maine memories

We had some fun times over the weekend. We headed to points north in the great state of Maine, also known as "vacationland." We drove up on Friday night in the wet miserable rain. Saturday was kind of wet and gloomy too. But Sunday was a gorgeous day to be in New England. We made the most of all of our time there (when we were actually awake).

Papa Seal and the pup decided to take advantage of the comfy hotel bed and sleep in. A great way to start the day, apparently. After waking up, it was off to our favorite breakfast resturant.

Bintliff's is the resturant by which we measure all others for breakfast fare. Try not to go on Sundays, it's packed (think sardines).

Our breakfast was extra fun because I got a chance to catch up with a good friend that I met when I worked in Portland. It's always good to talk to the people on the other side of your cubicle, you might like them (and they might even like you)!
After breakfast, we headed up to Freeport to check out L.L. Bean. It's interesting that the place is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You never know when you might need a flannel shirt, or something.
I am so excited about this coat. Can't you tell?

We needed a good coat for the pup. Winter's coming and he has outgrown his other winter wear.

After Freeport, we headed to Brunswick and Bath to visit a few yarn shops (Purl Diva and Halcyon Yarn), a Wandering Seals Family tradition (at least as far as I am concerned).
Since the forcast was for sun on Sunday, Papa Seal decided to wake up at sunrise to shoot a few shots of Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth.

I decided to let me inner photographer sleep that morning. The pup and I went back with Papa Seal later, at a more hospitable time.

It was also fun to drive by our old apartment (which is really nice now, they tenants have garages even!) and by the cute little lighthouse that was near our old place.

Bug light. A cute little lighthouse, no?
