Yesterday in Skowhegan

We took a drive over to Skowhegan yesterday. Our first stop was at the New Balance store--did you know that New Balance makes many of their shoes here in New England? I didn't know! Their factory outlet is a classic old school building, and they have several factories in the center of Skowhegan (also in Lawrence, MA and a few other US locations. One more reason to continue to buy their shoes!)

For lunch we were told that Kel-Mat Cafe was a good place to eat, but from the outside, and the name, it didn't seem too promising. However...

the inside of the building was gorgeous, an old Victorian house, beautifully refurbished.

Karen contemplates the menu--what to have for lunch?
We settled on Buffalo Chicken panini and Tomato Bisque. An excellent choice.

We need to walk that lunch off! A stroll along the banks of the mighty Kennebec River is just the thing.

The spirit of the tree? This face in the tree was totally a natural artifact.

And a stop at Lake George Park.

I could just go on and on with pictures of foliage and lovely old houses, but my camera batteries claimed to be "exhausted." A likely story.
