“…In 1954, I met my husband Lars-Erik Wiberg outside my father’s Rockport studio while he was working on a car. Yes, in those days one could park there. We married in 1957 and lived at the Fish House, 27 Bearskin Neck, while I transferred to UMass Art…” – excerpt Betty Allenbrook Wiberg

A New Look at Mile Marker One

A few of us went to the pool at the Mile Marker after a hockey game on Saturday night.  I was surprised to find the bar area inside the Aqua Room closed and renovations under way.  Dinner and cocktails are still served at the tables surrounding the pool…..so, have no fear.  I took a walk out to the River View dining room to see what was going on.  The bar that was at the far end is now also closed and a new bar has been built closer to the entrance.  They did a really nice job and the new bar looks tremendous.  It will be nice to have the bar closer to the kitchen so food can be passed through to the guests who are dining at the bar.  Makes sense to me.
