Blast From the Past Diner - Waterboro, Maine

Blast From the Past Diner...

Here are photos of a super diner we discovered on our trip home from Maine this weekend. It was a worthy stop and the prices were great.

We had coffee, ice cream and carrot cake, and it was delicious. I'd go there again just to try more of the food. This place was retro and clean as a whistle. It was full of wonderful antique framed car adds and it had neat miniature lighted buildings....lots of glass blocks which reflected the red and white tiles and all the polished chrome. It was spacious for a diner, too.

I took pics of the reflections in the glass blocks. I loved this place!

This is a photo of the table tops in the booths. Just sooooo retro!

Of course, there had to be a gum ball machine shaped like a rocket to go with the sign and name of the diner! And, there was a large jute box, but unfortunately it was out of order right now.

Oh, and some of the cars in the parking lot were awesome, too.

Below are posts and pictures of our trip to Parsonsfield, Maine

In Parsonsfield, Maine just up the road from the church was this magnificent home. We were fascinated by it because it seemed out of place way out there.

Parsonsfield, Maine

Kevin read about a ghost town in Maine. On Saturday we decided to take a drive up there to check it out. This was the first beautiful weather day we've had in ages. The place had a lovely peacefulness about it, and I had a blast taking pictures. I would have loved to have seen the inside of the church.

Old Town House Cemetary/Parsonsfield, Maine

Behind the old town house parsonage building there was a sweet sounding brook. I spent some moments just standing there listening to the birds chirping and the relaxing sound of water splashing. I snapped the above picture before I walked away. Next, I explored the adjoining grave yard.

I don't make a habit of tromping around grave yards, but this place seemed so peaceful and almost inviting. While I walked around shooting my pictures I was consciously thinking "I'm in a grave yard - I don't want to disturb anyone. I won't stay long." The grave yard was from the 1800's.

Anyway, I was quite startled because when I got home and examined my photos more closely there was a disturbing revelation. The reflection in the little brook seems to have a face or being staring out of the water. The face looks a bit concerned and even stern. I really didn't expect this.
Here is the photo cropped to better show the reflection. There really is a face in the water!!!!
