Boy, the weeks fly by! It's been rainy and cool here but the weather is getting better every day.

We've been keeping busy, though.

Gary got the boat in the water yesterday and is champing at the bit to go tuna fishing.

We took a ride up to L. L. Bean one day then stopped for lunch at The Porthole restaurant in the Old Port in Portland for lunch. It was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

And it really does look like a dive from the outside but the inside is nicely vintage 1950s. And the food was delicious! Gary and I shared poutine (pronounced puts in'). It's a French Canadian dish of French fries smothered in gravy and with melted cheese curds on top.

On Friday, my sister, Sally, and I went to the new casino that had just opened three days earlier in Oxford.

We met Sally's childhood best friend, Rosie, there. She was born with muscular atrophy and has never walked. She has a great attitude and wonderful sense of humor.

Sally is on the right and behind Rosie is Lori, her caretaker.

Today, I went out on Gary's boat with him to help him straighten his lines. It was cool but beautiful.

When we got done with that, we went for a motorcycle ride down to Bentley's biker bar in Arundel. I got a kick out of the bras hanging from the ceiling. It's definitely not my kind of place but it was interesting!

I'll leave you with some pictures I took while out for my walk.

Love the yummy bokeh behind the maple leaves.

Wild daisies. He loves me, he loves me not!

That lighthouse picture could be a postcard. Sounds heavenly there!
