Not So Wordless Wednesday - Pemaquid, Maine

We traveled up to Pemaquid, Maine to see the area where the ship "Angel Gabriel" wrecked in 1635.  Several ancestors were on this ship, but ended up in Essex County, Massachusetts since all survived the disaster of being blown off course to Maine by a hurricane.  I have a previous blog story about the shipwreck at this link: http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2009/11/other-mayflowers-voyage-5.html

if it looks familiar it's on the Maine State Quarter!

All adventures in Maine end with a seafood dinner.
We found an "in the rough" restaurant right in Pemaquid Harbor
(steamers, lobster, onion rings, chowder, Mmmmmm!)

  1. So cool will check previous post also. Yes many landed early, many not advertised as much as others.

  2. You ate at Shaw's I can recognize the area. We owned a summer house at Bristol for a while.
