We arrived back from our visit to WA to find the weather still unseasonably warm, in the low 90s, and are beginning to wonder if we will see the spectacular New England fall that we had hoped. Oh well, if it does not happen while we are here this year, we'll have to come back:)
Cara, Mike and Rick are posing in front of the diner we had breakfast at in Portland, ME. It was recommended by a friend and former "Mainer" in Vegas. An apparently very popular place near the water we did enjoy it and Cara and Rick jumped right in the spirit with a "lobstah" (when in Maine;) omelet.
Rick and Cara are staying at the Trade Winds Inn in Rockland just a few miles from us. Their view of the harbor from their suite is very nice!

In the Eclipse Restaurant at the inn that evening our lobsters had just arrived.
Now I had to get my bib on and dig into my first Maine lobster!!
Mike making friends:)
|the next morning we headed out to the Rockland Lighthouse for a walk|

|the one mile walk seemed further in the 90 degree weather;)|
|had to watch where we put our feet!|
A lobstah boat passes near us;)

This gull kept watch on top of the lighthouse.
A nice little walk!

A lesson by Billie on how to eat steamers:)
I don't think that was part of the lesson:)
