Mermaid's Wish

 Interesting sights to see when walking to the beach!  We ( my niece & I) just spent about 24 hours visiting a friend in Ocean Park ME.  More photos of the town after I get back home.  The community started out under the Free Will Baptists auspices in 1881--when the camp meeting movement was in full swing.
The most famous of these communities is Chautauqua, New York, but others in Oak Bluff,  Martha's Vineyard & one in NJ.

Love the Maine seacoast and mermaids! Sounds like a wonderful trip!

Yup, another Camp Meeting Ground in my hometown - Oak Bluffs. But I think they were Methodists here (not Baptists). Looking forward to more pictures.
