Back from Coastal Maine -- The Way Life Should Be Everyday!!
It was nice to spend time with dear friends, do a bit of shopping, some sightseeing, and some good eatin'. We visited with Maine friends we've made through the 'about' 40 years that we have been taking this trip.
We added a new sidetrip or two this year. One was to Flo's Hot Dog stand on Route 1. The experience had been described to us as kind of like the soup incident on Seinfeld, but Flo was not there, and her daughter was a sweetheart. (There is a very specific way you place your order......) Their 'special' is a hot dog served with Flo's Special relish and mayo, so we had to try it.
We also drove to the highest point in the area....to Mount Agamenticus.....now don't laugh........it was......are you ready for this......690 feet high......but the cool thing was that it was a clear day we could see Mt. Washington from there. You might have heard of Mt. Washington......as it has some of the most severe winter weather/temps/wind in the country.
Anyhoo......I am back, but I just know I am not going to be able to totally catch up on what you have all been up to for the last several days.....but....I'll try to take a glance or two. I hope to get stamping tomorrow.
