Maine in October

A Weekend Away!
My husband and I got a wonderful weekend away in Maine. It was a most magical time, the weather was gorgeous, the accommodations perfectly acceptable, beaches fantastic, shopping galore (Freeport & Kittery) and the companionship cannot be beat!

Of course the first thing I had to do upon arrival was step out on the deck and call my children. My most generous and kind Mother was watching them for the weekend so Gwyn and I could get away. Everything was just fine, now on to all the fun.

Another view from our room.

Me at the beach proclaiming, "OK so the water IS cold!".
(oh and sporting my new jacket and shoes)

And finally some lobster! It was too funny, the first restaurant we went to says "Sorry we are out of lobster tonight". Are you kidding? We are in Maine!!! By Sunday, as we were traveling South toward home I saw a sign "Lobster Pound", and I yelled TURN! What a good find. Delicious. Then in Kittery we found a place to buy fresh Lobster at a killer price, and we brought home one for everyone for dinner. Yummy!

In Kittery we found some everyday dishware the we really needed. The old set was broken and mismatched, it is time to bring in some new.

Oh and will you look at that, since our return I have found the time to finish a pair of socks...

That's definitely a winning sock pattern (and colorway!) -- makes me want to join next year, lol.

What a lovely vacation you had -- Maine is beautiful; it's one of the places I have on my "visit someday" list...and congrats on getting a little break with just your dh! I'm getting one too -- but it's just dinner, lol.
