I think I might actually be obsessive about this book...I can't even say it's the best book I have ever read...it's just that it captures Maine so perfectly! I shared Whale School and Maine Fish Chowder yesterday but there is so much more to Maine for us. We pretty much get there every year...sometimes twice a year. We have rented houses, stayed in B&B's, and once we stayed in an awesome apartment over a barn...OMG...we loved it!
We have walked rocky beaches with Lucy Grace in a backpack...eaten chowder from
Cappy's and the Sea Biscuit and a ton of other places. Den stood in line forever to get a lobster roll from Red's. We have explored tons of towns, museums and restaurants. We have looked at properties and talk about living there...someday...we know winters can be rough but our favorite times there are off season...so...we don't think that is an issue.
We rarely go to any new restaurants when we are in Maine...we have way too many faves that we must go to...it's so much fun!
The infamous stand in line forever lobstah roll!
Plus...we love staying here...we can walk everywhere but Primo's...
And that's just Camden!
We usually spend a few nights in Portland...it's so cool...it's like the best Indie town ever...shops, bookstores, coffee! With a sidewalk along the beach where you can walk for hours...and more of our favorite restaurants! Who knew?
Street and Company and Fore Street are owned by Dana Street...we have been going to both of these for years...Gelato Fiasco was a last year's find...I crave it still!
When in Portland with Lucy Grace...we stay at the waterfront Marriott Residence Inn...without her...this one...small and lovely...you can walk to everything!
I am sorry...I am totally enmeshed in Maine...I would rather go to Maine than almost any other place...
Now...back to my book!
I just might have to find some lobstahs for dinner!
