6:14 am - Thursday - June 7th - Southwest Harbor, ME - 51º F, 100% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the southwest - partly cloudy skies with a forecast high today of 56º F.....a beautiful day today after almost 3 solid days of heavy cloud cover and just shy of 2 days of rain.

It was still raining when we woke up Wednesday morning, but it finally came to an end about 8 am.  We had planned to go hiking, but knew the foliage everywhere would be wet and that is not very conducive to hiking on a cold, heavily overcast day so we decided to stay home and do some chores like laundry, like dumping the black tank, like pulling up dandelions in our site, like finally cleaning the bugs off the windshield on the Newell.....we've only been stationary 3.5 weeks now, like reorganize your sock drawer......etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.....there are always chores to do, right?

That was pretty much our day, and sometimes you need a day like Wednesday.  We only had one obligation on meetup with our SDC friends and co-workers Steve and Tony and their spouses for dinner at Seafood Ketch over in Bass Harbor.  It is a favorite of Steve's (he lives right next door) and so even though Yelp gave them a tepid 3.5 stars we went on his recommendation........

.....we arrived for dinner at 5:30 pm followed closely by Steve, Tony and their wives.  We had a nice corner table with a view of Bass Harbor, and what do you know?  The sun finally made an appearance!  In the month of June they run a daily special offering 5 different entrees.  You pick 2 entrees for $30 total and they also include a bottle of wine!  TLE and I both ordered their fried shrimp and loved every single bite.....a bottle of Chardonnay was included.

We sat talking and laughing until almost 8 pm before we called it a night and headed for home.  What a great evening with good friends!  TLE and I would give Seafood Ketch a solid 4 stars.....I'm really glad we went.
