Hi everyone! We stayed in a little motel in Maine last night. The guy said we would be able to "catch" his home wireless from our room, but we ended up with no Internet. The shower was definitely interesting. There was no tub, and only a very small shower stall. I had a hard time taking a shower in it. When James was ready for his shower I told him he might have to do the "Hokey-Pokey Shower." He wondered what that was. Here is the Hokey-Pokey Shower: You put your right leg in (and wash it), you put your right leg out. You put your right leg in (and rinse it), and shake it all about! Fortunately he managed!
Today we went to the post office and filled two large boxes, one medium box, and one medium-small box and sent 159 pounds of stuff home. Our car is still pretty full, but that sure took a load off! Then (of course!) we went to a yard sale and an antique shop and bought a few little things. We had dinner at a restaurant in Kennebunkport, Maine. Since we were in Maine we tried a few local specialties. We both had clam chowder. I loved it, and James, who always said he hated clams, even liked it. We had jumbo shrimp cocktails. I had a small salad and James had cole slaw. For our entrees James had shrimp and fries. I went with steak and lobster. I have only had lobster once before, and it was only a lobster tail. So this was quite an experience! It was okay (I used to hate it, and only like it a little now), and the steak was really good. For dessert we had Maine wild blueberry pie a la mode. WOW, was that good!!!
I am attaching pictures of our food. I am also including three pictures of James in his new hat.
We will stay two nights here in Amesbury, MA, then head to Vermont and then south on Sunday.
Well, I'm off to do the laundry!
