Maine Photo Diary


Fresh, no-frills lobster on the dock at Three Sons, plus corn & steamed clams (best meal of the trip).

Scrumptious breakfast made right in front of you by Monica & Rock of White Cedar Inn. This was my first time staying at a bed & breakfast and it was quite different from chain hotels. Our room was cozy and clean, but the best part was the food. Clockwise from top: Tuscan scrambled eggs w/ bacon and biscuits, chocolate cheesecake bites, blueberry rhubarb cobbler, apple pie pancakes with sausage.

Portland has tons of craft breweries. We did some tours & tastings but I was relegated to tasting strawberry pop because I forgot my ID. Sigh! For dinner we went to Gritty McDuffs, a brew pub. Clockwise from top: Steak tacos, pulled-pork over sweet potato fries and maple sour cream (I give this points for creativity), lobster mac n’ cheese (fantastic), fried Maine shrimp.

Purchases over the holiday weekend: $5 hat from Gap outlet, and canary yellow slingbacks from the Cole Haan outlet. They had quite the selection of sz 5 clearance shoes! These were $40 down from $280.maine7
$12 for 13 oysters at J’s Oyster in Portland (quite the deal, but quite the long wait!). Sea scallops w/ lemon & dill.


Our friend helped us take these “couple” shots. She’s not a photographer, so I was very impressed by these shots!

  • a rose July 7, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Jean, I think you got a "yellow fever" haha. But I have to say yellow does compliment well your skin tone, and it's perfect for the summer. I have been looking for a low-end yellow pump but still haven't been able to find the lemon yellow that I want.

  • Anonymous July 7, 2011 at 12:28 am

    i love the yellow shoes and the pictures. Thanks for sharing!

  • zhi July 7, 2011 at 12:57 am

  • Really Petite July 7, 2011 at 1:42 am

    Omg I'm drooling over the food! I love seafood!! And omg- are those CH aurora's? I have the green in sz 5 and the yellow in 5.5 (big but do-able). I lucked out at mine first time ever!

    You and Nick are so precious! I hope you guys get married and have kids…hehhee you guys would make beautiful kids:-)
