Lobster Time

Beth leaves today and we are so glad she came for a visit.

More photos from our outings are coming, but here is a sample of meals during the last two days:

 

The last was a delicious Lobster dish prepared by The Hartstone Inn in Camden. We were going to another restaurant in Camden – The Waterfront – so Beth could get lobster on her last night. They advertise “open 365 days a year” – so color us surprised when they were closed this week!!!

Lou rescued the night by stopping at The Hartstone Inn to see if they were serving dinner – they were, they did, and we had a fabulous meal. Much better than the original plan.

Relaxing on her last night in Maine:

 

In other news, progress is being made on the project.

 

Yay!!! Beth is Here!!!

Beth has come for a visit, arriving in Portland yesterday (Friday) after flying all night.  We are having a good visit, and today took Beth out to see some of the local sights.  Since it is after Labor Day, a lot of our E Ticket attractions are closed, but we were able to give her a little view of the Maine Countryside.

Our first stop was at the Fort Point Light House, just outside of Stockton Springs:

We stopped in to visit Fort Knox, but only the grounds were open.  Beth & Lou tried to break in, but were unsuccessful.

And, that was our excitement for the day.  Arrived home, had naps, and looking to go out for dinner tonight.  I hope Beth can keep up with our exciting lifestyle!!!

 

Project Train Depot

One way you know there is a new project starting at Paradise on the Penobscot:

A new machine shows up. We really should just buy a couple of these. The latest project is adding a room to the side of the garage to house the Maine N-Scale Train Layout.

 

More to come …

 

A Day Late Halloween Post

Nothing spooky going on here – all is well. Lou made some nice looking pumpkin muffins today – he is a baking fiend!

 

Lou did not make this for Halloween, but maybe next year – Zombie Feetloaf !!!!

 

Will try to get pics of the new project on the blog tomorrow – took some with my phone, but they are not syncing to my iPad – darn that Steve Jobs!
