The southern coast of Maine is made up of lots of little peninsulas. Some are short, some are long, but I'd be willing to bet most--if not all--are beautiful. Harpswell, just off of Brunswick, is one such idyllic peninsula. Generations ago my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather owned a big chunk of Harpswell, alas I'm descended from his daughter so that land didn't get passed on. Still I feel a strange sense of peace and belonging when I make the drive out winding route 123. The Casco Bay views off of Harpswell are stunning and Dolphin Marina is no exception...
Just as I Facebook sourced my dad's birthday cake, I also found out birthday dinner spot view Facebook when I spotted some awesome looking blueberry muffins on a friend's FB page. Turns out blueberry muffins are something of a signature at Dolphin Marina. Our waitress told us that the muffins were a nod to the days when the marina used to serve breakfast. They don't do breakfast anymore, but I sure am glad they still make those muffins, because they were worth the ride themselves.
