Sketching at the Lobster Pound


 For people on summer vacation in coastal Maine seem to like To Eat. Even better, to eat local seafood, even better to eat by the water, even better to eat outdoors on a breezy, clear day.
  
Sunday I hung out in my red folding chair & J in his green one under some pine trees at Swan Lake State Park (a peaceful lake that is a bit inland, with few motor boats!) Afterward, I got a hankering for seafood. I'm not big on going out to eat, however, with out of town guests, I do as the vacationers do.

So we headed south to Lincolnville Beach's Lobster Pound Restaurant. From our window table I sketched while waiting for my haddock. This sketch was done directly, but I added color later. The green gizmo in the distance is part of the transfer bridge at the landing for the Islesboro ferry.
