What do you do when it snows a foot during a pandemic quarantine?

Well, if you live in Maine….

You have a snow sculpture contest!

That strange looking blob turned into this:

A goldfinch on a nest.

It gets my vote….

But here are some other entries.

Small snowman.

Snow frog.

Large snowman.

Musical snowman.

Upside down snowman.

Snow horse.

Snow bunny.

Snow pig?

Snow mermaid.

And a snow public health advisement…

Someone posted this as well …..

I love it, but have a feeling it was pulled off the net and not a local entry.

A+ for originality though.

Cheers!

White Mountains trip Day 6… The Bethel Inn.

 

After the rock museum we headed over to the Bethel Inn, which everyone we’d talked to had recommended for lunch.

It was a beautiful old building.

And I thought, oh yes… this will be good.

We headed inside…

And didn’t see a soul.

We wandered around…

Found a replica of the giant snowman Bethel is famous for…

A gazebo…. and finally a person.

She told us because it was technically off season, none of the restaurants were open that day. But please go downstairs and check out the wonderful pub.

Oh, sure.

You mean the one where we can’t get anything to eat or drink?

Thanks.

We’d love to…

With further discussion we discovered this inn was on our timeshare list and we could stay in one of their condos.

Which would be great.

As long as I remember to book in season… when they can feed us.

P.S. food people….

I want credit for this post. I tried to have lunch!
