building history and boats

Yesterday was a rainy day so we did what every self respecting family does on a rainy day on vacation HIT the museum. The best in this area is the Penobscot Marine Museum. A small collection of 18th and 19th century buildings that reflect the history of the bay's seafaring past. The houses are house museums depicting the life of a few sea captains families and the active congregational church has been a hing pin for the community since the early 18th century. And there are boats, boats and more boats.....models, pictures, real and replicas.. I of course enjoyed the interiors with a killer pumpkin colored painted floor and two buildings that were tin throughout the interior-a material that is practical for low maintenance and thermal conductivity......
