Maple Syrup and Fresh Oysters

Five gallons of Maine maple syrup -- just enough for the 2011 season!

A rainy spring day: time to head north to pick up our five-gallon supply of Maine maple syrup for the 2011 season.  And, along the way, to enjoy some of the fabulous fresh oysters at the Damariscotta River Grill — about 40 minutes north of Coveside.
