The countdown to Labor Day & Hello Maine!

And so we are in the home stretch of summer, only two weeks removed from September and Labor Day. We all know summer always flies by too quickly. July seems to take it's time but it is only an illusion. To combat this the family and I always take the last week of August into Labor Day for our summer vacation. Somehow the realization that it is time for our vacation helps ease the pain that summer is almost over.

Thanks to Sandy the NYC Board of Ed cancelled our winter break. The upside is that we banked the vacation time and for the first time we are taking the last TWO weeks of August for our vacation. That is how you take Sandy's bitter lemons and make Lemonade.

This year's vacation destination is Maine and New Brunswick. Peace, quite and lobster. Today is Day 1 and we already have 300 miles and a nice stop in Portsmouth, NH, under our belt. (Beautiful town Portsmouth. Worth a visit.) Something magical happens when you enter Maine. The feel and smell of the air changes. Seafood spots and lobster shacks start popping up every quarter mile on Route 1. You can feel yourself slow down.You are in Vacationland. *

*(For some inexplicable reason they don't use that slogan anymore)

After 300 miles in the car we are wiped. A swim in the hotel pool revives me and the little one enough that we want to get something to eat. A quick survey of the plentiful seafood options and we settle on Fisherman's Catch in Wells. It is off Route 1, near the water.  It is a classic lobster shack without being overly kitsch. We arrive and the place is packed, 30 minute wait.  It is late so we opt for take out. The staff is great and friendly and we have our food in 10 minutes. We book back to the hotel, sit down and eat. It is perfect.

Crab Roll

Steamers!


It would have been great to go out on the town and eat but we will have plenty of time for that. We are happy right where we are: In our  hotel room, the four of us together, watching Big Bang Theory on TV and eating "take out". Of course it helps that "take out" in Maine means fresh, plentiful and delicious lobster, crab and clams. Ahhh Maine. Ahhh, vacation. Ahhh, summer.

    1. Successes are not generally the best ones: I know blog this sounds odd yet books at the highest point of blog diagram are not continually riveting reads. A book can be a smash hit blog simply on the writer's name. Disregard these books. On the off chance that you need to read the successes look at certain audits. Something else, the lesser realized creators merit an attempt. Try blog not to pass judgment superficially: The book spread and the substance stowing away inside are two distinctive entities.What truly matters about a book is its blog substance. A book containing just fillers yet has an alluring blog spread will simply make your perusing unsavory. I've read such a significant number of books that aren't really captivating from the start, however have re-resounded with me flawlessly. Why would you like to read? Is that for your own blog turn of events or diversion purposes? Pick books as per that. Be that as it may, it's not astute to read just fictions as they're not going to make you more astute. The more busier you get, you have to limit things that burn through blog your time, and in the event that you go through six hours perusing a book that did simply engage, you simply squandered six hours. Attempt the books which are blog mentally animating as well. All things considered attempt to apply the abilities in the book soon.
