Boothbay Railroad Village
Autumn, especially October, is a beautiful season to spend some time in Maine. The colors are spectacular.
Come feeding time, there is plenty of good eating to be had at the annual Boothbay Fall Foliage festival - over a weekend in early October. Chowder, fish cakes, caramel corn, sausages, fresh cut french fries, baked goods, lemonade, and all sorts of other fair fare.
Most fun was the caramel corn guy. Big brass kettle. Stirring the corn with a paddle until it pops and then pouring into the kettle and mixing in the caramel.
There other reasons to visit Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor in October. Far less crowds than over the summer and all the stores are having great sales to unload their inventory before the close until next year.
