Boothbay Harbor, Maine, August 21, 2011, 7:47 pm
Boothbay Harbor, Maine (population 2,300) is located on the central coast of Maine and is a popular tourist destination. My wife’s family has been vacationing there for over 40 years. I am a relative newcomer, having been to Boothbay for the past 10 years. Boothbay is filled with quaint places; my favorites include Down East Ice Cream Factory, Brown’s Warf Restaurant, Fudge Factory, Romar candlepin bowling, and Thursday evening band concerts on the library lawn. In short, a perfect New England destination for a summer vacation.
This was taken from a memorial overlooking the harbor that is a great place to view stunning sunsets. Our Lady Queen of Peace church donated a parcel of land to the Fisherman’s Memorial Committee in 1983. The committee created a bronze fishing dory (small boat) dedicated to the memory of the over 229 fishermen from the Boothbay Region who were lost at sea during the last two centuries. For a live view of the harbor, take a look at the Brown's Warf Restaurant webcam.
