Halloween day we tore ourselves away from the Gunther party house, and drove to Portland. We were able to park a few blocks from the wharf and walk around. We bought mussels and clams for dinner at a fish market, the front has a sidewalk and the back has a dock, and it smells like a fish dinner!
After that we stopped in a bar to split an appetizer of fried oysters & clams, and this carved painting was on the wall. Good catch fisherman!
The downtown area is sort of hip I guess, there are lots of bars, and breweries. I think you'd need to stay here for a week to check them all out.
Elliot and I got a kick out of this Halloween storefront:
Around 5 we arrived at our destination near Lebanon ME. Our boondocker hosts started up a nice bonfire, and there was another family staying there also; they are traveling for more than a year so far, and have 5 children from from about 7 to 16. We all had a great time talking and connecting!
Today we went for a couple of bike rides and had a general slow day.
What's a good caption for this homestead? We found this on our bike ride, and I was thinking maybe we'll set up here next. It's got a lake, a boat, a trailer and a trailer, and a bulldozer to tow them all with. And it might take the bulldozer to move any of them.
And tomorrow we're off toward Cape Cod.
