Kettle Cove, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

Hung 15 paintings at The Good Table Restaurant in Cape Elizabeth today, for brunch, lunch or dinner, a fabulous place to eat! Good Maine food and fabulous people! Right nearby is Kettle Cove State Park, a favorite for beach walks at low tide, sunsets and painting with friends. Took a nice walk to stretch after hanging my paintings. Nice sunny spring day with a cold wind. Went back to the restaurant later in the day and was rewarded with a rafter of turkeys under the bird feeders!
