A weekend spent in Maine

Susan and I spent the weekend in Maine. It was her brother’s birthday and her Dad’s birthday is next week while we’ll be in NY, so we headed up to Brunswick Saturday morning, had lunch with her family, played mini-golf (I came in third out of 9, not bad given I haven’t played in at least 10 years), went clothes shopping in Freeport, played boardgames till the wee hours in a borrowed unfurnished condo, wandered about Portland reliving my youth and sipping mediocre au laits, and finally took the dogs for a romp on one of my favorite places:

(that’s Higgins Beach in Maine, looking south down the rockfaces)

All in all it was a pretty fun weekend.

Oh, forgot to post this – I’ve been using Vimeo to send my niece Isabella little greetings from the places I visit. She’s on the other side of the world in Australia and it’s one of the few ways I can connect with her. We filmed this while we were at Higgins Beach this weekend:

Nothing special I know, and here mostly for her, but enjoy it for what it is and scope out the windy higgins beach action 😉

    Not only is Susan from Maine, she went to Bowdoin, graduating about 4-5 years before I started working there. She worked in the library where my office was, so it turns out we have many mutual acquaintances and friends as well. In fact there’s a bunch of odd coincidences in our lives that were mind blowing when we were first getting to know each other.

    That is pretty neat. If you moved back to Maine it would be like going home for both of you.

    On another note. Stan turned 3 today. He got lots of tasty treats for his birthday and is a happy Stan.
