Nana's Visit

Teresa came out to visit us for a few days over her spring break this week, and we had a great time. I think we did pretty well at seeing 'Maine'. We went to Crescent Beach and explored tide pools and plants and we splashed in the ocean.

Thanks to a recent 'Best of Maine' article in the Portland Press Herald, we knew where to go for the best of everything. We had Maine's best pizza at Ricetta's. We had Maine's best 'Cheap Eats' at Becky's Diner. We went to Freeport for some outlet shopping and while we were there had some of Maine's Best coffee at Dunkin' Donuts. We went to the famous DiMillo's Floating Restaurant for dinner, something I've heard more than a few people say you should do before you leave Portland, and I was really glad we did. We steamed our own lobsters for dinner. And one night Teresa took care of Claire while Mike and I went out to Maine's best restaurant, Fore Street, for dessert. If you click on 'Dessert Menu' you can see what we had, the Chocolate Souffle Cake, in the picture (back right). I'd recommend it. We had a great time, and we look forward to her next visit.

What a great time. We miss you already mom! said...

What a wonderful time with all of you! It was great to see where you work and play. Now I can picture you, Michael, at the hospital. I can see you all at the ocean and exploring the tide pools. Claire and Sheila puttering around the shops, the library or at home. This was a very special visit.

Is Dunkin Donuts basically #1 in everything on the Best of Maine list?

Best coffee: Dunkin Donuts
Best steak: Dunkin Donuts
