11-04-2015 Journal – The Last Warm and Sunny Days!   Leave a comment

Well for the first time in over a year I missed a day I had  scheduled for blogging.  I’m as surprised as you are but that old adage of “sh*t happens” happened. I normally post on one day then workout the next and so on and so forth.  I  became a bit confused and distracted and lost track of the days when our out-of-town visitors were here. It wasn’t until after they left that I realized my error.  So enough of that, let me get on with things.

We had such a good time with our visitor’s I’m not sure where to begin. We spent one afternoon in Kennebunkport doing some shopping and having dinner at Federal Jack’s restaurant.  A couple bowls of clam chowder and a plate of fried clams were followed by massive platters of fish and chips. Wash that all down with a couple of incredibly excellent Goat Island Light beers and your good to go.  So we went.

‘The best fried clams ever.’

The tourists have all fled southern Maine leaving the towns somewhat deserted as reflected by these photo’s:

‘Off season.’

Federal Jacks just happens to be located directly above the original Shipyard brewery. Of course it’s mandatory with my better-half to complete any trip to Kennebunkport with a stop there too.  It’s her own private Hajj.

A fun time was had by all. The food was delicious and the beer cold and refreshing.  We took a slow leisurely ride home through Kennebunk where the streets were clogged with parents and costumed children enjoying their Halloween night festivities.   We arrived home safely and enjoyed a good night’s sleep. 

My next post will be day #2 of their visit where we spent a good part of that day playing tourist in the city of Portland. 

We’re in the midst of one beautiful Indian Summer and we all hope it lasts all the way to Thanksgiving.
