Kansan Daniel Palen and his family have been familiar faces in Wiscasset for decades, around their involvement with Chewonki Foundation, he said.

Sunday, Aug. 5 found him on the waterfront taking a panoramic photo. He loves coming back to Wiscasset, he said.

Picnicking on the other side of the parking lot were Auburn's Wendy Schlotterbeck, daughter Hannah Schlotterbeck and Sebastian Ponce of South Portland, the couple's 11-week-old, Rafael, and Wendy's labradoodle Lola. The family was having Sarah's Cafe food on the way back from Port Clyde.

Nearby, also picnicking in the grass, Abby Abel and daughter Nora, 2, were finishing their lunch from Sprague's Lobster. They were visiting from Denver, Colorado.

Wiscasset's Jim and Jessette Asdot were along the glistening water with friends and the couple's nephews Jace, 5, and Thomas, 9.

Asked how the fishing was as he and his nephews fished side by side, Jim Asdot said: "It's all about the practice."
