When it Rains

Last week my plans to go on a walk everyday were fuddled by the rain.  Finally by mid-week I just had to get out of the house, so Redd and I went on a walk anyways.  I decided if it's going to rain everyday, we've just got to get used to doing stuff in the rain.  We explored Back Cove - a 3.63 mile loop around a cove  (I didn't do all 3.63 miles this time). The tide wasn't in, so there wasn't any water, but it was still cool.  I can't wait to go back.

On the other hand, when it doesn't rain, you can do all kinds of stuff like eat lunch on the deck at Silly's, walk around Old Port for the festival, and go to a Portland Sea Dogs baseball game. There is always something going on in this city, I love it.

Here are some pictures:

Back Cove
The trail takes you to the bridge you see in the distance.

The trail is a sandy dirt/gravel - good for the knees.

That's downtown Portland on the other side of the cove.


The food wasn't that great, but it was a fun experience. I guess if you name your place Silly's, you can do whatever you want.  The waiters all looked like they just rolled out of bed, and everything was so colorful. The menu, napkins and salt and pepper were in this little pink lunch box on our  table. The water cups were as big as the play kitchen cups.  When our waiter brought our check it had a rock paperweight on it that said You Rock, and here's a picture of the pens they give you to sign the receipt.  So silly.

There's a bike in that tree.

Ew. Random guy photo-bombed us.

Tiny cups!

Old Port

Old Port is downtown Portland. There are lots of shops and restaurants and it's right up against the ocean.  It was 81 degrees and humid this day, so we were kind of sweatin'.

Portland Sea Dogs
I really enjoy the atmosphere of baseball games.  We met some of my dear Watson's classmates at the game and really enjoyed getting to know them.

The mascot is a Sea a dog with flippers for feet, I guess?
 Redd is one month old now!  He's growing up so much.
A smile!!

My good from Lauren from high school made and sent us this quilt. It is sooo cute, and he looks good in it, huh?
