The rain continues...  
Oh yeah, that's why we left NY...the weather sucks!

It rained in Maine the entire time we were there.  I got to see two more lighthouses, but they were shrouded in heavy fog and you couldn't even see the ocean.  We just assumed the ocean was there, because why else would there be a lighthouse there?  But my brother scored an enormous piece of driftwood at Owl's Head lighthouse.  Enormous... it was like 4-5 feet long and all curved.  He was very happy.

We drove aimlessly around on Wednesday and Scott didn't get his lobster.  Thursday was Freeport, home of L.L. Bean and the land of very expensive "outlet" shops that don't seem to get the concept of the word "OUTLET".  Kittery is so much better.  I don't like Freeport.  But Scott finally got his lobster and he was happy.

Then Friday we were going to Boothbay Harbour, where we honeymooned.  But Mom and Dad said we had exhausted them and they were just going to wait at the house for Chris and Marie to arrive.  So we went to Pemaquid Point lighthouse and Boothbay Harbour.  We went to "The Lobster Dock", featured on a Bobby Flay Throwdown episode on Food Network.  The crabcakes were wonderful, the haddock lovely, and from the cracking and slurping sounds eminating from the opposite side of the table, I would guess Scott's lobster was tasty.  I, however, have learned to keep my fingers clear and not try to grab a sample to verify this fact.  Then we all went to a local summer stock theatre that was showing "Merchant of Venice".  It was kind of a downer..."Jews are bad and Christians are worse"...okay, got it.

Saturday we went to Camden and the shopping was alittle better there, not so tourist-y.  I bought some great yarn that Mom is going to use to make a hoody sweater for me.  We tried to make an air show in Rockland, but it was over by the time we got organized and got there.  So we went to Owl's Head.  Then Scott had a last lobster for dinner that night and we left for Kittery in the morning.

But I didn't get to see Sam...so I was very sad.  Hopefully, we will get to see Alex while we are in NY. Maybe he'll let us all take him out for a graduation dinner or something since his graduation party was scheduled for the weekend before we got here and Mom and Dad were in Canada.

Sad for weather and for not seeing Sam.

Re: Merchant of Venice - "Pound. of. flesh." That's all I have to say on that. Though, I would like to see the movie (I think?) with Danny DeVito as Shylock.

Yay for yummy food, though!
