meant that we had to go on a hunting trip for our lunch. We drove over the river and through the woods to the quaint little town of Richmond. Richmond was once a thriving little mill town, along the shores of the Kennebec River, which is beginning to re-emerge with some small manufacturing businesses relocating to the area. The downtown area has been “cleaned up” with a couple of nice little eateries.
We bagged and tagged our lunch at the Railway Café; a nice Maine crab roll with a helping of home made potato salad and an Iced Tea (Judy) and a Sam Adams Larger (me). Unfortunately, it was another overcast day so we didn’t find any picturesque moments along the way even though we traveled all the back roads.
Upon returning to Mike and Peggy’s abode, we engaged in conversation for an hour or so before turning our noses southward toward Wild Duck Campground. A nice hair cut, a nice meal, and a nice visit; who could ask for more?
Today we’re “fixinto” head south along route one to see what we can find that just might interest us. One place that we’ve never visited is the Kittery Trading Post. We’ll, also, look for picture worthy scenes along the southern coast of Maine. Who knows, we may even find some “Bushes” along the way.
