We visited the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport yesterday. They have in their collection trolleys, subway cars, and buses from as far away as Budapest and Australia, many of them lovingly and beautifully restored by a highly dedicated group of volunteers. In fact, we learned that there are only 5 paid staff there. Everyone else, from the restorers to the railcar operators to the docents, are volunteers.

This interurban station was originally located in Cumberland, I believe.

As promised, some peonies from the Maine Audubon Peony Bloom & Ice Cream Social. As you can see it is still a little early and most of the peonies haven’t quite opened yet, but probably will in the next few days.

Here’s my ice cream: strawberry ice cream with hot fudge, fresh strawberries, whipped cream and, of course, a cherry. Come back Saturday for some peonies.









So, the city’s been tearing up our road, Walton Street, the last couple of days. Overnight. They’ve been hack hammering and using all sorts of noisy machinery. I think they’re replacing the sewer line.

You have to applaud anyone who can do this kind of heavy construction overnight. If we had had our windows open it’d be pretty unbearable.

At least the weather’s been bad, and it’s been cold and rainy.
