Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started. It looks like we got about 3" overnight. Luckily we're heading south! Had great Chinese food last night. Who knew we'd find it in Maine! Here's what morning looked like - winter ...

Once finished around 100,000 people all of a sudden started leaving the park in every direction and we quickly realised the original plan of catching the subway to Hanover street for dinner would not be the best idea..

Part on the appeal was the fact it was so quiet. I imagine in summer / Autumn ...
It's been a busy couple of days. The Giants lost, twice, Addie rescued a baby seal and we covered three states in four hours. Whew.
But let's backtrack a bit. The morning after the big nor'easter it was still raining, but I could see the edge of the storm when I took Addie out for a walk. It was still windy enough that she didn't even want to go to the beach, so we went back to the cottage for a second cup of coffee and ...
