For Memorial Day weekend my friend Kasey came out from Chicago for a visit - we got to do some catching up, get in some shopping, eat some seafood, and soak in the sun.
We had a picnic at Evergreen and saw baby ducks and snapping turtles.
Played a string of candlepin and a few bucks worth of pinball.
Caught the sunset at Prout's Neck
Picked up lupines and local food from the farmer's market - including some tasty greens from my favorite farmers.
We did some shopping for clothes in Freeport.
And some shopping for shellfish in Portland
Caught a game at the ballpark (the first time I ever saw the Seadogs win!)
Made a fabulous local feast - including Mr. Cleaver's scallops, Kasey's lobster and clam chowdah, and my first (quite successful) attempt at crab cakes
A trip to the chilly beach and a slightly warmer lighthouse.
And don't worry - Mr. Cleaver didn't miss out on all the fun - he just didn't make it into all that many pictures!
(and thanks to Kasey for the great time and the use some of your photos - you're welcome back anytime)
