I am not going to bore you with the details of my short-but-sweet vacation, but here's the gist:
Wardrobe Infusion - I packed very light, knowing that we would be heading to the local Goodwill almost upon my arrival. I was not disappointed, thanks to the almost supernatural talents toward winnowing out the best of the best by Sylvie. I now have new khakis and five new tops. That does not include the lovely scarf, jeans and shirts that I inherited from Sylvie's personal winnowing. AND it does not include the great long sleeved tees that I got at my favorite discount, Maine-only department store - Reny's. I LOVE Reny's.
My daily (almost) dose of Dog. Hard to believe he is cuter in person. A sweet-natured, adorable cuddler. Cosmos is the adopted dog of Sylvie's daughter, Julie and family. Lucky dog. Lucky family. A better match couldn't have been made in, well, the Cosmos!

|Off the coast - looking towards the harbor.|
|Empty freighter making its way back|
out to sea - I lost the bet as to how long it
would take to reach us.
|The ruins of the mansion on Fort Lee.|
|Bug Light - my favorite Portland|
|Two giant ocean liners in port.|
|Jim, preparing the best crab cakes I have|
I capped the trip off with a quick in/and/out visit to Portland's Trader Joe's. It was perfection.
