This was a real nice clambake…

It was late when we got to Maine.  By the time we got to bed we were exhausted.  We slept in.  It was around 10:00 or so when we got out of bed.  Shared what was left of a pot of coffee and got ready to start our day.

First stop.  The Two Lights Lobster Shack.  Adam wanted to eat lobster rolls from a small place on the ocean.  He wanted to do this the last time we were there but it was out of season.  Michelle knew just the spot.  And we were off.  It’s in a beautiful location overlooking the ocean.  We got in the very long line and began discussing our food options.  We wanted everything.  Onion rings.  Fish.  Lobster.  French Fries.  Cole slaw.  Whoopee Pies.  In the end we said fuck it and ordered one of everything.  I think we spent a hundred dollars.  Okay maybe I’m exaggerating but we spent a lot.  After what seemed like four hours they called our number and we dug in.  It really wasn’t that long it was just that we were hungry.  It was also the first time in six months it wasn’t raining in Portland so EVERYONE and the brother was out.  The food was great.  Of course we didn’t finish it all but we came damn close.

On the way to the lobster shack we passed a strawberry farm that let you pick your own strawberries.  Adam really wanted to stop and play and since you can’t pick your own strawberries in NYC we all thought it would be fun.  The plants were overrun with ripe strawberries.  It took longer to walk to our area of the field than it did to pick three containers full of strawberries.  They of course cost a lot but how can you put a price on fun and strawberries all at the same time.

Next we were off to run errands.  I have two plants that need to be repotted and I wanted to get some fun, nice, pretty, cheap pots for them to go in.  We looked in about ten places.  I found two I liked but I was holding out for better so I decided to wait till Saturday to get them.

We also stopped at Home Depot.  Adam and I are moving in together, probably in October and we wanted to pick up some paint chips and we are looking for a cabinet to go in our kitchen.  The kitchen is quite small and he’s expanded out into the foyer.  The counter he has now is nice, but with the addition of my stuff we are going to need to do some expanding.  So we’ve started the process of finding some new cabinets.  They are quite expensive.  We don’t want anything fancy because we aren’t installing them permanently and we don’t own the apartment.  That being said, the cheapest thing HD had was way more than we wanted to spend.  And we didn’t really like any of them.  

We decided to call it a day and head back home.

The last stop was the grocery store.  Since the weather was nice we thought it would be nice to grill out.  Michelle and Lisa were having vegetables and Adam and I picked up steaks.  Paired with the potato salad Lisa made, the fresh strawberries, homemade margaritas and the company…it was an awesome evening.

Tune in tomorrow for the rest of the adventure.

Oh, and did I mention that Adam and I are moving in together?

    I thought you were just going to let that one slip by (moving in together). October is a great time of year to move. Next up, we got to get you to move to New England.

    yeah, you just threw that ‘moving in together’ statement in! Congrats, by the way!

    So, it’s decided then. October. Nifty! Is that when The Talker moves out?

    I’m thrilled for you.

    Have you discussed it with Chuck? Does he have any roommate options lined up?

    Once again I’m full of questions. I’m glad you had such a good visit with the lesbians. So it rains a lot in both Portlands, huh?

    I am so happy for both of you!

    I kinda thought I would never move in with anyone again, until Michael… and well I can’t imagine it any other way!

    You need to plan a VA trip soon, we have plenty of space!
