Prospect Bay And Eastport Maine and Mustard

We have spent the last four nights in Cobscook State Park right off  Highway 1, which follows the coast of Maine.  We are working our way up to New Brunswick. 


From the park we are able to visit many of the small fishing villages along the coast.   


I want to be this mans best friend, He’s unloading his catch of lobster.


No fancy sailing or motor boats in the small fishing harbors, all working boats.


Everywhere there are lobster traps. 

Eastport, Maine is a small village consisting entirely of islands, and home to Raye’s Mustard Mill.

The sign on the side of building reads Sundown Casket Company.  I wanted Mike to check it out, maybe they were making a casket.  He said If I wanted to know what was going on inside I would have to do it myself.  That was not going to happen.  Maybe they are making caskets maybe not.


The woody was parked outside the casket company.

Eastport had a busy harbor with all the boats and fishermen on the pier.  They are fishing for mackerel.

Ray’s Mustard Mill is located in Eastport and is the last remaining traditional stone ground mustard mill.

Four generations of the Raye family have been grinding mustard on the coast of Maine since 1900.

They have won many national awards for there mustards.  The Food network  featured them this month on one of their shows.  Opps forgot.

Another great day.
