The Ice Cream Store, Bearskin Neck

At five in the morning Bearskin Neck is a great place for a walk.

Nice and quiet. The next afternoon walking out on the Lumber Wharf with our ice cream from The Ice Cream Store (daughter is in love with Purple Cow) and a Latte from Bean and Leaf I started to wonder what if.

What if the Large Family who really liked ice cream showed up. Say, six really large ice cream lovers, ordered Banana Splits then went to the back table of The Ice Cream Store and all sat down to eat. If I was at the counter ordering my one scoop of Purple Cow Cone and heard some wood creaking I think I would run for the door.

The green building to the right is the Bean and Leaf. Great Latte’s cookies, chowder, (that’s all I get, I bet the other stuff is good too.) Free WiFi. I’ve been in the back window of Bean and Leaf for a high tide with a Nor’ Easter pushing swells into Old Harbor and the waves would occasionally slap up against the building.
