We really didn’t get to see much of Belfast yesterday, except for the laundromat and the co-op next door, which is very similar to Whole Foods. We woke up this morning to rain and a bit of fog and decided that since we could, we would just hang out here for another day. We had a lazy morning then took the dink into Belfast for a more thorough ‘look’ at the town and lunch.
One of the things we like most about this little town is that they have all kinds of art and historic info as you walk the main street. Much of the art is to be used…like a myriad of different kinds of bikes for kids to ride. We saw many kids enjoying them (ages 4 – 65, RRT).
So, here are some additional pictures of what the books call an ‘original’ Maine town. We sure did enjoy it.
Downtown Belfast Lobster Bike…just for tourists!
Note the custom cut curved stone curbing. It was on all the streets. Not sure if this is unique to Maine, but it is interesting anyway.

Bears are big here in Belfast!
Our plan is to leave in the morning but we will wait to see what the weather brings. We are supposed to have thunderstorms tonight so maybe they will push out the bad weather. We shall see!
