for our labor day weekend activities, we decided to visit a couple of lighthouses.
everything was swell until one lid kid fell into a little tide pool area. (it was anna). it was a little chilly and scary. so, that pretty much ended our day there. on the way home, we stopped in ogunquit, only because the opportunity to park in a 30 minute parking spot became miraculously available as we passed by. it was directly in front of a bakery. so, anna got a cookie that was bigger than her head.
we played in a toy store for a bit, before heading back to the campsite for a relaxing evening.
on sunday, we contemplated many options, before decided to visit another lighthouse. the kids were excited to play on more rocks. and i was excited to see another lighthouse. :). this time, we went to the portland head light, which is very super-touristy, and about 45 minutes away.
then it was photography time. i was testing out my fancy pants camera, but i was having a hard time focusing, mostly because it was sunny and bright and i was having a hard time just actually seeing. the iphone pics turned out as good, if not better. anyhow. i took a bunch with both…
we stopped at a random seafood establishment on the way home, where i had my second lobster roll of our maine trip. this one was cold and mayonaisse-y, not warm and buttery. it was good, but i’ll take warm and buttery next time.
our actual labor day was spent doing laundry, lounging, playing games and catching up on life. and watching all the summer vacationers and weekenders pull out of the campground.
