We survived Hurricane Sandy without even so much as a power outage. Lots of wind and rain, but more like a moderate Nor’easter than the punishing storm that hit further south. Sandy did make for some spectacular surf at Reid State Park, however. Here are some shots Tom took this afternoon.
This Saturday, June 11, will be a busy one in Bath and Georgetown. Reid State Park in Georgetown will host its first (annual?) “Reidfest” — with top local bands appealing to a variety of musical tastes, refreshments, and the promise of fine weather at the beach. For more information, click here. The music gets started at 2 pm and runs until the musicians don’t want to play any more. Visitors are suggested to bring blankets, lawn chairs, snacks, and (of course) bug spray — though the mosquitos aren’t too bad so far this year.
In Bath, the 10th annual home and garden tour, sponsored by Sagadahoc Preservation, will be held. Lovely home and beautiful gardens will be on view. Folks who stay at a local B&B (including Coveside) get half-price admission to the tour, as well as coupons for reduced price meals at most local restaurants, and price reductings on lodging (see below). For more information, check with Sagadahoc Preservation. The tour runs from 10:30 to 3:30.
As for Coveside: We still have a three rooms available this weekend. And the weather promises to be fine for either event, or for just lounging on the porch. These last-minute rooms will be available at a 30% discount if you ask for it when making a reservation. New reservations only, please. For availability and room selection, check here.
Perusing the web, we ran across lovely images of Reid State Park by Scott Snyder, a professional photographer based in Concord, New Hampshire.
