Water, water everywhere

It's still raining!!!!  We do get a clear morning once in awhile, and Sunday we used one of those to go searching for one of the many waterfalls in Maine. Along the way we found one of the many covered bridges in Maine. Very picturesque. 

One warm and sunny day we will explore this area. But this time we continued driving. Along the way we kept seeing was stone walls, built from stones cleared from the fields, and stacks of firewood, drying for the next winter. I think you have to be tough to live out here.
We drove on to Tobey Falls and took a short walk from the road to the falls. This 8 foot falls supposed to be a combination of a slide falls and a horsetail falls. Of course with all this rain, the "horsetail" part has been overtaken in the "slide" part. It was lovely, even on this overcast day.
We had driven an hour to get there, so while we were in the area we went looking for a second falls which was supposed to be nearby. We followed the directions but could not find it. But the state of the roads discouraged extensive searching.
Oh well, we enjoyed the one we found. The grounds around Tobey Falls are filled with lush new growth, like tasty fiddlehead ferns.
We weren't in a position to eat the ferns so we stopped at a small restaurant on the way home and shared a lobster roll. It was pretty good, much better than the first one we tried in Maine a couple of weeks ago. But it sure needed some warm butter.
Then we headed home. In the rain. Again.
