the Sweet Spot of Summer pART six.

We took Sunday off, it was Our day to chill at Maranacook Lake, before the LONG drive back to Our Home, nestled in the super-green Blue Ridge Mountains of Western NC. After We finally got out of the Easy Street Lounge and made Our way back to Bobby Watson’s Camp, somewhere deep in the Summer Night, We got to sleep. The next morning, fueled by bacon and eggs, We played a special version of “Dancing Bobby Watson’s Song” for Bobby et al. on His front porch, overlooking the Lake: it’s Dancing Bobby Watson’s Song.

On this day, as well, We got to spend some time with some of Maine’s Finest Residents. The Attendees of the Performance the Night before were a Who’s Who of What’s What in the Maine-frame but the raucous activities and the mad-cap status which overflowed from the Easy Street Lounge (formerly the Speak Easy, owned and operated by Joey Gagne long, long ago), made it hard to concentrate on Anybody for very long. We were also set to embark on a Pontoon Boat ride all up and down Maranacook Lake and before that, Krekel and I took some personalized Paddle-boats out to Blueberry Island…

We were lucky to get to visit with Lindon, Greta Joseph, Scotty Perrow, Andy and Darlene (Bobby’s neighbors and owners of the Pontoon Boat “pARTy Barge”) and Sheila Meader. We also got to eat Lobster Rolls and Ice Cream before turning in for the Night. In the morning We were leaving at first light to head South after a brief but action-packed tour of Favorite Friends and Locations on the Eastern Tip of the Nation!
