Hendricks Hill Museum

One of my last outings from Boothbay was over the bridge to Southport where I found this small community museum open.

Upstairs in the bedroom I found some quilts not displayed very well but I could get a close look even though they were folded. The pink sashed basket quilt looked in good order.

The crib quilts were nice too with the last one being made out of cheater cloth.

Then their was this one I think it was a Linsey woolsey but since I have never seen one in the flesh before I will stand to be corrected.

Sewing ephemera on the wall.
This is a nice little museum with plenty to keep the men interested too and all they ask is for a donation.

My last lobster dinner was here overlooking the wharf where small lobster men were unloading their catch and it was being taken straight into the kitchen. You can't get much fresher than that and it did taste good

Goodbye Boothbay I had a wonderful relaxing time and ate very well indeed.


  1. Sue, I'm impressed with all the territory you are covering. Glad you are having a great time. Thanks for taking us along on your outings.

  2. I am enjoying following you along on your adventure, I will be up in that area soon so may have to stop and have a lobster dinner ! Love that basket quilt and the tulips to the right...
    I love tulips! Have a safe trip home

  3. Looks like a lovely area Sue. I hope it was all that you expected.

  4. I don't believe it! That was the first place that B&L took us to for lobster rolls! Bobbie used to be involved with the Heritage Society and the Museum, what a shame you weren't able to catch up with them they would have loved to show you around.
