Day 33, Saturday, Oct 4, Kennebunkport, Maine

We stayed at our hotel in Wells, throughout the day on Saturday, enjoying the opening sessions of the General Conference of the Church made available through the Church Web site.

At 7:30 pm on Saturday I drove to Sanford, Maine, some 12 miles away and was able to attend the Priesthood session which was broadcast to the Sanford LDS chapel. There were about 30-35 men and boys in attendance. I had a brief conversation with one of the local brethren who introduced himself and asked about our visit. I was able to share with him that I had served in Derry and Dover, New Hampshire and in Millinocket and Bangor, Maine back in 1960-62.

We didn't take any pictures on Saturday, but include this photo taken during our drive through Kennebunkport on Friday. I guess you can appreciate that being from the Southwest, we are facinated by the sea. This is a place, open to the public, called Walker's Point.

This parking area of a small business in downtown Kennebunkport, with its flowering fence caused Linda to ask for a picture.

So, what is it like at home for the Maine lobster fisherman? We don't really know, of course, but this caught our eye as we drove slowly through some of the side streets near the Kennebec harbor on Friday.
