Ogunquit Art Museum Sculpture Garden
Lunch at Pier77 Downstairs. Because of free parking. But it was reasonable; I had delicious light tomato saffron broth seafood stew. We spotted a goat with kids on the island viewed from window. But waitress said goat island was the other island. Goats didn't know?
