On Tuesday we spent most of the day at the beach. This is my sister walking to the beach. It was a short walk, just a few houses down. Notice all the stuff she is hauling.
And this is Mom walking to the beach!!! Notice all the stuff she is hauling!
It was a little windy out that day and we couldn't get some of the umbees to stay in the stand. And there they went flying across the beach!
And yes, I know they are called umbrellas, but we call them umbees. Because...you know how when you are growing up and a child will call something a different word, such as umbee for umbrella, then your whole family calls it whatever that word is, and pretty soon your family has their own language. Like umbee for umbrella, or samur for sandwich...yep....that'd be why they are umbees.
Thanks Dave for the save!
The tide is coming in. I've never been anywhere that the tide came in so close and went out so far!
This was the view.
I was waiting on everyone to get ready to go to Freeport, Maine to visit the L. L. Bean store. While we were there, for some reason I didn't get any pictures, except for these two which were a display inside the store. Honestly, it was too big for me. By the time I found the women's department it was almost time to meet up for dinner. I did manage to buy a new wallet.
When we finished eating most went back to the beach house, but Vickie and Robert and Dave and I went to see Robert's brother, John, and his wife, Elizabeth. They live in Maine, and visited with us a couple of times at the beach house. We sat on their new porch and had a glass of wine. Their house is adorable. Very old and quaint with lots of nooks and crannies and old doors and such. I loved it.
When we were on the Duckboat ride, we saw this building from the harbor. And we also happened to drive by it on the way to Freeport, so I snapped a quick picture. B&M are known for Baked Beans, and they also make bread in a can.
When we went to the grocery store, I believe it was Robert that bought a can of the bread.
And we decided to try it that evening.
