Memorial Day–May 28, 2013

Happy Memorial Day to all who have served, and to all who waited for them to return home.  Please drive safe to and from you Holliday Celebrations.

Saturday, the 26th, we toured LL Bean and the town of Freeport, ME.  Marilyn did find a pair of Teva’s to replace her ailing sandals.  I searched all of the shoe stores but did not buy.  I did finally decide that I would buy some from Bass, but by then it was time to return to the CG.  Dinner was a potluck hosted by the CG owners.  They put a huge cast iron pot of beans in a hole in the ground on wood coals the night before.  The beans cooked for 24 hours.  Everyone brought goodies.  Marilyn made a Blueberry Crunch Cake from a Paula Dean recipe, and it was good that she had to pass out several copies of the recipe.

Sunday morning we went to Bass to buy some sandals for me.  Then I found a pair of boat shoes that I liked.  Since they were having a sale Buy 1 and get Two Free, Marilyn found a pair of boat shoes also (3 pairs of shoes for $126.  In the afternoon, we walked some trails at Wolf Neck State Park.  Since it was now late in the afternoon, it was time to start thinking about dinner.  We drove to Harraseeket Lobster Pound in South Freeport where we bought 2 one and a half pound new shell lobsters at $6.99 per pound, plus we bought a dozen steamers for Marilyn.  I cooked the lobsters, steamers and a small steak outside, and they were delicious.

Today, we will have to wait and see what we do.
