Portland!

Instead of birthday and Christmas gifts, Tim and I go for an overnight or weekend getaway. It’s a great way to make memories and enjoy time with each other. On Monday, we went to Maine!

When you live in Maine, you ride in your convertible in December. In the rain. When it’s 38 degrees.

We headed up to Portland. We left the car at the hotel and walked over to In’finiti Fermentation & Distillation. The bartender was super nice (like most people in Portland) and we had some great beer and a local cheese plate:

We (I) had been drooling over Eventide for a year now. Oysters? Yes, please! Tim had a brown butter lobster roll. I had a half dozen oysters with kimchi ice.

Every time I eat oysters, I think of this book.

On Tuesday, we went next door to Standard Baking for a morning bun (very good) and then over to Holy Donut:

We had a chocolate sea salt donut that did not disappoint.

We went for a walk around the Eastern Prom to work off some of our breakfast. Below, some photos:

It was a great getaway. Portland is so wonderful. The people are very nice, the food is incredible, and the atmosphere is calming. We can’t wait to go back!
