I love this movie too Annie and I have a great story to go with it.

This movie was actually filmed in Maine about 2 miles from where we lived.

The little diner you see them visiting all the time is actually called Shaw's wharf and is located on the Pemaquid peninsula.

I was working in one of the restaurants just up the road then named The Samoset. they have since sold and changed the name.

We served the crew almost everyday for their lunch and even catered the food once for one of the shots.

Also they tested all locals for parts and Walter was picked to be Paul Newman's stand in. but, even though the pay was $250 a day Walter wouldn't shave his beard.

Oh Annie I got to see both Newman and Costner very close up. it was really exciting!!

Great pick! Wow you brought back a flood of fun and wonderful memories.

Oh yes the diner on the pier which is white in the movie was painted by the production company.

Normally it is red. It's a real hot spot in the summer time for tourists and locals.

They have fabulous fresh seafood. And the most wonderful outdoor oyster bar with an incredible view!!

Wow we've been there literally hundreds of times!! I could go on and on about this movie but don't want to bore everyone to death.

Hugs and Happy MM Annie!!:-)

I have that kind of love Annie. It is indeed wonderful. I've not seen this movie though. Just not into movies and television. Weird, but it works for me.

Have a terrific day and week honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

"Annie" said...

Hey Grace, Same to you. We lost utilities today, for some unknown reason, so I'm sorry I'm answering this comment so late in the day.

It was sweet of you to stop by and wish everyone a wonderful week. I wish one for you as well. :))

I think you brought me luck. Because it's all uphill from here...:)))

Big hug,

Annie

"Annie" said...

Sandee, You don't know how happy it makes me feel to hear you say that.

You're an extremely lucky lady, but then, I cannot think of anyone who deserves it more. And I don't think it's weird that you you're not into television or movies. There is a lot of junk out there.

I'm more of a reader myself, but I do enjoy films that are written well. (Especially ones with Kevin Costner) Smile.

I'm sorry it took me so long to respond, I've been offline most of the day. It's so hot, we lost utilities in some places. Now , that's weird...LOL.

Have a great week~

Big hug and lotsa lovies back~

Annie

I want to see the movie all over again. it's been so long ago I can't remember all the details. I remember the feeling though when I read the book... and where I was when I read it. Thank you

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
