    We're in Portland, ME, and Marlin just had littleneck clams on the half-shell, steamed longnecked clams (steamers), and a 2-lb boiled lobster. He wanted to order fried clams for dessert, but I talked him out of it. ;)

    Sounds great, I hope you had a good time. I used to feast on all of those when I lived in PEI Canada. Good Times!

    Gee whiz, Ginga! Portland's not MAINE! Portland's just Upper Massachusetts! REAL MAINE doesn't start 'till you're Down East* of the Penobscot River or north of Bangor! :D

    Seriously.....hope you're having a wonderful time....and if you get down around Bucksport, say hello to the the folks for me! :)


    *For all of you "Furriners", heading North & East in Maine is DOWN, and heading South & West is UP. This comes from the sailing ship days when Maine would ship lumber & ice from Maine to Boston and sail back with manufactured goods. The prevailing winds in the Gulf of Maine are from the Southwest, so sailing back to Maine was "DOWN"....as in Down Wind". :)

  11. I sure envy you and Marlin the seafood! Tell Marlin to bring me home one of those lobsters! I could eat lobster and drawn butter for breakfast! Glad you are having a great time. This is the prettiest time of year in that neck of the woods.

    Yeah, yeah, I know, but we only had two days after the reunion in New Haven, and we would have spent the entire two days driving if we had gone any further than Portland (which was only a half-day drive). We'll have to save Bass Harbor and Mount Desert Island for another trip.
  18. SoMo, did you folks have some crab cakes while you were on your way to New England? Granted, crab cakes are most traditional around Chesapeake Bay, especially in Maryland, but I've seen them served even in New England. I love those crab cakes, in fact, I could eat crab until my insides burst any way you can fix it! :D

    Mike, I was raised in Connecticut AND Maine until I was sixteen!!!!!!

    We lived 8 months of the years in Kensington(Berlin) and then 4 months in Bass Harbor on the opposite side of Mt. Dessert Island in maine - hence the Bass Harbor Head Light in my avatar. I grew up playing on those rocks in the picture many and many an hour.

    And Jim---- I'm sure she is sick and tired of hearing me say that when we got to Portland we REALLY weren't in Maine yet..... She was a great sport and

    WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
