We are off to Street And Company for dinner...we have been coming here for years...all of these neat restaurants are in Old Port in these amazing old buildings. Beams and old wood and great architecture...it's what we love about this part of Maine.
We had local oysters as a starter for dinner...I had sole. Den had halibut...grilled and yummy. Delicious breads, a great glass of wine, a yummy salad. Maine oysters...if you like oysters, are my favorites in the world...small, icy cold and served with a minuet sauce. So good.
Then we walked the cobblestone sidewalks in search of gelato...which we found...yeah!!!
This place was great...they stuff the size cup that you want generously with as many flavors as you want...I had S'mores and this baby...I don't even know what it was but I will crave it forever.
This is the cool thing about Portland...it's not as pretty as Camden...but if you just want a day or two of seriously unique shopping and eating...it is a foodie's paradise...you do what we do and stay for a few days...the shops are delightful...more than delightful...lol. This is Old Port. Every shop more fun than the next.
We usually always stay at an amazing boutique hotel called The Portland Regency but because of Lucy we opted for the Marriott Residence Inn...a pet friendly hotel...and we had water views and were just a block or two from Old Port. We would stay here again. But I do miss being in the heart of Old Port.
So...tons of rain today...and we were craving another yummy long walk but I am quoting my husband after begging him to hit the shops..we can't walk in this...it's raining sheets of rain...
But I am determined!
