Saturday was the best day we've had in weeks. Warm with a breeze, but not too much. A friend was showing his paintings at the New Castle Arts and Crafts Fair, so we headed in that direction, along with everyone within hundreds of miles who had an RV or kayaks. (Fortunately, most of them either turned off at the "Sea Coast" exit, or continued past New Castle to somewhere in Maine.)
But New Castle itself (a city spread amongst a bunch of little island) was relatively calm. There were lots of cyclists, walkers... and dogs. I didn't realize until I got home that I was so enchanted by the arts and crafts that I didn't take any pictures of those. They were also having a Strawberry Social. Perhaps that would have been worth trying. Silly me.
It was the yellow barge that prompted this photo-from-the-car window. Even though it was disappointing to have it obscured by the wires, I thought the conglomeration of signs on the post were interesting.
Most of the buildings were "vintage." With some in better repair than others. I did like this white clapboard cottage with it's wild perennials and starfish in the window. The variety of textures may show up in a painting soon..
I took this picture from the moving car. It probably had a fabulous door and entry way... but what fun to find the wire "ART" and a date tile. 1790. Amazing.
