We started with a quick breakfast followed by a short drive to Wells, Maine, for the Woodies in the Cove (see previous post). After the awards there, the host club (Sonny Perkins) had arranged for a parade of cars with a police escort! Even with a bit of rain during the parade, the streets were lined with appreciative folks waving and cheering us on. We concluded the parade with a loop around Perkins Cove.

We met up back at the hotel with our new friends John and Lori (1934 Ford Woodie) and had drinks and shared some fun stories.

The day was capped with a lobster dinner at Lobster in the Rough followed by an auction. The best quote of the day came from this auction as Bill Sampson was doing his best to close the sale at the highest price: Do I have thirty dollars? Do I have thirty dollars? I have thirty dollars in the rear!
