I'm working 31 hours this week and for someone who hasn't worked in 2 years; thta is a lot! What keeps me going is the thought of going to the shore....
So here are a couple of my favorite places!
Old Orchard Beach
When I was small my parents brought me to Ogunquit and OOB was considered amazingly tacky, french canadian and a big nono!
I started going to OOB because I found a great motel that's really affordable and great restaurants that just serve good affordable food (no nouvelle cuisine big chichi). I fell in love with the place. I don't go on the boardwalk (eeewww) and I don't go to the bars.
The famous Pier.
I remember that at one point there was an aquarium at the end. It's long gone. there also was a big dance hall where big bands would play, gone. Today you have bars,fast food places and games.
I still love to look at it from afar...
The Scarborough salt marsh
A great place to take walks or ride your bike. It is the largest salt marsh in North America.
Ok I admit this one is not in OOB, Maine. This is on rte 1, between Porthsmouth and Hampton Beach. They have the best lobster roll (and largest), best lobster stew and the fried food is to die for! Fried oysters anyone? Half is a restaurant and half is a lobster pound. The seafood is soooo fresh! YUM!
Here's a recently found small 401 Americana bowl hanging out with the rabbit in my shade garden.
This is a small Colonial Mist 401 bowl. I have been hunting for one for around 6 months. Oh I found some but the price was too high or the shipping was crazy! I got it for .99cents and the shipping was less than 10.00$! Good for me!
Now one of my bloggyland friends; Linda @ A La Carte is having some giveaways to celecrate her upcoming birthday and guess what? She loves Pyrex too!
Last but not least I'd like to welcome my 55th follower, a fellow canadian Lydia from Koby's Cache. She has lovely depression glass! Welcome Lydia!
