I have been away for a few days visiting with a dear friend from Oregon. She flew to Boston, and took a shuttle to a motel where I met her. After a couple of hours of catching up, a huge Mexican dinner, and a good night’s sleep we went up to Maine.
We spent a while at the Kittery Factory Outlets. Unlike many of these outlet places, this one actually had terrific bargains. She picked up a new pair of shoes for $16 and I found a frying pan for my husband’s upcoming birthday at half price. Then on to Ogunquit, a medium sized resort town a few miles north.
In high summer, this town is packed, with a trolley running just to prevent nonstop gridlock of cars. In early May, however, crowds were minimal, yet shops and restaurants were open for the season. And astonishingly, spring decided it was high time it arrived. We had temperatures in the mid 70’s and lots of blue sky. The trees hadn’t yet decided if it was safe to leaf, so they were still bare. A few daffodils had ventured out for a look around.
Now that I am back home I am faced with a blogger’s dilemma. Do I catch up on reading and commenting on all the people I follow, or do I just start with today’s posts? I am catching up on comments left for me, so they should appear soon. Had a great time. Glad to be back in touch.
